Core of K-style

Formed in 2009, 2NE1 became the first Korean girl group to go on a world tour.

With more than 40 music award show wins, the four-member group is still going strong. Their latest album, Crush, broke the record for highest-charting K-pop album on the US Billboard album charts.

The group is now on its 2014 All Or Nothing World Tour.

They have also been blazing a unique style in clothing. So whether you are a CL, Minzy, Dara or Bom, you can get the look with these eye-catching prints and bold accessories.
