K-Pop does the 18th century. So I was watching the K-Pop video for BigBang’s "Fantastic Baby" (don’t judge me!) and saw these two outfits and immediately knew I had to blog them. Totally not 18th century of course, but I think they’re a fantastic look at a modern interpretation of the 18th century style.
The top looks very much like an 18th century banyan circa 1770s. Take a look at this red banyan for comparison.
The bottom is a 21st century interpretation of a late 18thc (circa 1790s, very early 1800s) French suit. Take a look at this green suit with ivory waistcoat and you can see how the cut is very similar to that of the K-Pop version above.
But y’all never thought I’d blog K-Pop here did you?
