SEOUL, Jan. 29 (Korea Bizwire) – Big Bang rapper G-Dragon attended Chanel’s 2015 S/S Haute Couture Collection at the Grand Palais, Paris on January 27. He also attended Chanel’s 2015 S/S Collection last fall, and his presence at these shows has cemented his ‘fashionista’ place in the world.
G-Dragon wore a tweed jacket from Chanel’s 2014/2015 Cruise Collection with a metal broach, a bracelet, a leather belt and a pair of sunglasses.
Chanel’s long-time muse Vanessa Paradis, current muse Kristen Stewart, who will star in Chanel’s handbag campaign this spring, and British model Alice Dellal, who featured in a 2012 Chanel campaign, also attended the event.
G-Dragon also attended Saint Laurent’s 2015 F/W Unisex Collection in Paris on January 25. He was the only Asian star at the show, and his flamboyant style drew a lot of eager photographers’ attention. He has been reported as saying that Saint Laurent is his most favored fashion house, and is known to have been invited to three Saint Laurent collections so far. The star wore a jacket from Saint Laurent’s 2015 S/S Psych Rock Collection and a pair of western boots at the event.
G-Dragon has not only been invited to fashion house collections. His music has been used on soundtracks for Thierry Mugler collections by Nicola Formichetti. YG Entertainment, Big Bang’s music label, has been also on the fashion industry map since reports surfaced that Louis Vuitton’s private equity arm LVMH is to invest up to $80 million in the entertainment company.
