The world of K-pop comes along with a plethora of merchandise choices so that you can essentially live and breathe your favorite idols. From light sticks, shirts, hoodies, towels, bags to phone cases; K-pop merchandise allow fans to proudly flaunt their love. However, sometimes fans decide to opt for more discreet ways of supporting their favourite idols. Represent is an online clothing store that often collaborates with K-pop idols on limited edition clothing lines. Their limited edition apparel offers a large variety of items, sometimes even including accessories such as bags and pop sockets, allowing fans to fashionably and discreetly support their favorite idols!
XCIII Evolution – Mark Tuan x Represent
Mark from GOT7’s collection with Represent was first released in 2018, featuring a ‘XCIII’ or ‘93’ logo (the year he was born) on various clothing items and accessories, and it’s no wonder why it was such a huge hit amongst ahgases. His collection was so popular that a second collection was released in March 2019. The XCIII Evolution collection consisted of products such as hoodies, t-shirts, jackets, hats, speakers, waist bags, popsockets, beanies, socks, blankets, sweatpants, tank tops, tote bags, water bottles and phone cases of a predominantly red, black and white colour story.
doubleB – Bambam x Represent
Another GOT7 member, BamBam also released a collection in 2017 with Represent called double B, which aimed to support water.org and their fight against the water crisis. His collection featured a red flower as the logo. BamBam’s collection included shirts, sweaters, hats, jackets and phone cases.
Millions – WINNER x Represent
WINNER released a collection with Represent in February 2019. Their limited edition collaboration with Represent was also featured in their North American ‘Everywhere Tour,’ to tease their fans and offer a glimpse into what was about to be released. The Millions was quite an elaborate clothing collection, including shirts, hoodies, long sleeve tees, tank tops, pants, cropped hoodies, jackets, hats and phone cases.
RE:MAX – Changmin x Represent
As of June 2019, Changmin from TVXQ’s collaboration with Represent is the most recent K-pop collaboration.
