That being said, it’s only fitting to envision these artists in creations made by local designers—wishful thinking that we’ll entertain while they’re here. So from established labels to young creatives, we paired these Korean stars with Filipino designers whose designs match their personality and aesthetics.

Wonyoung in Vania Romoff

Vania Romoff is known for her timeless romantic designs, making it an ideal fit for Wonyoung’s natural charm and delicate aura. The designer’s favored use of neutral tones, soft silhouettes, and light fabrics complements the 19 year-old singer’s petite and slender frame, and it will definitely elevate her famous aegyo.

NewJeans in Cheetah Rivera

Bold, playful, and unapoletically feminine there’s no one else better to translate this into clothing than Cheetah Rivera herself. Vivid colors and unconventional silhouettes are often done by the designer—giving femininity a fresh new look. Hence, the pairing with NewJeans since they are known for their daring but youthful style.

Le Sserafim in Martin Bautista

Since this K-Pop girl group is more known for their edgy aesthetic, we would love to see them in Martin Bautista’s alluring and dynamic designs. He frequently experiments with unconventional forms and elevates it with his use in pattern and texture—a fitting match with Le Ssarafim’s versatile style.

Moon Ga Young in Mark Bumgarner

The 27-year-old actress often goes for ensembles that are effortlessly elegant for social events. This is why we matched her with Mark Bumgarner. The designer is a go-to in the local fashion scene if you want to look sophisticated and regal in a modern way, and we see that in how he gracefully constructs his fabrics and his choice of forms in his designs.

ITZY in Jaz Cerezo

Much like Le Sserafim, Itzy would usually opt for edgy styles but it’s done in a darker and mature aesthetic—a look that is up to par with Jaz Cerezo’s creations. She would often make use of classic silhouettes which would be elevated with subtle details as seen on the statement appliques and draping techniques she has on her designs.

BSS in Renz Reyes

From time to time, this sub-unit of SEVENTEEN would opt for a dynamic style when they would do their own promotions. From patterned suits to bright hued coordinates, the trio is quite flexible when it comes to their wardrobe, and it would go well with Renz Reyes’ designs specifically his signature deconstructed denim pieces.

Ahn Hyo Seop in Nicolo Perez

We’re giving the 28-year-old actor a laid-back outfit this time around because of his relaxed nature. Although Nicolo Perez is known for his playful patterns across button-downs, when it comes to semi-formal wear, the designer balances it with a monochromatic color palette—a look we’d want to see Ahn Hyo Seop in.

Is Taylor Swift’s New Album About the Pains and Pleasures of Love? Here’s Our Predictions

Taylor Swift just announced her upcoming album, The Tortured Poets Department. Here are a few easter eggs that you shouldn’t miss.

Fellow Swifties unite once again because Taylor Swift is releasing a new album titled The Tortured Poets Department. The singer made it official announcement during her acceptance speech for the 66th Grammy Awards. With Swift being known to leave hints about her songs through cryptic notes and the way she dresses, fans are already having their own speculations of how the album will go including the team at MEGAStyle. Below our own deductions and predictions, and with that being said, are you ready for it?

What we know so far

This is not much of a prediction because there are a few details that are already confirmed by the artist and other sources. Yes, it will be released on April 19 and the album was created in a span of almost two years. When it comes to the tracks, it has been confirmed that it has 16 tracks and a bonus one titled The Manuscript, alongside a suprising collaboration with rapper Post Malone.

Everything is planted if it’s Taylor Swift

The announcement of the 14-Grammy-award winner shocked all of us, as Swifties and even casual audiences had been anticipating the announcement of Reputation (Taylor’s Version). Her black and white look for the awards night, which could be described as a polished and refined aesthetic of the 2016 album, was actually a tip-off to her new cover art, which is in a soft grayscale. The watch choker she wore was also also a reference to the “tick, tick, tick” line in her lyrics spoiler. The Tortured Poets Department will be the singer’s third album in this color scheme, and knowing Ms. Swift, this could mean something. Is this a sign that it would also sound similar to folklore and evermore that had its indie-folk moment?

taylor swift grammys

As for the April 19 release date, history can speak for Taylor’s chosen date. In 1775, the American revolted against the British, eventually defeating them at the American Revolutionary War. The singer-songwriter used to inject American and British references to her songs about the actor, not to mention her own track called “The Great War.” Coincidence? We think it’s too clever to be one.

Soft seduction

Apart from the songs, another way to heal from a break up is by getting a whole new look, and it’s something that we do ourselves. Taylor has indulged in this kind of behaviour over the years, so perhaps we’re getting another one with this album. It’s a completely different vibe from her last album release Midnights, since the teaser photo gave us a sultry yet academia-like aesthetic. And we’re going to mention it again, her Grammy look is a hint for the upcoming concept she’ll be having for the album. You can take that as it is but at this point, we’re not taking anything lightly if it’s from Ms. Swift.

An academic course on her life and lessons

Intention is part of Taylor’s vocabulary, and her timing is just right with courses on her and body work have been launched. From the bonus track “The Manuscript” and the quill design on the merch, to the marker she referred to as the Department Bookmark, the academia theme sparks the interest of many. And if this is indeed about her previous relationship, this is perhaps her way of relearning heartbreak and loss, and understanding love again.

Since we’re in the subject of poetry, the essence of decoding Taylor’s signs and symbols can reach its current peak with this album. Knowing her artistic lyricism, should we expect more imagery and symbolism in the lines? One thing’s for sure—we can’t wait to read between them!
