Fendi appointed rapper and producer Zico as its Korean ambassador, the Italian fashion house said Wednesday.
 
Fendi revealed photos from its 2022 S/S Capsule Collection in which Zico dons a white denim look while carrying Fendi’s signature Peekaboo and Baguette bags, both in black.
 
Zico, whose real name is Woo Ji-ho, debuted in 2011 as a member of boy band Block B. The septet saw commercial success with songs “NalinA” (2012), “Jackpot” (2014) and “HER” (2014).
 
Zico has seen popularity as both a K-pop and hip-hop artist. He is also part of the hip-hop crew Fanxy Child, which consists of artists Dean, Crush, Penomeco, millic and Stay Tuned.

He has produced songs for other K-pop acts, like Mino of Winner, Kim Se-jeong (an ex-member of now-disbanded IZ*ONE), Penomeco and Wanna One.  
 
His hit songs as a solo artist include “Any Song” (2020), which went viral on TikTok for its dance challenge.
 
Zico was discharged from his mandatory military service on April 29.
