Jhene Aiko has been on fire this year via her public relationship with rap star Big Sean, music and now fashion! Jhene teamed up with Teva sandals to bring her second capsule collection in collaboration with Teva to fans as a fusion mix of their classic silhouettes with her eclectic wanderlust style for the ultimate trio of sandals launched earlier this week.
In a statement posted to the songbirds Instagram, Aiko explains “I wanted my new Teva collaboration sandal to have ethereal feel. I went with natural tones and rose gold that remind me of how the sky looks during sunset. I wanted them to look like a daydream of the perfect Summer day” explains Jhene and that they do indeed!
The Original Universe Jhene Aiko II, Hurricane XLT Jhene Aiko II, and Flatform Universal Jhene Aiko II sandals are all updates from the native versions now featuring supple leather straps, lux rose gold hardware and an ethereal cloud print sunset colorway available for $75-$85 now on teva.com.
Last year Teva’s creative director Erika Gabrielli explained the reasoning behind Jhene’s celebrity selection stating, “We love all what Jhené stands for in her musical career and as a creative individual,” said Erika Gabrielli, director of marketing at Teva. “She embodies the spirit of self-expression, search for positivity and sense of exploration that are at the core of the Teva ethos, and we were thrilled to work with her on this collection.”
Jhene Aiko and boyfriend rapper Big Sean celebrated the launch earlier this week on a Hollywood rooftop with a sunset dinner surrounded by intimate crowds of family, friends, influencers and media supporters. The couple showed major instagram-able PDA, the same affection that has the internets fawning over the couple in the first place.

“I am a very sensitive person, so the elements and seasons always affect my mood, which is directly reflected in my writing. Often I sit in the Sun or under the moon and stars and write… it feels like words and ideas are beamed down to me. Whether I am looking out at the ocean or in the middle of a forest… my best ideas come to me when I am outside.” Jhené Aiko x @Teva available at Teva.com ✨
