Yet, it’s especially V’s red jacket that left ARMYs in awe. While the rest of his outfit was black, the red jacket and large necklace were statement pieces.
Some even likened the jacket to Michael Jackson‘s iconic one worn for “Thriller.”

Most of all, though, ARMYs are reminded of another famous red jacket… One also worn by V, but many years ago.
When V first moved to Seoul and met his fellow BTS members, he appeared in a new jacket. His mom had sacrificed to get him a high-quality red North Face jacket. She was concerned about how others would perceive and treat her son in the city, so she chose only the best for him and got it in red, knowing it would make young V stand out!
My mom didn’t want other kids to look down on me in Seoul. So she shipped me that jacket. She said red would stand out the most.
Do you remember when Taehyung said when he first met BTS he was wearing a red north face padded jacket that his mom sent him because she didn’t want people to look down on him when he came to Seoul…apparently this is that jacket and I’ve never been more devastated in my life😭 pic.twitter.com/xzdoabaRhy

So, the fact that V wore a red jacket at this prestigious event with millions watching him seemed not only symbolic of his beginning but poetic. He struggled a lot to get to where he is today.
the poetic justice of taehyung who started off in seoul with a red jacket his mother gave him so others wouldn't look down on him now going to paris fashion week in a red jacket with millions of people watching

And, his mother’s advice proved so true! As V wore a red jacket to an event filled with individuals mainly in monotone outfits, he stood out in crowds.
