The latest fashion house to hop on the bandwagon of collaborating with trendy and stylish millennial personalities is FENDI for the FENDI For Young Bae capsule collection, featuring the recognisable style of the K-Pop darling Tae Yang.
The capsule collection is an extension of the FENDI Fall/Winter 2017 menswear collection, playing off the FENDI vocabulary of simple and common words that have helped the brand through difficult moments: Think, Faith, Grace, Saved, Truth and Passion. These words are depicted on Tae Yang’s favourite shade of black, conveying the rich detailing seen often on FENDI’s highly prize craftsmanship in a subtle way – a styling philosophy that hinges on innovation and coolness.
The comprehensive collection comprises of jackets in black shearling and rubberised slogans, and T-shirts with daisy (Tae Yang’s favourite flower) and slogans handpicked by Tae Yang as key motifs. Sneakers come in all-black and all-white designs with “Young Bae” embossed details on the rubber heel patch, while special interchangeable key charms complement the collection, available in rubber motifs with his favourite slogan and handwritten “Young Bae” on both sides.
Bag accessories include backpacks that are available in two designs: one made from shearling with an exquisite daisy graphic enabled by FENDI’s renowned in-lay technique, whereas the other carries the prominent “Faith” slogan on the front of the calfskin bag with a daisy applique decorating the upper closure. Besides that, pouches are available in black calfskin with yellow slogan and red trim, and red shearling with an in-layed “Grace” motif.
The FENDI For Young Bae collection is now available for pre-order online, and will be available in Hong Kong on 27 July, in conjunction with the re-opening of the FENDI Men’s boutique at Landmark.
