BTS‘s Suga recently flew to Los Angeles for a special campaign with GQ and Valentino and to attend an NBA game, proving his superstar status.
Before arriving in the United States, Suga stole the show in a chic Valentino outfit, looking carefree and confident as he made his way through the airport.
Suga is already taking LA by storm and is reportedly appearing courtside at the Los Angeles Lakers vs. Dallas Mavericks game on January 12 at 7 PM PST.
Ahead of the game, Suga posed with his custom Los Angeles Lakers jersey that had his favorite number, #3.
Recently, Valentino released a sneak peek at their special campaign with Suga, and the BTS member displayed his stunning duality in his Valentino outfits that ranged from sleek, all-black looks to a pop of color with a bright pink suit.
Along with the behind-the-scenes video, Valentino released a statement describing Suga as “a symbol of authenticity, empathy, and connection” in their Maison Valentino Essentials collection.
The collection seeks to challenge conceptions of “what and how a man should look and feel.”
For Pierpaolo Piccioli’s latest menswear looks, masculine codes are resignified with the Couture spirit of the Maison, ushering in a boundless approach to clothing.
The collection’s message couldn’t be more perfect for Suga, as he has been praised by ARMYs for challenging the meaning of masculinity in the past.
There is this culture where masculinity is defined by certain emotions, characteristics. I’m not fond of these expressions. What does being masculine mean?
