FENDI Taps Korean Superstar Taeyang for a Capsule Collection
Plus: Daisy details.
Taeyang of South Korean pop group Big Bang is no stranger to international Fashion Weeks, constantly appearing in eye-catching outfits. But here, he makes his mark as a designer by collaborating with Italian brand Fendi. The 29-year old has partnered with Creative Director Silvia Venturini Fendi and the Men’s Studio to design a capsule collection “FENDI For Young Bae” where you can find jackets, tee, backpacks, pouches, sneakers and key charms.
“Words like THINK, FAITH, GRACE, compose the FENDI VOCABULARY: very simple and common words that yet in their simplicity have a very important meaning that is going to be forever and that can help us in difficult moments”, states Silvia Venturini Fendi in regards to the Men’s Autumn Winter 2017 collection. “I’m really glad I can work on this project together with Fendi and share this capsule collection, I think it’s a blessing. The daisy is my favourite flower, and SAVED, GRACE, FAITH, THINK, TRUTH, PASSION are the words that inspire me the most” says Tae Yang.
The capsule collection will be launched in Singapore on 1 September 2017, sold exclusively at the FENDI Marina Bay Sands Store, and will be available for pre-order on FENDI’s website starting end of July.
