Kylian Mbappé has linked up with Oakley to release his first signature pair of sunglasses, fresh from signing a deal with the eyewear brand earlier this year.
Handpicked by the French talisman, the Signature Series Deadbolt is a statement piece. The pair’s unconventional design is inspired by Mbappé’s boundary-pushing career, using a single element to connect the frame with the temples.
The PSG man joined Team Oakley in January of this year, citing the eyewear giant’s “disruptive, innovative spirit” and commitment to creating positive change as the reasons behind the move. The Deadbolt, featuring monogram detailing and a black and gold Balon D’Or-inspired colourway, are Mbappé’s first collaboration with the American brand.
As a nod to both Kylian’s birth year and the year his country won the World Cup as host nation, only 1998 units of the limited-edition shades will be available for purchase.
The Kylian Mbappé Signature Series Deadbolt is now available on oakley.com and in select Oakley retail stores worldwide.
