Throughout her career from leading 2NE1 to her solo artistry, CL — the badass “unnie” of K-pop — has worked with brands like Chrome Hearts, Moschino and Chanel, just to name a few. She is additionally famous for using her platform to spotlight up-and-coming designers, as she told Hypebae in our Spring 2022 cover story: “I’m a fan of wearing new designers and graduation pieces, and I love listening to new music all the time. I’ve done that my entire life and that’s never changed. But now, I have the opportunity to give back, and collaborate with and empower those artists.”
