SPOTTED: Vivacious Bom Strutting in Luxury Brands Balmain, Chanel & Guiseppe Zanotti at Incheon
Our lovely Lady Spring Park Bom is making heads turn with her effortless style during her latest trip to Japan, via Incheon Airport. It should come as no surprise that Bom exudes sexiness without even trying; oftentimes her trademark stockings does the trick.
If there’s any brand that best fits Bom’s style and personality, it would be none other than Balmain’s latest resort and prêt-à-porter (or ready-to-wear) collection. The Balmain bright yellow biker jacket is a stunner; underneath it is a Balmain Multicolor Printed Linen Tank Top (available at net-a-face for $810), whose color tones are season-appropriate.
Bom accessorized herself in another quality brand — Chanel. Bom complemented her outfit with a pair of Chanel Oversized Square Acetate Sunglasses (available at Liberty London for $410.89) and a Chanel Hampton Mini Flap Bag (available at spotted fashion for S1,900), a seasonal bag which was released in Chanel 2011 Fall Collection, and has made a comeback during the Spring 2013 Collection. The bag is a hot item among celebrities and fashion savants.
To finish the look, Bom wore wedge sneakers from Guiseppe Zanotti (available at Neiman Marcus for $595.00). The wedge sneaker is a must have this season! Blackjacks, do any of you have a pair already?

By using 2NE1 as models in the ads, they hope that the image of ’imposing and sophisticated women’ will convey a message to the consumers that ”shopping at Shinsegae = sophistication’.
In addition, gift catalogs and advertisement images have been created for the products that each 2NE1 has designed themselves and will be available for viewing though the blog and homepage. Video catalogs have also been made for the products that will also be available for viewing through those avenues.

SPOTTED: Mint Minzy in cool Swatch X JScott and grafik plastic -

The watch is the product of a Jeremy Scott x Swatch collaboration from A/W 2011. She is wearing the Limited Edition ‘New Gent‘ watch, that features a stylized sketch of Jeremy Scott printed on the glass.

Covering her eyes is a pair of the popular grafik plastic ‘David mirror series’ sunglasses. These specs appeal to the Minzy’s playfulness and the frames can easily be adjusted to their individual mood with detachable temples. Available on their site for ~$251USD.

 YG’s CEO “Doesn’t matter whether she comes in last, CL should just enjoy it”
YG Entertainment’s CEO Yang Hyun-suk told 2NE1’s leader CL, who is to make a comeback on May 28 in for the first time as a solo in 4 years, “it doesn’t matter whether you come in last in the ranking, just enjoy it.” It was a heart-warming advice from CL’s boss.
YG’s personnel said on May 18, “the CEO said what he said because he has been watching CL working night and day on her solo comeback.” Yang is not worried or afraid of the outcome, he simply is giving CL courage, as he is more than well aware of CL’s potential in music. 2NE1 has released numerous big hits, and the comment is a testament to Yang’s affection for the artist and his high expectations.
There is a reason Yang told CL not to care about the “rankings.” Recently new songs has been flooding the music market and Yang understands clearly that being a temporary number 1 in the domestic music charts is far less important than letting people notice the hidden charms and uniqueness of CL. That is the key to success.
Such advice hints that CL is aiming for something more than just becoming a mainstream musician. It connotes that CL is preparing a unique character of her own that can give a pleasant surprise to the fans. She will bring something sensational.
The news on CL’s solo comeback was a surprise to all. Teddy, YG’s main producer who is the secret to many of 2NE1’s big hit songs, wrote another song. As soon as Yang heard it, he decided “the song suits CL best” and bulldozed the project in the blink of an eye.
So CL is now expected to make a comeback at the end of May, in the month where a number of female solo artists like Lee Hyori, Seo In Young and Ivy also made a comeback. Competition will be inevitable. 2NE1 has swept across rankings and was no doubt the leader of the female artists, but now the 23-year-old CL is left alone to compete with more experienced female musicians. It will be interesting to see what kind of music style CL will use as her “weapon” in the competition.
Just 10 days before the official comeback of CL, personnel from YG Entertainment said nothing about the big surprise except that CL will be making a comeback as a solo. There are no other hints like teaser images or even song titles. But it is YG, an Entertainment agency known for its idiosyncratic ways of promoting its artists. This time, it is their silence that is building up the curiosity of the fans more intensely than ever.
