See what the musician (also known as Young Bae to fans) has to say about his ready-to-wear mash-up with Fendi, and find out where you can score yourself a piece before they disappear from shelves

What was your earliest memory of Fendi?
Fendi was "untouchable". I used to feel some distance from what Fendi was when I was younger because it was in a place that was hard to reach. I was first introduced to the house through one of my fashion muses and someone I look up to. He was wearing a multi "F" logo belt; I thought it was the coolest thing! Though at the time, I was too young to be able to buy my own.

How does it feel to be the first Asian artist to collaborate with Fendi for a capsule collection?
Something like this never crossed my mind, but I'm really glad I can work on this project together with Fendi and share this capsule collection, so it's a blessing.

Silvia Venturini Fendi and Tae Yang

What was it like to meet Silvia Venturini Fendi in Milan during fashion week?
It was my first visit to Milan, and it was one of the most memorable trips in my life. I felt the fully energy of Milan through pizza and gelato. Meeting Silvia was simply a treat. She worked hard to listen to my creative ideas and made me feel like we were in this project together.

What has been your biggest challenge in designing this collection?
We had to collaborate with everyone in different countries, so it was a bit of a challenge communicating and making sure we were all on the same page.

What do music and fashion mean to you?
I think part of the visual representation of my music is fashion, hence I don't think the two are very different — they must go together in a parallel.
