Congratulations to Kai !!

GUCCI’s global ambassador EXO Kai hits another milestone by becoming 1st Korean celebrity to launch a capsule collection with the brand.

In an exclusive interview with the magazine Esquire Korea, Kai expressed the inspiration behind his collection and his reaction to having a collection named after himself.

Kai explained that the focal point of his collection is the adorable bears “drawn here and there.” He said, “The ‘Kai Capsule Collection’ is a collection of bears, my favorite animal. GUCCI is a high-end brand, and it doesn’t feel like it’s lightly worn. But with this cute bear, I made it feel more casual than the original GUCCI. Bears are drawn here and there, so I think I can wear them more cutely. People of all ages can wear it on a daily basis.”

When asked why he chose a bear out of all things, he said “My fans gave me the nickname because I move slowly, like a bear. At first, I thought, ‘I’m not a bear.’ But then, I started using more bear-character things. I got more gifts with bear pictures on them. That’s how I came to like bears, too! It became something that symbolizes me—a connection between me and my fans…And it just so happens that I do have a lot of things in common with bears. (Laughs)”

Another reason why bears are especially meaningful to him is because it deepened his connection with EXO-Ls and made him understand himself more: “It was also a symbol of me and a signal between my fans and me. Come to think of it, I had a lot of bear-like sides.”

Esquire praised Kai for being GUCCI’s Global Ambassador for two years and counting, and they asked him how he felt to have a collection under his name.

Kai responded, “This is the first time GUCCI has launched a collection in collaboration with a Korean celebrity. I’m grateful and I’m excited. It’s not easy to have a collection dedicated to my name. It’s such an honor and a great opportunity. I’m simply exhilarated that it’s all happening to me.”

Upon hearing the news, fans couldn’t hold back their excitement and expressed their aww through Twitter!!

Even W Korea celebrated the launch of his capsule collection by stationing huge bears all over Seoul.
