The proceeds of the bags will go to a charity of their choice. Rihanna has chosen her Clara Lionel Foundation. The organization just saw its first annual Diamond Ball. Executive Beccari revealed that this project is no mere stamp on the brands covet bag, but a very personal project. He revealed, “They had free rein, choosing their favorite colors, favoring their own personal tastes”.
He also noted that each of these women are very diverse and excellent in their fields. Choosing five different women to participate in this charitable effort is also symbolic to the Fendi brand. Beccari reflected on how he and creative director, Karl Lagerfeld are like brothers amongst the five Fendi sisters. This project is a celebration of femininity.
