When Stray KidsFelix participated in Louis Vuitton’s Paris Fashion Week show, he marked his official debut in the high fashion world. The event showcased the luxury brand’s ready-to-wear fall 2024 line and saw Felix don a distinctive ensemble. The K-pop idol wore furry white gloves, sleek white and silver pants, and a textured white turtleneck. He carried a gray handbag in one hand as he strutted down the runway. His blonde hair was a frosty shade of platinum, which matched the icy vibe of his outfit.

The show celebrated Nicolas Ghesquière’s tenth anniversary as the artistic director of women’s collections at Louis Vuitton. According to WWD, the “collection, while not exactly a greatest hits compilation, could be read as a distillation of his work at the house. There were futuristic takes on sportswear, like a graphic two-tone windbreaker with a curved zipper, or a silver flight suit with scarification marks.”

Meanwhile, Nicole Phelps of Vogue wrote, “The jackets heavily embroidered with metallic threads and embellished with cabochon stones recalled the frock coats of the Louis XVI collection for spring 2018 he presented in the medieval part of the Louvre. Sparkling skirts that bubbled below the knees seemed to be a callback to spring 2021, a pandemic-time show he staged without an audience. And the swirling asymmetric hems of the spectacular fringy evening numbers evoked the deconstructed scuba-suit dresses from his resort 2017 show in Rio.”

There were plenty of K-pop stars in the audience, including BLACKPINK’s Lisa, NewJeansHyein, and TWICE’s Nayeon. Hollywood celebrities Ana de Armas, Chloë Grace Moretz, and Sophie Turner were also seen checking out the brand’s offerings.

Fashionable Felix

During a recent live broadcast on Instagram, Felix shared some behind-the-scenes tidbits from the show. “Nicholas prepared two large bouquets of flowers, and they were white. He prepared them for me before the show. He sent them to my waiting room, so I took a photo of them. It was sweet of him to send flowers, because in a sense it showed that he cared. He really wanted to cheer me on before the show.”

Felix also gave a shout-out to Squid Game star Jung Hoyeon, who opened the show and joined him onstage for the finale. “On the runway, Hoyeonnim took really good care of me and taught me quite a lot. I’m thankful to Hoyeonnim for teaching me how to walk on the runway. I received feedback and tips on how to do it, which was quite helpful.”

Felix’s relationship with Louis Vuitton began in August 2023 when he was announced as a house ambassador. Ghesquière praised Felix for his “unique personality” and “audacious sense of style.” Prior to his Paris Fashion Week appearance, he attended Ghesquière’s 2024 cruise show for Vuitton. Ghesquière also styled Felix for the Lollapalooza music festival in Paris.

Fashionable Felix wasn’t the only member of Stray Kids who participated in fashion-related events last month. I.N. went to the Alexander McQueen show while Seungmin attended a Loewe event. Finally, Hyunjin was seen at the Versace show in Milan, where he posed for photos with actress Anne Hathaway. – K-Pop News Writer
