Collaboration: Photographing the Fendi Pallazo Bag – ‘Design in Detail’ (2006)

My first “creative collaboration was with Fendi, Malaysia.  I am thankful for Natasha Kraal, Editor in-Chief for Harpers Bazaar Malaysia for introducing me to Clara Goh, Fendi, Marketing Director, Fendi Southeast Asia.

OBJECTS OF DESIRE – A photography showcase of The FENDI PALAZZO BAG through the lens of Malaysian celebrities

“TO INTERPRET THE PALAZZO BAG – TO EMOTE, DESIGN IN DETAIL – THE OBJECT OF MY DESIRE IS IN ITS DETAIL! I WANT PEOPLE TO FALL IN LOVE WITH THE FENDI PALAZZO BAG AS I HAVE. THE CLASSIC BUCKET DESIGN UPDATED AND EDGY WITH THE USE OF CONTRASTING TEXTURES AND MATERIALS – METALLIC RUBBER STAMPED ON TO LEATHER, ONYX ACRYLIC CRYSTALS AGAINST PATENT LEATHER AND GOLD, SOFT CALF SKIN CONTRASTED AGAINST HARD LEATHER. THE LATTER BEING THE FOCUS FOR MY SERIES.

‘DESIGN IN DETAIL’ SEEKS TO BRING FOCUS TO THE DESIGN AESTHETICS OF THE PALAZZO BAG SEEN IN ISOLATION THROUGH MY EYES. APPRECIATE ITS FACETED PERSONALITY; ITS QUIET ELEGANCE ITS BOLDNESS. LOOK CLOSER… GET LOST IN IT… DESIRE IT”
