YG Entertainment boy band WINNER starred in the aptly named photoshoot "The Winner Takes It All" for the February issue of W Korea.

The five idols tried their best modeling poses in solo closeups while wearing designer items by brands like Prada and Maison Margiela.

Among the standout wardrobe pieces there was a Saint Laurent black leather jacket worn by Taehyun. The item has a notch collar and fringe decorating the bodice and sleeves. It can be yours HERE and can be seen below.

During the interview, the group discussed their long hiatus from the South Korean music industry. Since releasing their debut album 2014 S/S two years ago, the members have been busy with solo activities and Japanese promotions.

"During our long hiatus with other promotions, in order to fill what was lacking, I studied a lot." Taehyun revealed. "I thought that since we're a group that creates songs and produces, we should know a variety of music. We looked for different genres of music, also I learned how to play guitar, so I'm very into blues music."

WINNER will be making their long-awaited comeback on Feb. 1. Reportedly, they will return to the music scene with a new EP and three music videos!
