BTS seals their status as K-pop fashion icons

The K-Pop music industry has created a new genre of fashion icon and influencer, especially when it comes to the international K-Pop group BTS. The K-Pop group is known for their unique sense of style that combines to create a cohesive group look for any performance or public appearance but they are true fashion icons on the latest Esquire magazine cover.

Esquire is known for features some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry but BTS could be considered one of the most fashionable stars to grace the cover. Each member of BTS has their own style and complements the other members of the group making them one of the most stylish K-Pop groups.

One of the star designers featured through this edition was Berluti featuring traditional menswear styles with refined coats featuring chic prints for individual photos. Another key designer featured in the casual group shot was Gucci wore by V, RM, Jung Kook, Suga, and Jin. The spread also featured the traditional black and white photos Esquire is known for with individual shots of the group wearing Bottega Veneta, Valentino, and Celine.

The new edition of Esquire was released the day after BTS performed on the American Music Awards with a similar sense of style paying homage to menswear featuring tailored suits, long coats, and colorful sweaters. Esquire featured BTS on the November cover edition to celebrate the release of their latest studio album ‘Be’ and the album reflects the challenges the group has faced during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Esquire also featured an interview with all the BTS members including Suga, Jungkook, RM, V, J-Hope, Jin, and Jimin. RM explains that the group won’t be pursuing any aggressive songs or music that criticizes social issues acknowledging everyone is going through hard times right now.

BTS had to cancel their promotion tour for ‘Be’ but are spending their extra time rehearsing for when they’re able to start performing and touring again. The K-Pop group also explains that this extra time has strengthened their bond and given them inspiration for future music of the group.
