BTS Looks to Sustainable Fashion for Appearance at U.N. Headquarters

BTS Looks to Sustainable Fashion for Appearance at U.N. Headquarters. BTS, the world’s most popular K-pop boy band, returned to the United Nations on Monday to accompany President Moon Jae-in of South Korea ahead of the start of the 76th annual General Assembly, three years after making a stir at the UN Headquarters in New York City.

The president named the seven-member group, which includes RM, Jungkook, Jimin, Jin, Suga, J-Hope,, and V, as the United Nations’ Special Presidential Envoys for Future Generations and Culture for the Republic of Korea, to assist promote the COVID-19 vaccination.

RE; CODE, a sustainable label based in Korea, created unique suits for each member of BTS.

On its official Instagram account, the business stated, “This suit design strives to support sustainable fashion and it is specifically developed for BTS’ address at the United Nations.”

They also donned rainbow Swarovski crystal pins that represented the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.

The group, who claimed to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, spoke for seven minutes, emphasising the necessity of getting the vaccine and praising young people all around the world for their resiliency throughout the epidemic, claiming that they are not a “lost generation” as a result.

The group’s leader, RM, born Kim Nam-joon, remarked, “I’ve heard that kids in their teens                                                                and 20s today are being referred to as COVID’s lost generation.” “However, I think it’s a                                                          stretch to suggest they’re lost simply because the road they’re on isn’t visible to grown-up                                                              eyes.”

A better moniker for this generation would be the ‘welcome generation,’ since instead of                                                       dreading change, it says ‘welcome’ and keeps moving forward,” said Jin, who was born                                                               Kim Seok-jin.

The band created a video over the weekend in which they danced and sang their way around                                                            the United Nations Headquarters, performing their latest smash track “Permission to Dance,”                                                            the band’s third English-language single. Their first two singles, “Dynamite” and “Butter,”                                                                  became worldwide hits, setting the record for most views in a 24-hour period for a music                                                                  video on YouTube.

BTS then went on a tour of New York City, stopping at the Metropolitan Museum of Art,                                                                where RM gave another speech at an event honouring Korean artists.

Megan Thee Stallion, who recently collaborated with them on a remixed version of “Butter,”                                                        which was published a few weeks ago, was also there. On her Instagram account, the rapper                                                          posted selfies of herself and the band. She captioned it, “It’s Thee HotGirl Coach and BTS.”

BTS received over one million views during their appearance, which was broadcast on the                                                                  United Nations’ official YouTube account. Army, their enormous legions of followers, stormed                                                         the comments section right away.

BTS members have been highly immersed in the fashion scene in recent years, sporting                                                                names such as Gucci, Chanel, Prada,, and Balenciaga. The boy band was named as Louis                                                              Vuitton’s newest brand ambassador in April.

In a statement, Virgil Abloh, men’s artistic director at Vuitton, said, “I am happy BTS are                                                                  joining Louis Vuitton.” “I am looking forward to this fantastic collaboration, which will add a                                                      current chapter to the house by combining luxury and contemporary culture. I’m looking                                                                forward to sharing all of the amazing ideas we’re working on.”

“Becoming global brand ambassadors for Louis Vuitton is a genuinely thrilling occasion for                                                            us,” BTS said in a statement. We’re looking forward to working with Virgil Abloh on our next                                                              projects.”

The French fashion company published a short film in July promoting Virgil Abloh’s fall 2021                                                      collection, which featured all seven members of BTS.
