Airport fashion is always an interesting subject for me. Whenever celebrities travel, they can’t sartorially let their guard down because those hideous sweatpants may end up being ripped apart by the tabloids and netizens. So I was just browsing over 2NE1 pictures online when I saw their airport pictures the moment they touched down in Incheon International Airport almost a week ago. The first thing that punched me in the face was CL’s brightly-colored cape!
I didn’t even notice that she was wearing shorts IN AUTUMN. But then again, I’ve read somewhere that most Korean women would weather (no pun intended) the cold just to look nice, and CL clearly was one of them. Not that it was wrong but fashion will never be always comfortable. Anyway, upon second look, I’ve realized that it wasn’t a cape but a jacket. Then it hit me, it was a jacket from the Comme des Garçons F/W 2012 collection — the same collection from where Gaga got her blue and pink dress-within-a-dress, and what the very fashion-forward Iris Apfel wore in the November 2012 DAZED & CONFUSED cover:

Onto her other items, CL donned a pair of suede Christian Louboutin boots and a Chanel Boy mini flap (in galuchat with calfskin trim from the Paris-Bombay 2011/2012 Métiers d’Art collection to be precise) swinging on her right hand. And since we’re already on the subject of bags, the other girls are, of course, not to be overshadowed.

Well, out of the four bags, I love Minzy’s Phillip Lim satchel. Plus, she looks the most weather-ready out of the four. Lastly, I wonder what CL had beneath that jacket. I suppose she had a blouse on or at least a dress, but heaven forbid, I hope she was wearing not only an underwear!
