2NE1 loves American designer Jeremy Scott

American fashion designer Jeremy Scott seems to be extremely popular amongst K-pop idols. His clients range from 2NE1, SHINee, and Big Bang to BEAST, SNSD, and BoA. Other stars who love his outrageous designs include Madonna, Rihanna, Kanye West, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, and Britney Spears.

Most known in the K-pop world for his designs worn by 2NE1, Scott even made new designs for the girl group. He is said to be close friends with 2NE1 leader CL and gave them outfits when he heard about their new "To Anyone" album.

Scott also mentioned in an interview regarding Big Bang and 2NE1, "The fashion and music is really fantastic. One of their songs 'Lollipop' is particularly attractive. I often listen to it in the limo."
G-Dragon wore many of Scott's design from his Fall 2009 collection while promoting his "Heartbreaker" album.

Jeremy Scott had a collection with the famous sportswear company Adidas. The line, Jeremy Scott x Adidas Originals, features apparel and footwear. One notable pair of shoes has caught the eye of both celebrities and fans alike: the high top with a wing extending from it.

Both the white and black versions of Scott's washtag T-shirt have been seen on multiple idols, including three SHINee members. G-Dragon wore the white version at Big Bang's Eversense fanmeet with a pink scarf. On their way to SMTOWN, Jonghyun and Key sparked the imaginations of fangirls with their "couple clothing". SHINee's leader Onew was also seen wearing the white shirt under a blazer in their photoshoot for GQ Korea. Dara from 2NE1 wore the black version when 2NE1 won an award from Inkigayo.

His phone dial sweater was greatly popular. Not only did 2NE1's CL and G-Dragon wear it, but BoA wore the skirt version and SNSD'S Hyoyeon was seen with it under a sweater.

The recently released skeleton tracksuit from Jeremy Scott's Adidas Originals by Originals line was worn by both female and male idols. 2NE1's maknae Minzy wore the complete set for her "Can't Nobody" promotional photo while SHINee's makenae Taemin wore it at SMTOWN. Scott tweeted a photo of his good friend CL with the caption, "MY BABY GIRL CL BACKSTAGE ALL DRESSED UP AND NO PLACE 2 GO !!!"

After Scott had his designs first featured in 2NE1's "Fire" music video, his Adidas line gained immense popularity. Lee Hyori also donned his line after she was chosen to model Adidas in Korea. Stars seen in his famous blue star tracksuit include 2NE1's Minzy & Dara, BEAST's Hyunseung, SNSD's Sooyoung, Lee Hyori, Personal Taste's Son Yejin and Ku Junyeop.

Karl Lagerfeld, the head designer and creative director of Chanel, Karl Lagerfield and Fendi, once said in a newspaper that Scott was the only designer who could ever take over after him when he leaves Chanel. It seems as though Jeremy Scott's talent and creativity is appreciated by all. What do you think of his designs?
