Why wear red? This vibrant color can stave off the winter blahs and is perfect as Valentine’s Day approaches, but today you’ll also be supporting National Wear Red Day, which raises awareness of women’s risk for heart disease and strokes. We’re going red today for this worthy cause, and hope you will too.

The morning after Chanel’s K-Popped cruise show, we journeyed to the city’s 600-year-old Bukchon Hanok village to shoot a selection of The Kaiser’s kaleidoscopic looks, which deftly mix la maison signatures with Gangnamstyle patent leather and traditional South Korean patchwork silks
