September issue - Interview with Jessica
Love is a good thing, everyone should be in love, nevertheless what I love is…fashion! Fashion is a way of self-expression of feelings and personality.
In recent years, the Korean entertainment business has been leading trends, leading to the popularization of Korean fashion as well. Koreans are skilled in matching, proficient in mixing and blending femininity, chic, cute and various other elements together. I incline towards modern classic style, less ia more, simple, classic, not over the top. Among the many pieces, shirts are easy to wear and match, matches jeans, skirts, boyfriend jeans too, bringing out the seductiveness of a lady. My wardrobe has the most shirts, they may look similar but the material and details of each are different.
The source of my love for fashion is my family. The mix of kiddy fashion was handled by my mother, many complimented on it. I also shop with her often. I grew up in San Francisco, Americans dress casual, I adopted mix and match the middle ground style, not too grand, not too casual.
I don’t really follow trends, inclining towards basic and classic. This autumn, a must-have is a perfect cutting boyfriend jacket. For example, leather jacket, best pick is black and easy-to-match ivory, can be matched with any item. My latest buy is Chanel’s shorts, the pair I wore to the studio for the cover photoshoot.
In the blink of an eye, SNSD has been formed for 7 years, it’s hard to believe. Ever since debut, I’ve learnt a lot. Thanks to the fans and media for their support, our future will be even more colourful. As for myself, other than my artiste career, I will work hard to fulfill my dream, carving a path in the area of fashion. I just created my brand, Blanc, turned into a fashion designer, my products’ conceptualize modern classic, feminine, and fashion forward, simplistic yet quirky design, easy to match, just like my personal tastes, less is more, dressing up too much isn’t my cup of tea. Blanc’s first launch is the sunglasses line, the inspiration is derived from my favourite cities, a total of six designs, Seoul, HK, Shanghai, Tokyo, NY and Paris. 2015 will be the launch of my clothing line, I hope to share it with everyone. As for the future after that, of course I hope to open a chain of boutiques in the big fashion cities.
Fulfilling my dream in fashion is joy but I’m not a workaholic. Looking for happiness is an important part of life, enjoying gourmet food, travelling and seeing the world, hanging out with friends, are all part of being happy. At the end of the day, attaining a balance is the most important.
