World-dominating seven-piece BTS have confirmed themselves to be the best-dressed boy band on the earth. Made up of members Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V and Jungkook, the Okay-pop group has demonstrated a sartorial prowess that casts a shadow over some other boy band previous or current (sorry, One D).
Whether or not clad in full Bottega Veneta ’suits for the 2020 Grammys or matching Alexander McQueen ensembles for the 2019 Billboard Music Awards, the record-breaking band – they’ve the most-viewed music video in YouTube historical past – has finessed a knack for mesmerising us take care of look.

Jimin and RM carried ultra-shiny, boxy baggage that served as a futuristic riff on the OG trunks that Louis Vuitton constructed his empire upon in 1854, whereas every band member wore a pair of Abloh's comfort-first floaty costume pants.
