G-Dragon recently held a press conference in Beijing to promote his world tour at the Chinese capital. The South Korean artiste from superband Big Bang, wore an ensemble from the Hedi Slimane designed Saint Laurent menswear Fall Winter 2013. Am I correct to say that G-Dragon is the first artiste / performer to wear pieces from this coveted collection? He wore the very much wishlisted baseball / varsity jacket, paired with those painstakingly distressed denims with hand sewn chains. Oversized shades, an incredible quiff, black boots and a walking stick pretty much completed the rather showy look.

Not exactly sure why the walking stick, but I am so in love with the jacket. The distressed denims had little chains sewn across them. Effort.

Do you like the pieces from Saint Laurent menswear Fall Winter 2013? I love the pieces he selected, but I would prefer them on someone more cleancut and wholesome. I'm not really feeling the contrast of his somewhat showy bad boy image with the goody two shoes varsity jacket. Nonetheless, wishlisting the jacket?

  1. I didn't like that collection because it was just bad and uninspiring but i like the idea of re-introducing plaid shirts.

    It's weird, GD is a slim guy but he doesn't look good in those skinny jeans.

    The jacket is good but nothing groundbreaking.

    As you are a Balenciaga fan, do you know who will be in charge of the menswear now? I wonder if Wang will be able to do Men and womenswear.

    1. I think he lacks the height to carry off the look. The jacket is too simple for him I think. Perhaps the jeans with another piece from the collection.

      Not sure who is in charge of menswear at Balenciaga. I believed Ghesquiere did not do menswear but oversee the whole brand direction. Not surprised if Wang didn't.

  2. I don't know who he is but I love the jacket. (The jeans, not so much)

    1. He is in a band called Big Bang, very big in Asia, I would think One Direction kind of hysteria at the airports.

      yea not feeling the jeans too.
