Fashion houses and musicians are like friends with benefits – with the latter being plenty of amazing clothes. Just ask the girls from K-pop supergroup Blackpink, who each holds the role of a brand ambassador with major French fashion houses.
Lisa rolls with Celine; Rose is affiliated to Saint Laurent; Jisoo sticks to Dior; while Jennie is a Chanel favourite. Incidentally both Lisa and Rose have snagged a fashion campaign each for their respective brand’s Pre-Fall campaigns – the biggest seal of their kinship with the maisons.
Naturally, the group’s record-smashing How You Like That video which dropped last Friday and has since become the most-viewed YouTube video in 24 hours, was the perfect platform and avenue for a fashion extravaganza and show the girl’s fashion connections.
Celine was repped in the video by a sequinned gown with satin frills from its Fall/Winter show and a sequinned embroidered cashmere bolero from Pre-Fall 2020. Not to be outdone, Jennie played the cool cat in her Chanel outfits that included a double-C embroidered tank top from the Metiers d’Art 2020 collection and a ruffled gown from the Spring/Summer 2020 show.
Both Jennie and Lisa sported reworked pieces from Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring/Summer 2020 collection. The latter donned a revamped denim jacket which came with coattails while the former had on a bejewelled bra top that was adapted from a pair of crystal-festooned bloomers from the runway show.
Above, we spotlight the fashion quotient of the video. Bada bing, bada boom, boom, boom.
