It’s a wet spring evening in New York City. Suga of BTS kicks off his AGUST D tour in Belmont Park, saturated in Valentino threads. Specially designed with the K-Pop sensation as a muse, two signature looks were born from the dexterous hands of Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli.
Suga’s first look takes form in a reversible nylon bomber: one side black, the other white. While the color palette is certainly restrained, its charm lies within its accents. Embroidered with ton-sur-ton sequins, the jacket glistens marvelously, leaving the musician’s already fervent fan base with their mouths agape. Denim trousers and a white t-shirt printed with “D-DAY” in black on its front and a white V-logo Signature on its back balanced the ensemble with a cool, toned-down look.
Whereas look one features the international sensation radiating with light, look two brings out Suga’s dark side with an all-black ensemble. Inverting the color scheme, this look reverses his bomber jacket, pairing it with an oversized black hoodie and a black t-shirt with “D-DAY” printed on its front—this time in white font and a black V-logo Signature on its back.
Earlier this year, the House of Valentino announced Suga as a Brand Ambassador and member of its DI.VAs. Short for DI.fferent VA.lues, this group is selected by the House of Valentino for their ability to embody house codes and values. Other DI.VAs include Zendaya, Son Ye Jin, Sir Lewis Hamilton, and Florence Pugh.
Since partnering with Valentino, Suga has made appearances donning its monochrome ensembles and relaxed tailored fits. As Suga’s looks under his ambassadorship increasingly take on more of an urban flair, it seems the aesthetic tides of their partnership may be shifting in a new direction.
