Top Seoul Fashion Week F/W 2015 Collections


Seoul Fashion Week is one of the most coveted events among fashion photographers. From the runway to the streets, the fashion in Korea doesn’t cease to impress and generate a buzz all over the world. Modern silhouettes, perfect tailored pieces, and avant-garde and obscure collections took charge of the runways of Seoul. And since keeping up with all of the F/W 2015 can be a bit much, we did the work for you. Take a look at our picks for the best collections at Seoul Fashion Week this season.

Jehee Sheen

Jehee Sheen presented a collection full of elegance, perfect for the modern man. The color palette was somber but very neutral, with black, grey, and burgundy being shown in different shades. The combination of smarts pieces like jumpers and trousers mixed with coats and leather jackets created crisp combinations that gave off a fresh look. His use of different textures gave a modern twist to the classic suit for men.

JKOO’s work with prints and texture is admirable. The use of neoprene and techno fabrics gave off an edgy look to his fall/winter collection. The collection is full of interesting details, like raw edges and faux fur appliques. The silhouettes are modern and play with different proportions that create an interesting look. The prints of the collection tie in perfectly with the fur appliques that create various abstract figures.

Androgyny plays an important part in Byungmun Seo’s collections. His menswear and womenswear almost become unisex and a synonym of avant-garde. Unlike Jehee Sheen who took the classic suit pieces and added modernity with its textures and fabrics, Byungmun Seo played with silhouettes and proportions to create new and edgy suit pieces for men. Dropped crotch pants, wide leg trousers, and hybrids of leather jackets with classic blazers are seen throughout the collection. At first glance, it seems like each look has different layers of clothing, but if you look closely, everything is one piece. The dark palette of the collections makes it timeless and a must for fans of brands Rick Owens, KTZ, and Hood By Air.

His impeccably tailored collection made us fashion lovers fall in love with his fall/winter collection, and gave everyone in Korea a nostalgic feel by incorporating the popular Korean cartoon character, Dooly, to the collection. He took a very modern route by mixing the cartoon characters with perfect tailored pieces that were clearly inspired by military elements. Unlike other previous designers that have added famous cartoons into their collections, Kaal E. Suktae’s use of the characters seems like a perfect addition. The inclusion of Dooly doesn’t look childish or foolish, it seems very modern and chic. It feels, in a way, that it was almost meant to be.

Moreover, neoprene is here to stay, and being a very malleable fabric, it adds great texture to a collection, screaming modernity. The mix of industrial zippers, PVC, leather, and oversized buttons gives an amazing edge to every look. The color palette was kept simple, with a few colors added to make a statement in head-to-toe monochromatic looks or pops of color with color blocking. That yellow fur bomber jacket is to die for. Every look has amazing details and the collection itself is very cohesive.

Music Video Fashion: Red Velvet’s “Automatic”

Red Velvet debuted with amazing looks on their track Happiness, which showed the girls with a fresh and innocent look. Then the girls took the risque road with Be Natural, which showed a fierce side. Now the girls are back as a five member group with their new member YeRi and a new music video for Automatic, fresh off of their upcoming first album Ice Cream Cake. The girls once again took the classy sexy route and showed amazing fashion inspired by an iconic era in fashion that is very on trend with the spring/summer 2015 fashion lines that are being showcased on fashion runways right now.

Putting aside the beautiful cinematography of the music video, the styling is very trendy. The music video and clothes seem to be taken straight out of the ‘70s, which is one of the top trends for this spring/summer season. The ‘70s is one of the most iconic eras in fashion, full of glamour that still continues to inspire. Many fashion houses like Prada, Chanel, and Givenchy were inspired by it for their collections, so it’s no surprise that SM Entertainment appropriated this trendy look for their newest girl group.

But with this comeback, Red Velvet plays with both words in their name once again to show duality. Red is used to showcase their sexy and fierce side while velvet shows their more bubbly and soft image. From head-to-toe, the girls are fully styled with silhouettes from the seventies: Flounced and trumpet sleeved shirts are mixed with modern pieces like high waisted skinny jeans and skater skirts that create a very refreshing look for the girls. White lace dresses and Moschino by Jeremy Scott’s Barbie collection were used in the car scenes for the music video to once again show a modern look of the girls.



Along with the retro outfits, this time around, Red Velvet underwent a complete hair transformation. The girls got their hair dyed in different shades of strawberry blonde, a complete 360 from the black-and-rainbow concept that they debuted with, as well as the un-dyed look that they wore in Be Natural. For the video, Red Velvet wore their hair styled in long, big, loose waves featuring centre parts. Their makeup was kept simple and very natural with only terracotta eyeshadow and nude lips.

So if you’re loving this concept and want to recreate some of Red Velvet’s looks, here are a few tips: Go to your nearest favorite retailer like Forever 21, Zara, Topshop, or H&M and find your favorite bell sleeve top and pair it with skinny high waisted jeans. If you feel a little bit more daring, grab a simple crop top with a halter neck line and pair with with flare jeans that taper from your waist and start flaring out at your knees. You’ll look just as fabulous as the the girls!

Best K-Pop Music Video Fashion: February 2015 Releases

February has been a busy month for K-pop; companies debuted a few solo artists and several groups shone with long-awaited comebacks, resulting in a lot of new fashion for fans to admire. Beloved idols like f(x)’s Amber debuted while showcasing her well-known fashion sense and style, and girl group 4MINUTE got the chance to express a new badass attitude with their fashion. Let’s take a look at the best fashion featured in some of the K-pop music video releases of February 2015.

VIXX Love Equation


VIXX came back with Love Equation, a remake of R.ef’s track Farewell Formula. VIXX is known for interpreting the themes and concepts of their music very well and this time around they didn’t disappoint. The song fits perfectly with the styling of the members as the upbeat ballad calls for very cute and trendy boy next door outfits, sporty chic outfits, and custom made uniforms. The color palette is very on trend and accurate for the season and makes the boys look very hip and cool. Ravi, in particular, looks stunning with his bleached blonde hair. VXX proves once again that they look amazing on everything they get styled for.

Zion T. Just (feat. Crush)


Zion T. collaborated with solo artist Crush for his newest single, Just. The music video for the track was filmed beautifully and gave off a very mysterious feeling. The black and white through the whole video really enhances the styling of the two artists. Zion T. and Crush wore outfits inspired by the ‘90s and ‘70s, pairing oversized blazers with wide legged trousers and various ‘70s silhouettes. The combination of this two eras made a very interesting and modern look for both men. This is a perfect example of a great and inspiring styling that surely will have many fans trying to recreate their looks.

Cosmetic Hallyu: Glow Recipe Helps Understand Korean Skin Care

First thing’s first- cleanse, toner, serum, moisturizer. At least, that’s what Christine Chang, the co-founder of Glow Recipe, says is the secret to great skin. Based out of New York, Chang sat down with KultScene to discuss how their natural Korean products are exactly what everybody needs to get dewy, radiant skin.

Glow Recipe sells natural Korean facial products to international audiences. Rather than going for cutesy makeup, Chang and her fellow co-founder Sarah Lee carefully find the best skin care products in South Korea to bring to their audience. Everything that is sold on Glow Recipe is not only Korean, but also natural and good for your skin. And they don’t just sell anything that is popular in the Korean market. Glow Recipe’s staff carefully cultivates products for their audience and uses a multicultural panel of testers in order to match the multicultural U.S. market. Even though Glow Recipe is based in New York, the company has started shipping around the globe.

Why Korean beauty? Chang and Lee worked in the cosmetic industry for around ten years, and saw that a lot of innovation was coming out of Korea and that the people around them in both the industry and their personal lives were noticing. With their unique insight, having experience in both the U.S. and Korean beauty markets, the two started Glow Recipe to bring people the best that Korean technology, ingredients, and innovation can bring.

“Korea has a really long heritage of natural beauty, dating back to palace literature, and a lot of those [ingredients and remedies] are present here with natural makeup. And a lot of those [things] are present in Europe but they weren’t coming over to the U.S. We wanted to bring those over to the U.S. to bring people great brands and teach really good practices,” explained Chang.

Is it another part of the Korean wave, Hallyu? “I think it’s hard to separate culture and music and pop culture and celebrity from beauty because they talk about it and use it and their fans around the world hear it,” said Chang. “And, if anything, I think the products going forward, will have more integration with Korean celebrities, Korean dramas, it’s almost like a seamless package… I can only imagine what will happen going forward.” She brought up 2013-14’s Korean drama, My Love From The Star, which caused a lipstick craze that led to Yves Saint Laurent selling out of a color worldwide; Korean skin care isn’t far behind.

The primary differences between Korean and American beauty routine? In Korea, beauty and skin tone are closely connected. The goal of Glow Recipe isn’t to give your skin the matte look that is often desired by America, covering up with makeup; the goal of Korean beauty is to treat the skin, to make a radiant, dewy look even before applying any makeup. Korean women are willing to try just about anything to get beautiful skin, so Korean products are much more adventurous than what the American market is used to. Because of this, Korean skin care may be daunting. But Glow Recipe makes it easy for even a beginning.

Also on KultScene: Music Video Fashion: BEAST’s “Good Luck”

Many people may have seen the fabled Korean ten-step skin care routine, one of which is on Glow Recipe’s website, split between morning and evening regiments. “To us, core steps are the cleanser, the toner to prep and hydrate your skin. Then you have the serum, which is designed to penetrate deeply into your skin to treat the concern, and then there’s the moisturizer to seal it in. Those four things are essentials when we talk about a basic routine,” said Chang, regarding women’s daily routines. And for men? Exfoliating, because of stubble, and using SPF are key.

Chang also suggested that people take off your makeup like you would change into pajamas: As soon as you get home.

Along with the four steps, Christine Chang said that SPF is essential for daily use. Masks, essences, exfoliating ampoules, mists, etc. are also necessary for a regular routine, but hydrating and cleaning skin are the most important thing. Trying products for 4-6 weeks is also important, no matter how regularly you apply them, so that your skin goes through a whole cycle of renewal.

All this information might make us feel overwhelmed, but Glow Recipe makes the Korean skin care routine look easy with some links on their blog. I was so intrigued by Glow Recipe’s routine and products that Christine Chang showed me some things, and gave me a few testers to try at home. Having spent a half a year living in South Korea, I thought that I knew the Korean beauty industry. I was wrong. I tried out a sample of Glow Recipe’s products, and within a few days I noticed how the natural products were doing much better things for my skin than my normal products.

Here are some things that Glow Recipe suggested specifically for KultScene’s readers, all of which you can find at Recipe also makes custom sample kits for its customers, so that you can try out whatever you’d like. Added bonus: Use the code KULTSCENEGLOW to get $5 off on your first Glow Recipe purchase.

6 K-Pop Airport Fashion We Want To Wear

It is well-known that K-pop artists look fabulous and their style is on point when they step on an airport ready to board their next flight. With the airports filled with reporters, paparazzis, and raving fans, their stylists, and sometimes even themselves, put on the extra effort to make them look effortlessly chic. K-pop airport fashion has been constantly making headlines due to the idols’ unique looks. Sometimes they even outfit them in the same styles as the one they are promoting for their newest comeback or show a more crazy editorial look, like BIGBANG’S G-Dragon who seems to be coming out of a runway in Paris. Everytime they step in the airport, the idols already know that their looks will surely create a new trend and inspire many fashionistas out there. Let’s take a look at six K-pop airport fashion that we want to wear.

6. 2NE1’s Dara

Dara has a mixture of masculinity and femininity in her looks all the time, Ccreating a very tomboy chic style that fits her fun and crazy personality perfectly. She is always spotted at the airport wearing cool jeans, designer T-shirts or head-to-toe prints that make her stand out. The look that caught our attention was an all-black ensemble. Dara is not only wearing a Maison Martin Margiela beanie and Comme des Garçons skirt pants, but she is showing support of her fellow band mate and leader CL. She sported CL’s T-shirt for her first solo single The Baddest Female that features CL’s eyes and lips. She paired this look perfectly with platform converse and oversized sunglasses and bag.

5. WINNER’s Seunghoon

Seunghoon perfectly exemplified how to dress up a T-shirt, even if that Givenchy T-shirt is no way an ordinary nor simple! The complete look resembles London’s mod era with the black trousers and beautiful chelsea boots. He completed the look by tucking the shirt in to show the amazing statement belt, a half-up ponytail and black rim glasses. He looks cool, very modern, dapper, and, of course, very sexy.

4. Orange Caramel’s NaNa

NaNa is known for her airport fashion. Her look is also very tomboy (as we seen on SBS’s Roommate), but a little bit more refined than Dara. NaNa is always seen mixing jeans and simple shirts with statement jackets or shoes that make her effortless look very chic. In this particular instance, NaNa wore pushBUTTON’s Zig Zag faux-fur jacket and paired it with a white T-shirt and gray jeans. She let the jacket be her statement piece and didn’t let any other pieces from her outfit outshine it. The only thing that could outshine that beautiful jacket is NaNa’s beauty; she is gorgeous!

3. SHINee’s Key

Key is already known for being a fashion icon. He is one the idols that loves to have fun with his outfits. His airport fashion doesn’t change from his looks we are used to see on variety shows and on stage. His looks in the airport have always interesting pieces and give a very good inspiration to fashionistas out there. Key’s outfits can easily be worn by a woman, and this one is totally on trend for this season. Ripped jeans are a must in everyone’s outfit, a red flannel in the waist, trainers, a biker jacket, white cap, and a simple long line white T-shirt create the perfect cool rocker chic outfit that can be easily recreated.

2. BEAST’s Junhyung

Not only is Junghyun and amazing rapper and producer, but he also has an amazing fashion sense. He is always showing outstanding looks for his airport fashion, but the look that caught our attention this time is one of our favorites yet from him. Trainers are still on trend and you can basically pair them with everything. Jonghyun let his trainers be the statement pieces and paired them with black and white pieces that coordinate very well. His wide brimmed hat paired with oversized sunglasses, coated jeans with a zipper detail, a long line white shirt, and a blazer makes a perfect example of how to dress up trainers. Even if he is wearing very common pieces, he manages to make it look fresh and avant-garde and made it to our list with this amazing look.

1. BIGBANG’s G-Dragon

The number one spot is for the king of airport fashion, G-Dragon. He has transformed airports around the world into his personal fashion runways. Everytime G-Dragon is spotted, he seems like he is walking out of a fashion editorial or any fashion week runway. His outfits are amazingly curated by his stylist and has him making headlines for his outrageous fashion sense. G-Dragon paired his Givenchy dress shirt and jumper with leather joggers, Chrome Hearts shoes, and accessories that added a very cool edge to his look. Layering is a very easy thing to do and you can make it look very modern by adding different textures and prints like on G-Dragon’s look. He has not only escalated to one of the best artists in Korea but has now become a fashion icon not only in his mother country but all over the world.

Fashion Spotlight: pushBUTTON

Korean fashion has been in the spotlight around the world for it’s amazing eye for style and innovation. Fashionistas around the world find inspiration from Korea’s street style, Korean magazines, and artists. In this series, we will introduce you to people working in Korea’s fashion industry.

Park Seung Gun is very quiet, quirky, and artistic. There aren’t many photos of hims because of his shy persona. His brand became his alter-ego where he could fully express himself. Korean fashion house pushButton came to exist in 2003, and in 2008 he expanded its brand to Europe and created an affordable sister brand called DRESSMONSTER. It wasn’t until 2010 that the brand was named one of the leaders in Korea’s fashion industry.

Park Seung Gun distinguished himself from other Korean designers by not only creating amazing garments, but also art pieces. His creative mind and artistic sensibility has led to amazing conceptual collections that are loved by netizens and Korean artists like Beenzino, Taemin, f(x), and CNBLUE.

pushBUTTON’s creations come from the designer’s fun and distorted creative mind. His keen eye for mixing colors, prints, and textiles sets him apart from the rest. He elaborates sophisticated pieces that have fun style lines, silhouettes, and experimental designs. He sometimes even creates social commentaries through his collections. Such was the case of his spring/summer 2012 collection that talked about how people see fame and where it can lead to, while still being in love with fame and desiring it. He used Amy Winehouse as his example, creating T-shirts that read “We Miss Amy”.

He delved into another topic that is very common in society, mistaking someone’s sexuality because of the way someone dresses. He played with female and male aesthetics to create a very androgynous collection. There was even a T-shirt with a message that read “I’m Not Gay.” This collection became a favorite in the K-pop world; even if the collection was simple, it made a bold statement. Some of the pieces appeared on EXO’s photoshoot for their single Mama. Moreover, some of the plaid outfits from his 2013 fall/winter collection were used on f(x)’s Rum Pum Pum Pum music video and promotions.

His latest collection for spring/summer 2015 was inspired by mexican artist and icon Frida Kahlo. Frida always loved to have fun with the way she dressed and played with the idea of mixing womenswear with menswear, and that’s exactly what Park Seung Gun did. This collection was seen also on tv on Korea’s Next Top Model Cycle 5: Boys and Girls, where the contestants had the opportunity to walk the runway for pushBUTTON alongside supermodel Park Soo Joo.

Best K-Pop Music Video Fashion: November Releases

November saw many releases, but in the K-Pop world there are a lot of styles and fashion that are often recycled. This month’s list is short but it features an array of different concepts, such as Cross Gene’s more mature look, to the playful and futuristic styling of Got7, and the simple yet vulnerable look for Kyhyun’s solo debut. Here are the best fashion seen in this month’s music videos releases.

KyuhyunAt Gwanghwamun

Super Junior’s Kyuhyun finally had his well deserved solo debut album. His first single At Gwanghwamun features the singer looking handsome in three simple outfits. The stylist was able to enhance the sadness of the song with the styling by dressing him in a color pallette that evoked nostalgia. The nude sweater paired with the white trousers creates a sense of vulnerability that goes well with the theme of the song and with the storyline of longing for his lost lover. While the styling is very simple, everything is paired with the beautiful photography and creativity of the video, making the simple fashion stand out. And can we take a moment and appreciate how handsome he looks?

CROSS GENE – I’m Not a Boy Not Yet a Man

CROSS GENE Best Music Video Fashion

CROSS GENE released their music video for I’m Not a Boy Not Yet a Man on the second week of November. The boys came back with a styling that enhanced the members’ maturity and blended very well with the song’s concept. For the two different group shots, the boys were styled in white suits with black window panels and black suits with a print that features gold embellished crosses. In their individual shots, every member was styled according to their character on the music video and their personalities.

HI SUHYUN – I’m Different (feat. Bobby)

Hi Suhyun Best Music Video Fashion

Lee Hi previously stated that she felt weird performing alone and that she would love to have someone to perform with. While Suhyun from Akdong Musician is no stranger to be in a duo, these two YG Entertainment vocalists, the company that loves to be different, came together on an amazing unit. The title of their debut single is I’m Different and features the amazing rapper and boy wonder Bobby from the upcoming rookie group iKON. The music video has the two ladies falling hard for the handsome Bobby to the point where they even stalk him everywhere almost becoming sasaeng fans of the boy. The girls are styled in girl next door outfits and cute uniforms. However, Bobby’s styling is completely different than what have seen him before, with the varsity outfits. Both the girls and Bobby look beautiful, but Bobby takes the credit for best dressed. He made us swoon here at KultScene when we first saw his solo part on the music video; that all black suit and tennis shoes make him look very sexy.

YG debuted its first hip-hop project in their new sub-unit by G-Dragon and Taeyang. GD X TAEYANG is their sub-unit name and they delivered a video full of neon, accompanied by the boys’ amazing fashion and their amazing party jam. The pair proves us once again why they are the fashion kings of Korea. G-Dragon and Teayang are not afraid of having fun with fashion. Their unique fashion choices by their stylists have turned these guys into true fashionistos. The music video is full of amazing British punk reminiscent looks, ‘90s hip-hop fashion, and high-end pieces that make every fashion aficionado burst with envy.

Got7 – Stop Stop It

got7 stop stop it fashion

Got7 took us to the future with their comeback song Stop Stop It, out of their first album, Identify. The styling is full of interesting pieces, starting with JB’s outfit at the beginning. The asymmetrical striped shirt with one sleeve and zipper paired with the baggy drop crotch overalls. As each member starts to have their own camera time, the viewers can appreciate how much attention to detail went into each look. Their haircuts and pieces they wear give a feeling of a distant future. The stylist played with different silhouettes and proportions that created a very unique look for the Got7 members. There are no favorite looks on this video, all of them are similar, but they all look unique in their own way.

Best K-Pop Music Video Fashion: October Releases

October saw very interesting fashion in the music video releases that had audiences oohing and ahhing. As we’ve seen time and time again, fashion can be used as a tool, and K-Pop stylists are always surprising us with fun outfits. The favorites this month include the debuts by Strawberry Milk and MADTOWN, as well as the different sides of Zhoumi and Red Velvet.

These are our picks for the best music video fashion among the K-pop releases during October:


MADTOWN YOLO Best Music Video Fashion

The newest boy group from J. Tune Camp, MADTOWN, debuted this past October with a very youthful image and sound. The boys dressed in typical idol group fashion, graphic shirts, jeans, caps, and flannels wrapped around their waists, to give them that playful and youthful image. They wore old and new Givenchy pieces scattered on their wardrobe and look quite stunning in their black and white outfits. The styling makes the boys approachable and sexy with a edgy-cool vibe. Did I mention how addicting the song is?

Red Velvet- Be Natural

Red Velvet Best Music Video Fashion October

Red Velvet switched their bubbly image in Happiness for a more sexy and mature look. The girls came back with a cover of the late ‘90s female group S.E.S.’s Be Natural, accompanied with a very sensual choreography. In the music video, they dressed in fitted suits and heels, while their hair went back to a natural dark brown, no longer sporting the different color ombre. This look gives the girls a sense of self confidence and a very powerful image.

And even though they executed this new image well, it was a little bit confusing for a lot of fans. Red Velvet is a rookie group that debuted with youthful and playful looks, and then came back with an image that not even their seniors like Girls’ Generation has ever done. Now, the expectations for Red Velvet’s new concept are very high, and we can’t wait to see what their next image will be.

Epik High- Born Hater

Epik High Best Music Video Fashion October

Epik High came back with a highly successful track, Born Hater. The song not only featured a great concept for their music video but had amazing stellar collaborations with Beenzino, Verbal Jint, Song Mino, Bobby, and B.I. This music video had one of the best stylings that I have seen in a very long time. The styling concept for each character in the video are spot on. Each character represents one of the seven deadly sins, and if you look closely to each of their styling, you can clearly see how their outfits really represent what sin they are. For a deeper understanding of conceptual music video check out our review of Epik High’s Born Hater.

ToppDogg- Annie

ToppDogg Best Music Video Fashion October

The ‘90s fever doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon. Case point, ToppDogg released a new music video where the styling, the concept of the video, and the music are a perfect nod to all those acts that we loved growing up in the ‘90s. Their big baggy jeans and shirts all tie together perfectly with their hair styles. ToppDogg reminded us of bands like Seo Taiji & The Boys and H.O.T. with the choreography and styling. The song itself was also very fun and catchy. It made a few of KultScene’s writers fall in love with ToppDogg.

Super Junior- This is Love

Super Junior Best Music Video Fashion October

Images via Official MV

This is Love by Super Junior has the members dressed up in coordinated suits. This music video really showcases how the group has become more mature and left their boyish images behind. Through the song, the men of Super Junior showcase their manly charisma and took everyone’s breath away. The black and gray color blocked suits really bring out a sexy yet serious side to the group. Even Heechul with that long hair wig looks handsome, as it gives him a sultry rocker vibe along with the wide brimmed hat. But overall, who doesn’t love a man in a beautiful, tailored suit?

Strawberry Milk- ‘OK

Strawberry Milk Best Music Video Fashion October

Strawberry Milk is a Crayon Pop sub-unit that debuted this past October, consisting of twins Choa and Way. The music video is an explosion of color, and the styling reminds us of that of Orange Caramel. The funky accessories and props really stand out through the video, thus creating perfect outfits that can easily be cosplayed. The overall styling of the twins is feminine and has them in flirty silhouettes, like tier dresses and puffy circle skirts that emulate fruits. There are even some cute pajamas in the music video, and all their hairstyles are cute.

Zhoumi – Rewind

Zhoumi Best Music Video Fashion October

Images via Official MV

There is no denying that Zhoumi is a very handsome man with a great frame. But on his music video for his solo debut Rewind he assured us of how beautiful he is indeed. The makeup and styling go perfectly well together and enhance both his feminine and masculine features.

Moreover, his tall and lean body showcase the clothes perfectly. He’s styled in various smart pieces (trousers and blazers), but they have different prints that really makes them unique. My favorite look is when he is wearing the leather biker jacket, turtle neck, chelsea boots, and leather pants with zipper and quilted details; he looks sexy and masculine in a Brit punk kind of way. Even Chanyeol who is featured in the song and music video has very interesting outfits. The printed jacket that he has over his shoulders is to die for. And can we talk about that shirtless seen at the end? It surely had us rewinding the music video just to see that scene over and over again…

Which music video had your favorite fashion for the month of October? We’d love to hear your thoughts and don’t forget to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr, so you can keep up with all our posts.

5 CL Outfits We Want to Wear

Has there ever been a time when you look at an K-Pop artist’s outfit and you really wish you could own it? Idols are mostly always fashionable from head-to-toe, thus having fashionistas around the world on the lookout for inspiration. But no one makes us yearn over their outfit choices quite as the Baddest Female herself, miss CL.

The 2NE1 leader wears fierce outfits like no other idol, because not only does she have the right body for it, but she also has all the sass. Her style is very versatile and always evolving; you will never see her in the same style every time. She can be seen wearing something super feminine one day, and exploring her man repeller the next. Although it’s much, much more, we’ve picked five times where CL completely slayed fashion and made us want to dress like her.

1. Unicorn dress

CL wore Jeremy Scott’s F/W 2012’S Unicorn dress during 2NE1’s promotions for their first Global Tour: New Evolution. If there is anyone who can pull-off this look anywhere is CL. Even if this look can’t be worn in the real world, we still desire and would love this dress to be part of our closet. It throws you back to our childhood and those Lisa Frank stickers.

2. Moschino by Jeremy Scott

CL’s Instagram gives you a very inside look to “The Baddest Female’s” world. Moschino was revived by Jeremy Scott recently, and many fashionistas fell in love with his fast food inspired collection. CL was lucky enough to have Jeremy, his dear friend, gift her pieces of his collection for her birthday. That Moschino sweater and bag are to die for; they are inspired by the iconic McDonald’s golden arches. Who wouldn’t love to have those pieces in their wardrobe?

3. Versus by VERSACE

During the Falling in Love promotions, 2NE1 wore head-to-toe Versus by Versace. The label really brought out those iconic prints that Gianni Versace made famous in the ‘90s. This collection sold out online really fast, and the crop top that CL is wearing was one of the most coveted pieces. If we could have that crop top we could easily pair it with so many things, like ripped boyfriend jeans, a circle skirt, or joggers. It could work for anything!

4. Kesh for American Apparel

CL wears from high-end designers to more accessible labels like American Apparel. When 2NE1 wore the acclaimed Kesh for American Apparel pieces, Blackjacks around the world were very happy. The collection had just launched and it was very attainable since it wasn’t crazy expensive.

5. Shaun Samson and Chanel

Who doesn’t love cats, especially if it’s a cat that has piercings all over his face? CL wore Shaun Samson’s SS 2013 pierced cat shirt and paired it with checkered shorts and Chanel creepers. G-Dragon also wore these pieces before during his Michi Go promotions. But seeing the way CL styled both items together, it really makes it look effortlessly chic.

K-Pop Fashion Predictions: Spring-Summer 2015

Fashion Week is the time of year when the major design houses present their newest collections. The designers showcase a season in advance so that magazines and buyers know what will be in next season. For fashionistas out there, this is the perfect opportunity to know what new trends are coming and thus be prepared when the next season arrives.

There is no question that K-Pop idols love to wear the latest trends and newest collections on stage, music videos, performances, and their everyday lives. Now that all the major Fashion Weeks around the world are over, here are our predictions of some possible fashion that you’ll see K-Pop idols wearing during Spring-Summer 2015.

1. Chanel

Chanel presented their newest collection  was inspired by menswear and powerful women. Chanel took us back when women began wearing suits to demonstrate their power. There was even a staged “feminist” protest by the models and head designer Karl Lagerfeld at the end.

G-Dragon is always seen attending the Chanel shows in Paris every season. He is an avid lover of the brand, and even wore head-to-toe Chanel pieces on his video for One Of A Kind. His androgynous figure let’s him play with the brand’s womenswear, and there is no doubt we will see him sport some of the Chanel pieces from the Spring-Summer 2015 collection.

Moreover, Girls’ Generation’s outfits are typically custom made for their specific concept, which tend to look more like costumes rather than actual fashion. Chanel’s collection had many pieces that would look amazing on all the girls.  We have already seen some of the girls of the group wearing the brand in their everyday life and the I Got a Boy teaser pictures, but not on stage. Wouldn’t it be amazing to see them all styled in head to toe Chanel pieces? One can dare to dream.

2. Hood By Air

K-Pop idols love to wear Hood By Air, and the latest collections for womenswear and menswear had many pieces that we will definitely be seeing in K-Pop very soon. HBA showcased over-the-top accessories for their menswear collection; a cool and unique take on men suits and their iconic prints. Hood By Air catches K-Pop stylists’ attention because of their uniqueness and stage ready pieces. We will definitely see idols like BTS, SHINee, 2NE1, BEAST, EXO, and K-Hip-hop rapper Beenzino wearing this collection in their upcoming projects.

3. Moschino by Jeremy Scott

Jeremy Scott’s second womenswear collection for the iconic brand Moschino has everyone in the fashion world talking because this season’s inspiration was none other than Barbie. The Barbie collection is definitely every girls dream. 2NE1 has a long love affair with designer Jeremy Scott’s designs. Not only have they been his muses, but they have always supported their friend’s work. CL has already worn Moschino several times, like when she was Jeremy Scott’s date for a Harper’s Bazaar ICONS Fashion Week party. Not only can we predict 2NE1 wearing Moschino, but we can picture Red Velvet, f(x), and Lee Hi sporting the brand.

Moschino also revealed it’s menswear collection that was full of prints and was very reminiscent of the ’80s. We can already see SHINee, BIGBANG, BEAST, Got7, and even the new group MADTOWN showing Moschino’s latest pieces in their variety show appearances, stages, and album jackets.

4. KTZ

KTZ is known for it’s avant-garde designs and incredible statement pieces. The brand’s womenswear and menswear were inspired by Greece and Alexander The Great. The collection is full of black and white and gold that give a very strong image. Both collections could be styled perfectly and fit a lot of bands in K-Pop.

BTS has worn KTZ in the past, and Rap Monster’s outfit decked out in the brand has become a K-Pop cosplay favorite. We have mentioned 2NE1 before, but they are one of the most fashion forward girl groups in K-Pop and we are sure we will see them in this collection. Block B is another group that has shown love in the past for KTZ. A lot of pieces from their Very Good video were KTZ. Other K-Pop artists that we can expect to see wearing KTZ are once again SHINee, EXO, BEAST, f(x), B1A4, and even the men of Super Junior.

5.  Versace

When you think of Versace what immediately comes to mind are flashy, opulent, and over the top pieces. For the Spring-Summer 2015 collection, Donatella Versace had a lot of fun with her designs. The whole collection has amazing cutouts, beautiful metallics, and, of course, Versace’s iconic Medusa head. Whether it’s a complete head to toe look or just a compliment piece of an outfit, Versace’s pieces are always a great statement. 2NE1 and BIGBANG are groups known for incorporating pieces from the brand. Girl groups like 4MINUTE, T-Ara, and boy groups like WINNER and BTS would also look awesome in pieces from this collection.

K-Pop and fashion go hand-in-hand, and every time there is a new collection, you can’t help but wonder who will be wearing it next in the K-Pop world.
