DSP Media’s recent project-group K.A.R.D will reportedly be making their official debut, after about 6 months as being a project co-ed group. Despite coming from a relatively small company, K.A.R.D has experienced success overseas as well as in Korea. The group has had 3 releases so far, “Oh Na Na,” “Don’t Recall,” and “RUMOR.” After 6 months of releases without music show promotions, it’s been reported that they will debut in mid-July.
Before their upcoming debut, should we go over their outfit concepts from the past 3 releases?
“Oh Na Na” Fashion Concpet
For their first “pre-release” single, “Oh Na Na,” the stylists made sure to focus on black colors and leathers. It seems to be reminiscent of the L.A street fashion that you could find in the 90s. For the girls, fishnet stockings, knee-high socks, and killer high stilletos make the fashion all about the legs. As for the overall group fashion concept, black and leather are really the highlights of this era’s fashion. Unless, of course, you’re willing to pull out a fur scarf in the middle of the summer. Other than that, just make sure to remember the excessive leather, black colors, and if you’re a girl, knee-high anything with stilletos.
“Don’t Recall” Fashion Concept
“Don’t Recall” brought a new sound, and along that comes a change in fashion! Most of the music video was shot in their second shot, with their all-white outfits. Like, the name suggests, the fashion for this shot is mainly to wear all-white but keep these points in mind. For guys, either wear a button-down shirt or something casual with a necklace to change the look to a more classy look. For girls, try fusing casual looks with formal blazers. Don’t forget your shoes and legs too! The fishnet and stilleto concept is still here, just in all-white!
For the other outfits of Don’t Recall, there’s a few points to keep in mind as well. The leather was replaced with velvet-textured suits for the guys, and glittery and metallic dresses for the girls! B.M and J.Seph wear formal wear, but in such bright colors that it almost seems casual. Somin and Jiwoo are still wearing their black stilletos and fishnet stockings, but now they’ve changed their casual streetwear to metallic-textured dresses and glittery dresses. They match black sequins with white floral patterns.
“RUMOR” Fashion Concept
For their final comeback before their official debut, the group went two completely different ways with their fashion for the song “RUMOR.” In the first photo, we see them sporting what seems to be a classed-up version of military fashion. The dark-green is kept in all of their outfits, but each member wears it differently. While B.M and Jiwoo choose to wear tye-dye bomber jackets to add color and have all different textures, Somin and J.Seph are wearing outfits with the same color and similar texture all the way down. Notice that their shoes are all black, but varying textures and styles.
In the second photo, we can see the group styling themselves in more formal wear for the song. Jiwoo and J.Seph wear plain white tees with black pants, with flashy, sequined jackets being their fashion’s killing point. Somin and B.M wear all black, but their clothes seem to have more variation in style. Deep cuts, frills, and waves highlight the two’s fashion.
