But first, a little background about the nerdy chic trend. You can thank fashion houses like Miu Miu and celebrities like Bella Hadid for the resurgence of the librariancore aesthetic, AKA the office siren trend, which features cosy cardigans or sweaters, stockings, and spectacles. Various Korean artists spotted joining the trend include (G)I-DLE’s Minnie and Jeon Somi. And now, BLACKPINK’s Jennie is the latest star to ace the look when she teased her upcoming collab with Gentle Monster.

This isn’t the first time the popular K-pop artist has teamed up with the luxury eyewear brand. Their first collab was for the Jentle Home capsule collection in April 2020 which included glasses, sunglasses, eyewear chains, and more inspired by memories from Jennie's childhood. Their next one, Jentle Garden, was released in February 2022 and featured fantasy-inspired pop-ups.

In this upcoming Jentle Salon collection, you’ll find that it reflects the artist’s personal aesthetic. It features pink hues, a blend of elements from the coquette aesthetic, as well as flowers, hearts, pearls, and a capybara, Jennie’s favourite animal. 

She sent a huge PR package to her close friends which included her fellow BLACKPINK members and YGX (a dance academy under BLACKPINK’s agency YG Entertainment) choreographer @silvergunnnn. You can get a closer look at the products in her Instagram post above. We do wish we could hug that fluffy unicorn too!
