Lordy do we hope this rumor is true. In additional collab news today, Jill Stuart NY has posted a cryptic "teaser" video on their YouTube channel featuring Korean rapper Psy and hinting at a "Gangnam Style" collection created by the KPop star and the fashion label.
So what do we know? Well, there are lots of shots of Psy in his trademark suit and sunglasses look, though this particular suit seems to be better fitting than most of the ones we've seen him in. An upgrade courtesy of jill Stuart, perhaps? There are also slo-mo shots of Psy air-ponying, thank God, and there are some hints as to what the marketing campaign for the alleged line would be: "What's you style?" the videos asks, "New York? Or Gangnam?" It's a style showdown, y'all! And it's coming soon, according to the video.
As far as the likelihood of getting your hands on a piece from the collection, Fashionista reports that a Jill Stuart brand rep stated the collaboration, "isn't from the Jill Stuart collection," though it's unclear exactly what that means, and confirms that "it will only be available in Asia."
So really only one thing is for sure: If you want a piece of this, there's only one answer to the "what's your style" question.
