Fendi’s Peekaboo Project is a charity auction that has seen participants including Zaha Hadid, Adele, and Gwyneth Paltrow. The project enlists local celebrities to design a bag inspired by Fendi’s iconic Peekaboo collection, which will be auctioned off to a charity of their choice. Fendi tapped Liu Wen, Guo Jingjing, Angelababy, Yang Lan, Liang Yuanwei and Tim Yip to participate in the China project.
Tim Yip’s design “Spring Flower Winter Snow” features a colour-changing LED screen inside a mink fur bag with crystals woven into its sides. The bag reflects the passage of time and the changing seasons.
The handbags went on display in the Red Gallery at Beijing’s Taikoo Li North luxury shopping district. Auction proceeds went to support Chinese charities for children, education, art and literature, and research.
