Fashion of Gangnam Style

Gangnam Style Horse Riding Fashion Of Gangnam Style

You may have already watched it – The viral “Gangnam Style” music video by a South Korean rapper named Psy which has garnered international attention and admiration.

K-pop won’t normally make it into my playlist but this is an exception. I love this song because I find it really funny (awesome dance moves, Psy) and awe-inspiring at the same time. Besides the invisible horse-riding dance, what really caught my attention was Psy’s Gangnam-style outfits in the video.

Gangnam is the Beverly Hills of Korea. It is the affluent neighbourhood where the poor wants to live there, and the rich doesn’t want to leave there – a place where wealthy, luxurious and excessive materialistic lifestyle is worshipped.

Although the video is a lampoon of such culture, the sartorial taste in the video are note-worthy. Here are the great styles I spotted in the video:
