Seoul Fashion Week for the 2015 Spring/Summer collections took place from October 17 to October 22. And the style was amazing! I am working on a post of my favorite collections, but till then we must talk about the street fashion. It was diverse, chic and so on point! A lot of Korean fashion magazines had features about the best street style from this year’s fashion week. They discussed the biggest trends and the best looks! I loved Cosmopolitan and Elle’s chosen looks, so I’ve featured both pictorials below. The rest of the featured photos are street snaps from HypeBeast. I’ll give $20 to whoever spots DoucheBag Guy from Korea’s Next Top Model!
Korean street style is really starting to be noticed and there was even a featured article about the subject in American Vogue! You can read the article, called The Men of K-pop Are the Reigning Street Stars of Seoul Fashion Week, here! K-pop mentions include BIGBANG’s G-Dragon and Taeyang, and SHINee’s Lee Taemin and Key. Enjoy an except below as well!
Look at G-Dragon. Crooning for Big Bang may have launched his career, but he is now as well known for collaborating with Nicola Formichetti and Mugler as with Snoop Dogg. As one of the first celebrities to champion Seoul’s gender-neutral fashions, G-Dragon is not afraid to go big, from an arm full of gold Tiffany bangles to rainbow-striped fur. Two weeks ago, he was photographed with Karl Lagerfeld—or “with KING,” as he put it—wearing a Last Tango in Paris–style wide-brimmed hat perched atop a mess of curls, with blue velvet pants and a Chanel bouclé jacket. Where Kanye West couldn’t wear a Givenchy kilt without sparking a media storm, G-Dragon was applauded for doing the same (and has been doing it for years).
