Jaejoong in Dominic’s Way for I Mini-Album

The album jacket photos as well as the MV for the title track “Mine” have an artsy, gothic feel that was immediately reminiscent of the Korean fashion label Dominic’s Way. The brand’s clothing is often times dark, with leather goods like jackets and trousers featuring heavily. Dominic’s Way has also built strong relations among K-pop artists like B.A.P., Teen Top and ss501. CN Blue‘s Jung Shin and SS501’s Park Jung Min have both walked the runway for the label. Jaejoong wore several Dominic’s Way pieces for I.

One of the teaser images released by C-JeS shows Jaejoong with a subtle rainbow of color in his perfectly tousled hair; a cropped leather jacket is worn over a black open-knit sweater. The item is a Collar Stud short rider jacket ($1298) from Dominic’s Way.

Another piece of the brand’s outerwear seen on Jaejoong was the Hand-Painted Leather jacket ($1486). This classic biker-style coat features various doodles in white paint on the black leather exterior.

The Spring/Summer 2013 collection of Dominic’s Way was filled with graphic prints in a tattoo motif; lighter fabrics and colors were also prevalent.  Jaejoong wore a white trench with black print from this collection.

In the opening scenes of the “Mine” MV, Jaejoong walks among bare trees as snowflakes fall around him. He can be seen in a heavily distressed black sweater embellished with haphazardly hung gunmetal chains. This same sweater was previously worn by SS501’s Park Jung Min, as part of the closing ensemble for the Fall 2012 Dominic’s Way show at Seoul Fashion Week.

All of the close-up shots in the album jacket gave Jaejoong a chance to show off one of the coolest fashion accessories around — Paperself Eyelashes! This brand of false eyelashes are unique because they feature intricate designs cut into paper that have a dramatic effect when applied; Jaejoong sports the Peacock ($19 $9) and Small Peach Blossom ($17) styles.
