It ain't no secret that the Hallyu wave's gone global. The Wall Street Journal has suggested that K-pop idols are perhaps the world's biggest influencers—after all, with BTS wearing custom-made tour outfits designed by Dior's Kim Jones and G-Dragon being the first K-musician to ever collaborate with Nike for limited edition sneakers (which sold out in mere seconds, by the way), their climb up the style scene's ladder has been nothing short of meteoric. In 2019, Fendi even dropped a capsule collection alongside Hong Kong-born Jackson Wang of SoKor boy group Got7. Plus, there's also Kai of EXO, a prolific Gucci muse, and BLACKPINK's Jennie, a regular fixture at Chanel events.
Luxury labels are certainly wasting zero time cozying up to 'em, singers and actors alike. The sparkling slew of Korean stars peppering the prestigious front rows at all the international fashion weeks are only further proof! From New York to Paris, here are the K-celebs who graced the Fall-Winter 2020 shows, including, for good measure, the dapper guys papped at the men's shows back in January.
