Big Bang’s Taeyang Joins Forces With Fendi For Upcoming Capsule Collection

K-pop Star Taeyang of Big Bang, South Korea’s famous boy group, becomes the latest addition to the singer-designer collaboration party. The 29-year-old born Dong Young-bae has partnered with Italian fashion house Fendi for an exclusive ‘Fendi for Young Bae’ capsule collection, launching on 27th July 2017 in Hong Kong simultaneously with the reopening of its men’s flagship at Landmark department store.

Bringing forth an array of jackets, T-shirts, hoodies, sneakers, backpacks, pouches and key charms, Creative Director Silvia Venturini Fendi and the Men’s studio merged the brand’s Fall/Winter 2017-18 Collection DNA with the artist’s signature icons such as daisy motif (the singer’s favourite flower) and statement slogans like “FAITH”, “GRACE”, “SAVED” and “PASSION”. Shearling jackets and bombers with rubberized accents are embroidered with visual grammar of Taeyang’s values and ethos, a translation of list of words of Fendi’s Vocabulary.

“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 favorite flower, and SAVED, GRACE, FAITH, THINK, TRUTH, PASSION are the words that inspire me the most”, added Taeyang. Utilizing Taeyang’s favourite hue, the lineup consists of black as a basic shade accentuated by rich detailing with understated appeal.
