We’ve come to know Los Angeles chanteuse Jhené Aiko for her vibe-heavy R&B and enchanting vocal presence on tracks like “The Worst,” “Bed Peace,” and “Comfort Inn Ending,” but these days she’s giving designing a shot these days, too.

The 28-year-old recently released The Teva x Jhené Aiko collection, a collaboration that features three new women’s styles (the Original Universal, Hurricane XLT and Flatform Universal). Teva is known for its super-comfy Velcro strap sandals that are summertime-friendly. Aiko’s collection specifically was inspired by her love for travel and exploration.

“Jhené embodies the spirit of self-expression, search for positivity and sense of exploration that are at the core of the Teva ethos,” notes the company’s director of marketing Erika Gabrielli.

When asked about her favorite style in the collection, Aiko told Billboard:

“The Flatform Universal. I’m 5’2”, so it helps me feel a little more taller. The Hurricane is sporty, while the Universal is more every day. The Flatform is about fashion; the in thing. When I was younger and the Spice Girls were big, girls liked to wear the big chunky shoes. It’s nostalgic for me to wear something like this again.

Style-wise, the color palette goes very well with denim from shorts to ripped-up jeans; also sun dresses and long dresses for the summer. Because there are so many colors in the palette, it’s cool to pick up on the different ones. I have a long yellow dress that has hints of blue and I wore my sandals with it. Perfect.”
