Coachella Festival : Dolce & Gabbana dresses the Blackpinks

The Italian fashion house created a buzz at the Californian music festival by creating glamorous customized outfits in pink and black for the four Korean K-Pop stars.


Blackpink is unleashing the crowds.


At the recent Coachella Festival, the Korean female quartet thrilled the 125,000+ attendees of their show last Saturday, the second day of the Indio, California-based event.

The young women did not just perform the hits of this K-Pop that has conquered the world.


They were also able to adapt to the spectacular nature of the outfits at the Festival by changing clothes several times.


And at the beginning of their show, they wore the stage creations designed for them by the same designer duo, Dolce & Gabbana, all in pink and black, their DNA!

By ousting the usual partners of the group members, Chanel for Jennie, Saint Laurent for Rosé, Dior for Jisoo and Céline for Lisa, the Italian House has pulled off a great coup. It is also an opportunity to create a positive buzz in Asia, which had suffered so much from a campaign that was badly received by the Chinese at the end of 2018…


Glamorous outfits


Dolce & Gabbana has thus developed outfits that are both very glamorous and deceptively ingenuous, highlighting the trio’s graceful silhouettes…but also the House’s logo.


The red thread (or rather black and pink, the dominant colours of these girly silhouettes): a microscopic length, revealing endless legs in black leather boots with wedge heels, military style, adorned with the D & G logo.


But each of them had their own variation on the same theme. The “rocker” Jennie wore a black leather biker mini jacket (bolero style) over a transparent pink bustier cut above the navel, both embroidered with black DG crystals. And at the bottom, high-waisted shorts in pink satin, adorned with a crystal net and an asymmetric pink lace belt.


Like a saloon girl, Jisoo wore a black DG satin bustier, with a pink chiffon neckline embroidered with tone-on-tone pink crystals and a pink chiffon rose, falling in voluptuous pleats. Her black satin mini-shorts were also enriched with two asymmetrical pink chiffon ruffles. Embroidered bracelets with pink crystals and pink organza rings further enhanced this very feminine look.


Black dominates for Lisa and Rosé


For Lisa, Dolce & Gabbana created a powerful black-dominated look with a long-sleeved top with strong shoulders and sparkling sleeves, and lace-up micro-shorts with a flowing pink scarf.

Finally, Rosé was highlighted by a black lace romper dress with an embroidered rose in black chiffon, encrusted with asymmetric pink chiffon ruffles. It was accessorised with a western-inspired black leather belt from D&G’s Spring/Summer 2010 reissue collection and paired with a black DG fringed waistcoat.


Traditional Hanboks


But while the Blackpink stars entrusted Italian designers with the keys to their on-stage look, they also paid homage to their homeland. As they took the stage, they wore black hanboks, the traditional Korean dress. These were custom-made by the South Korean brand OUWR and made by traditional Kumdanje tailors.


And it was not long after the start of their first song that the quartet dropped this first chaste garment to reveal the sexier outfits of Dolce & Gabbana.


An alliance of Asian and Western cultures that should not displease the Asian market, which is both proud of its cultural heritage and fascinated by European or American design.
