To celebrate the launch, the multihyphenate star and Calvin Klein hosted a party in Seoul. Ahead, get an exclusive inside glimpse at the fabulous night. 

The Party 

The event took place at Scėne Seoul (Scène 쎈느)  in Seongsu-dong, one of the city’s hottest spots in the creative scene. The place was redesigned to mirror the color palette of “Jennie for Calvin Klein.” Additionally, the venue featured conceptual light installations by the Japanese graphic artist and art director Yoshirotten

Showing up and showing out, Jennie delivered a memorable look for the occasion. Dressed in a lilac knit mini dress  — one of the most coveted items of the capsule collection — the “Solo” singer turned all eyes on her upon her arrival. Jennie paired the look with platform pumps of matching color and joined the hair bow trend by adding little ribbons to a single side braid.
