This entire series of photos made me laugh. Not at Yoo Seung Ho, mind you, who I adore to bits and can do no wrong. But rather at the brain trust behind the uniform brand Customellow, who plucked the age-appropriate Yoo Seung Ho to model its line of school uniforms, alternatively turning him into Harry Potter meets Prince William circa the Eton years and an emo-cigarello smoking poet boy type.
If you ask any school boy worth his fashion sense, he would NOT want to don any of these outfits. But his mummy, on the other hand, may be blinded by the bucket-worthy prettiness of Yoo Seung Ho and force sonny boy to emulate this air of British prep boy at daddy’s London club vibe. Suffice to say, I really enjoyed these pictures from the disconnect factor.
