Fashion has always been perceived differently in all cultures and countries and perhaps there is yet to be a universal "cool" for both fashion houses and their customers/clients.
We may get outrageous icons like zsa zsa gabor, lady gaga, michael jackson, madonna, pink etc but never have they been universally acknowledged as cool but it seems North Korea may be the first country to sort this lack of recognition out, thanks to their dictator Kim Jong "ILL" (pardon my urban talk)
The TIME website which previously awarded him the 2nd worst dressed world leader better sit back and take notice as the communist newspaper Rodong Sinmun said his modest suits have been causing a fashion furore worldwide. "The reason is that the august image of the Great General, who is always wearing the modest suit while working, leaves a deep impression on people's mind in the world," it said.
A mystery French designer was said to have also claimed "Kim Jong-Il mode which is now spreading expeditiously worldwide is something unprecedented in the world's history.
Well it seems all eyes shall clearly be on designers at the next installation of Fashion week's all over the world to recapture that dashing grey zip up couture wear and who knows throw on those 5 inch platform shoes he wears and gangsta shades for the full "IL MODE" effect. "IL MODE" may not be your thing yet but if you're one of the lucky few to be invited into NK, please make sure you invest in one of the finest you can lay hands on.
