We told you Jhene Aiko joined forces with Neff Headgear for their first womenswear collaboration “Soul of Summer.” And now, the soul singer is serving up some model fab in her newly released collection. Peep the pics and get the deets on Ashanti’s new guest-starring role inside…
Soulful songstress Jhene Aiko — whose Pandora Station our phones stay locked on at the beach — is getting her fans summer ready with her new apparel collection. The Grammy-nominated artist teamed up with and NEFF Headgear CEO Shaun Neff for the company’s first womenswear collaboration called “Soul of Summer.” And she’s serving up a few fabuous flicks for the company’s newest editorial.
Curated by the “Post To Be” singer, “Soul of Summer” includes breezy dresses, patterned soft shorts and loungey tank tops (including her favorite Moon Phase shirt which is an exact replica of her back tattoo), focusing on elements of comfort and style.
The sultry singer dished on her new collection (via press release) saying,
“This collection is all about comfort and it’s also very personal. There’s even a tank with the moon phases and a Buddha image that are actual back tattoos of mine. It’s so me.”
Nice! The collection is now available in PacSun stores nationwide and online.
The “Souled Out” singer celebrated the launch of her summer staples collection earlier this month at Skyspace Los Angeles on the 71st floor of the U.S. Bank Tower in Downtown LA. Celeb friends Christina Milian, Lance Gross and more were in attendance to support.
As her new collection hits stores, Jhene is spending quality time with her daughter Namiko Love Browner (whom she shares with Omarion’s brother O’Ryan) in Tulum, Mexico.
Yesterday, the mother-daughter duo spent the day exploring the Mayan Ruins of Tulum.
Then, the twosome got up-close-and-personal with wildlife pretending they were at Jurrassic World. Too cute.
In TV news….
TheYBF.com reports Ashanti has landed a guest-starring role in the upcoming season of “Unforgettable,” also starring LaLa Anthony. Season 4 is currently in production in NYC. And it will be premiering on A&E, following its CBS cancellation.
Shanti will star as a beautiful and talented singer at Marko’s underground jazz club named Stella. Below is a description of her role (via press release):
Not only is she one of the main attractions, she’s Marko’s girlfriend. Stella is a woman who has always been a magnet for dangerous men like Marko, her Sphinx-like personality has an intoxicating affect on them. When Al (played by series star Dylan Walsh) meets Stella, he’s surprised to discover that they share a similar passion for jazz. But will Stella help Al with the investigation? Or cling to her secrets in effort to avoid Marko’s wrath?
No word on the official premiere yet, but will you be tuning in to see Ashanti flex her acting chops?
