The third and last collection of the ‘Wolf’ MV was the most colourful out of the three, which EXO wore for their individual close-up shots and the beautifully executed ‘Silhouette’ dance, narrowly reminds of warriors ready for combat! Indeed, the concept of this collection is very much combat sports inspired, with a focus on boxing or muay thai, which closely relates to the ‘Sports – Gym Class’ section found in EXO’s ‘XOXO’ album jackets.
Team EXO ready for battle!
The dark lighting and setting of the MV do not do much justice to properly visualise the styling. Luckily, EXO finally wore the outfits for one of their performances at KBS Inkigayo, showing the full styling in bright light. The outfits consist of hoodies, low crotch flame printed shorts, oversized pattern tops, leggings and prop accessories such as braided headbands, boxing gloves, muay thai hand wraps and even a championship belt are incorporated to create the total combat sport looks. Presumedly inspired by the robe boxer athletes wear before a match, the highlight piece was without a doubt the plastic ponchos. Layering of this sheer material, worn in different colours, added a uniqueness to the overall collection!
Let’s breakdown the style of each EXO member:
Kai’s look was certainly the most striking: black and white poncho worn with a champion belt, which is in fact a waist bag from KTZ, and punching gloves. The style point of his styling was his corn-rows braided hair and bandanna.
Lu Han is wearing a sleeveless distressed neon and grey hoodie over an animal print top from Topshop’s collaboration with designer Christopher Kane, worn with matching orange and blue sneakers and vermillion coloured muay thai hand wraps.

Baek Hyun’s styling was pretty much inspired by ethnic warriors. Wearing a KTZ Maasai beaded print top, his braided headband accentuated his warrior look.

D.O. is wearing a simple dark hoodie underneath a sheer white poncho, accessorised with a statement necklace and stud earrings. Sweatpants and shorts create a layered sportswear look. The point of his styling is the grey snakeskin print which matches with the cracked cement pattern of the sneakers.
