Taeyang was recently mentioned in a segment on GQ (original here) called “How did I Look?” that asks contributors from the fashion industry (stylists, fashion editors, designers etc.) to comment on celebrity style.
There was a special reason why Big Bang’s “Bad Boy” stage is a forerunner. Taeyang especially stood out. His newly cut off top exposed glimpses of the tattoo on his side. Above all, his baggy pants that counteracts “skinny pants”, was naturally balanced between the material and size, displaying what it means to have the perfect fit (hard to achieve “fit”). The fact that the “cutting edge” expectations people have of Big Bang have been resolved through [using the] the ‘old school’ [fashion] and having made their stage in full knowledge of that, then abruptly vanishing, isn’t that fashion? It’s gratifying.
-Kim Bong Bop, fashion stylist
Note: “abruptly vanishing” means that Big Bang just showed a glimpse of the Bad Boy fashion (since they didn’t have many stages for the song.)
