We’re not sure we’d have thought of Wyclef Jean as a designer either, but the music maker has teamed up with footwear and clothing brand Timberland.
The Grammy-award winning musician , who has designed a 16-boot footwear collection for men, women and children , aims to inspire people to protect the environment through his Yele Haiti Foundation in collaboration with Timberland.
Set to launch in late November under the Timberland Earthkeepers line, $2 from every pair of boots sold will go towards the Yele Haiti Foundation to support reforestation in Haiti, according to WWD.
Wyclef, who celebrated the collection last night at WNYC’s the Greene Space in New York, joins fellow musicians Mark Ronson, who recently designed a trainer collection for Gucci, and Justin Timberlake, who’s William Rast clothing line is hitting the big time.
