Sunmi Evokes Vintage Glamour In New Concept Photos For Mini-Album “1/6”
Sunmi teases a return to the past in retro concept images for her upcoming mini-album, 1/6.
The solo queen Sunmi will make her return this August with a brand new mini-album called, 1/6. In recently released concept images, the artist teases a “high-teen” concept. The term refers to an emerging trend that celebrates more retro concepts in relation to the youth culture of the 1990s and 2000s.
The concept is a complete contrast to Sunmi’s previous release, Tail. Her last project was a sultry, edgy affair where the artist embodied a villainous feline role. In comparison, 1/6 is shaping to be equally flirty, but a much brighter release.
The most recent images display Sunmi standing against a background reminiscent of a Hollywood boulevard. The artist boasts newly bleached hair and a bubblegum pink headband and dress. The photos add an element of playful whimsy as Sunmi stands amidst a cloud of bubbles.
The “teen high” concept remains consistent across all concept images thus far. In other photos, Sunmi wears a mixture of pastels and fluorescent tops and cardigans. Additionally, the artist wears accessories reminding fans of popular ’90s fashion trends, including wristbands, headbands, large clips, chunky rings, and beaded accessories.
