    Dressing like one of those highly effeminate k-pop artists.

    Street style: Fake Y-3 + addidas, sweatshirt, thick black rimmed glasses, unkempt hair from rolling out of bed.

    "Dressy" style: Go in to Dong Dae Mun, look at any mannequin in APM or Doota. Tight button-up shirt, skinny khaki pants, pointy brown plastic shoes with fake wrinkles in the toebox. In Winter, add a cheap black trenchcoat on top. Hair waxed/gelled heavily. All wish they looked like [​IMG]:

    I don't much about his work in total.

    But what I saw of his menswear was just awful. For example, a suit of his would be just a regular looking suit, not even a nice one at that, and in order to 'spice' or 'style' it up he just made one half white and the other half black. This was like 2006.

    In fact, that suit for me sort of defined his persona in relation to Koreans in general it always seemed. I never met a Korean that ever thought AK himself looked good, and yet it was precisely because he came off so strange in appearance that defined him as a great designer. Sort of like, "well, great artists are eccentric, therefore Andre must be a great artist because he's really eccentric". And there was never any shortage of lauding AK as one of the greatest in the world.

    I did once see the interior of his home (on TV), and just like his clothes the man loved white, EVERYTHING was white.

    i notice this about asian males: not all of them can grow a full beard, but the ones that could, always end up looking very alpha. more alpha than any other race with a full beard.
