The top 5 Stray Kids fashion statements that left fans in awe

As Milan prepares for Stray Kids’ big concert, explore their journey from K-pop newcomers to fashion icons with Louis Vuitton, Fendi, and Versace


Milan is gearing up to embrace the K-pop phenomenon. With South Korean pop music sweeping across the globe, Italy is taking centre stage. I-Days 2024 will spotlight Stray Kids, headlining the evening of July 12 at the Ippodromo SNAI San Siro.


Who Are Stray Kids? Meet the Boy Band Shaking Up the K-Pop World

First of all, who exactly are these incredibly popular stars? The group known as Stray Kids consists of eight members: Bang Chan, Lee Know, Changbin, Hyunjin, Han, Felix, Sungmin, and I.N. Their name isn’t just a catchy title; it carries a symbolic meaning as “Stray Kids” was chosen to reflect the band’s mission to break away from conventional expectations and carve their own path in the music industry. The name signifies their determination to defy the norm and inspire and connect with “stray kids” around the globe who may feel out of place or misunderstood.

And what about their motto? “Stray Kids everywhere, all around the world.” This resonates with anyone feeling lost, offering reassurance and hope. The band’s message is clear: “Find our way with the Stray Kids instead of thinking we are alone.” It’s a powerful sentiment that forges a deep connection between the band and their fans, making them feel seen and understood.

Seasoned fans may already be familiar, but if you’re new to this band, join us on this journey of discovery. Let’s explore the world of SKZ and discover what makes them resonate so deeply with Gen Z fashion aficionados like us.


1. Louis Vuitton’s Bold Move with Felix Lee: The Collaboration That Everyone’s Talking About

After maisons such as Valentino and Bottega Veneta have focused on the BTS with resounding success, it is now the turn of the giant Louis Vuitton that has chosen Felix Lee, one of the band’s eight very young members of Stray Kids.

Felix Lee made an appearance at the Louis Vuitton Cruise Show 2025 on the fairy-tale Isola Bella, representing South Korea as the only attendee from his country.

Felix Lee’s connection with Louis Vuitton is undeniable, and it shone brightly during his performance at Lollapalooza Paris last July. Wearing a Louis Vuitton suit, Felix captivated both the fashion elite and his legion of K-pop fans with a bold fashion statement that cemented his stylish ties to the LVMH-owned brand.

Dressed in a crisp white shirt and tailored trousers, topped off with a dramatic black tailcoat, Felix’s look was elevated by his platinum blond hair, framing his face with an almost ethereal glow.


2. Hyunjin Crowned the Prince of Versace

All the top brands are on the lookout for the reigning princes of K-pop, and Versace is no exception. They’ve taken a decisive step by crowning their very own K-pop sensation: Hyunjin from Stray Kids. This collaboration is a strategic partnership with a star who has already been spotted in Medusa-branded outfits time and time again.

The moment that captured the hearts of fans and went viral on social media happened during the Versace Fall-Winter 2024/25 fashion show at Milan Fashion Week. During the event, Donatella approached the idol, literally crowning him and bestowing upon him the title of “Prince of Versace.” The fans could almost predict it: he was the only one who could be crowned as such!


3. Stray Kids Wow the Met Gala in a Tommy Hilfiger Total Look

For the first time, a K-pop band graced the Met Gala red carpet, and Stray Kids didn’t just make an entrance—they took the spotlight by storm. Their appearance was nothing short of a fashion spectacle, with photos and videos of the moment flooding social media.

Clad in dark overcoats, Stray Kids turned heads as they made their entrance on the Met Gala 2024 red carpet. The suspense was palpable as they moved with effortless grace, building anticipation for the moment when they would reveal their full looks.

In a breathtaking display, they shed their outerwear to unveil impeccably tailored ensembles that paid homage to Tommy Hilfiger’s signature red, white, and blue colour scheme. Each outfit was adorned with intricate gold floral detailing, elegantly tying into the “The Garden of Time” theme of the evening.

4. Bang Chan’s Fashion Statement at Fendi

The Roman fashion house Fendi has long captivated celebrities around the globe, and this time, it turned its spotlight on a super icon: Bang Chan, the “oldest” member of the K-pop sensation Stray Kids. At Fendi’s Spring-Summer 2025 fashion show, Bang Chan took his place in the front row alongside fellow Fendi ambassador, actor Nicholas Galitzine.

Bang Chan’s look was nothing short of impeccable, embodying the show’s contemporary prep theme. He donned a Fendi ensemble that featured black tailored trousers, a yellow knitted top, and a long, dark coat. The outfit was completed with a black leather crossbody bag, adding a touch of elegance.

For the Stays—Stray Kids’ passionate fandom—this was a moment to remember and celebrate. The visuals of Bang Chan’s look, as he answered questions from the Fendi team, quickly took TikTok by storm, generating buzz across social media and affirming his status as a genuine fashion icon.


5. I.N Slays Paris Fashion Week in Full Gothic Glam

Moving from the oldest member of Stray Kids to the youngest, we spotlight I.N’s appearance at the Alexander McQueen Fall-Winter 2024/25 show earlier this March. This wasn’t just any show; it was the debut runway presentation under Seán McGirr’s new creative direction for the Kering-owned fashion house.

I.N. added a layer of K-pop excitement with his impeccable look in dark tones. He posted several times on social media, wearing a leather trench coat with a wrap-around belt that alone made the outfit cooler. To complete the dark look, he sported a ring with Alexander McQueen’s iconic skull motif and a crossbody bag. Finally, he paired the outfit with jeans and black boots. We gave this look a full thumbs up; what about you?

Of course, hair is an essential part of this boy band’s look, and I.N’s hair was slightly gelled and slicked back, with some locks falling over his face, making the whole appearance even cooler.
