JD Teams With Cartier For Limited Series Eyewear

Jermaine "JD"

Dupri and Cartier have collaborated to create a limited series of eyewear to benefit

the Hurricane Relief Fund.

The specially designed, limited series of eyewear was created by Dupri and Cartier

to benefit an important charity to both, the Hurricane Relief Fund.

“I’ve been a long

time supporter of Cartier and they know this,” Dupri explained to AllHipHop.com.

“So, I was in the store one day getting something fixed and the thought

[to create the eyewear] came to my mind. I asked for the manager and I’m thinking

they gonna say ‘hell no,’ but they took a shot and thought it was

a cool idea.”

The eyewear combines rimless

frames with bubinga wood, a platinum finish and a fade lens.

Jermaine Dupri’s signature

is etched in the lens and the frame is adorned with the classic Cartier “C”

logo.

Dupri recently hosted a

Cartier private fund-raising event last week (Dec. 7) at the House of Cartier

in Atlanta, Georgia.

Slim of 112, Usher, Monica

and Nelly attended the star-studded invitation only event. Other notable guests

included Kenny Burns of RyanKenny clothing, Atlanta Hawks’ Kevin Willis.

The limited edition glasses are valued at $1,500 and can be purchased exclusively

at the Cartier boutique in Atlanta, located at Lenox Square Mall.

“I wanted to do something

that had my thoughts and prayers on it, so I was thinking of something special

that would let the victims know I really care,” Dupri said of involving

the Hurricane Relief Fund.

A percentage of

the proceeds will be donated to The Atlanta Community Food Bank and City of

Refuge – both local liaisons for the Hurricane Relief Fund.
