EXO Kai x Gucci Capsule Collection
On 22 February 2021, Kai from EXO shook his fans with pictures of him modelling pieces from the Kai x Gucci collection. If you didn’t already know, Kai was appointed as the global ambassador for Gucci in 2019. With the singer’s collaboration, he has become the first Korean celeb to have a collection with Gucci under his belt.
The collection debuted in Korea, before launching in stores in China, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Thailand and, of course, Singapore. Here’s a preview of what the pieces look like IRL, courtesy of fans who have already gotten their hands on the drop, so EXO-Ls can start planning their purchases before making their way to the Gucci ION Orchard store come 17 April 2021.
On top of the fact that Kai’s favourite animal is a bear, the bear-with-a-bow-tie motif in this collection is also inspired by one of his nicknames, “Nini Bear”. The nickname was given to him by EXO-Ls, EXO’s fanbase name, adding to the significance of the designs for fans.
The Kai x Gucci monogram jacket featuring the brand’s iconic red and green stripes along the side is a must-have if you’re both a Kai and Gucci stan.
Compared to the usual Gucci tee with the house’s logo, Kai’s version gives it a cute spin with the collection’s bow tie-clad teddy bear.
Apart from clothes with the double G logo, the collection also includes more subtle items, such as the cardigan with the super adorable teddy bear embroidered on the left.
Of course, bags are also a key part of the collection. This crossbody bag designed in matching earthy tones with the bear’s face plastered in the centre is roomy enough to fit a brolly, especially handy considering the erratic weather we’ve been experiencing lately.
Wallets, be they short, long or otherwise, seem to be popular, with many users posting their purchases on Instagram. No surprises why; these are too cute to bear.
Besides the wallets, it seems like the Gucci Rhyton Sneakers are shaping up to be a must-have from the drop.
On top of clothes and leather goods, there will also be items such as this silk scarf. Tie it around your bag handle, or even your hair.
EXO’s Kai x Gucci Collection Pieces Are Both Swag And Cute Like The Man Himself
As mentioned above, the Kai x Gucci collection will be landing in the Gucci ION Orchard store on 17 April 2021. While you’re there, you can also check out the Gucci x Doraemon collection in the flesh.
