They've consistently won awards for best song and best album, and thanks to their latest world tour, BTS may also win awards for best dressed.

The South Korean boy band, made up of Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V and Jungkook, have been kitted out for the new leg of their stadium tour by luxury French fashion house, Dior.

The collaboration was revealed by Kim Jones, the artistic director of Dior's menswear division, who posted a sketch of his designs for the seven-piece on his Instagram account.

"Excited to announce the tour costumes for BTS," the British designer captioned the shot.

The sketch showed the band decked out in rather utilitarian separates, such as pocketed cargo trousers, belted ankle boots, harnesses, bomber jackets and buttoned-up shirts, giving a hint at the aesthetic of the just-launched tour.

"They all have their personal taste and style and it works so well together. Each member of the group chose the look they wanted, and we worked very organically to create each look for them," Jones added to WWD. "It was very collaborative."

The exclusive collection was also designed with Japanese illustrator Hajime Sorayama, according to Billboard.

The Love Yourself: Speak Yourself tour kicked off on May 4 in Los Angeles, and will take the Idol singers to Brazil, the UK, France and Japan, with more dates to be announced. The musical expedition follows the release of BTS' Map of the Soul: Persona EP.

The band have also been announced as the headliners for Good Morning America's GMA Summer Concert Series, and will kick off the weekly set of performances on May 15.
