Ex Girls’ Generation member Jessica Jung was in Singapore recently to launch her fashion label Blanc & Eclare at multi-label boutique Salon by Surrender, which is the exclusive retailer in Southeast Asia for her ready-to-wear collection.

We met up with this talented multi-hyphenate for a quick chat, and it seems like she is enjoying her new found career since she officially parted ways with S.M. Entertainment earlier this month.

Dressed in an adorable navy t-shirt and flattering white ripped jeans from her own denim collection, this multi-hyphenate looked every bit the chic Korean superstar. Here are some interesting morsels we learnt about her:

#1 Her favourite cities are Paris and New York

Jung spoke about her role as a designer and revealed that she gets a lot of her inspiration from her travels. She named the sunglasses in her collection after the cities that she has been to, and told us that a pair of ‘Singapore’ sunnies is in the works!

#2 She never thought of herself as glamorous

When quizzed on when she feels the most glamorous, Jung coyly replied that she never really thought of herself as glamorous. (Oh girl, you are too humble!)

#3 Her style mantra is ‘less is more’

She likes to keep her style simple and classic and doesn’t like to overdo things. She prefers wearing understated apparel with a little bit of twist.  

#4 She would like Olivia Palermo to wear her collection

Her own style resonates with that of the always impeccable style star, Olivia Palermo, and she would be very happy if Palermo was seen in her denim.

#5 Her collection has her DNA in it

Jung admits to designing things that she wants to wear. She professed to be a lover of denim and that she started the denim label Blanc & Eclare because she wanted to share what she thinks of as the perfect Asian fit.

#6 Her sister Krystal, from f(x) helps her with her designs

When asked if a collaboration with her sister Krystal, from f(x) would be possible, she revealed that whenever she’s designing, her sister gives her plenty of tips and feedback on what she would like to wear and she takes these suggestions very seriously. Jung doesn’t rule out the possibility of a Blanc & Eclare x Krystal collection in the near future!
