If you know Joey Yung, you know she’s a sartorial queen who boasts a massive luxury handbag collection. She once took to an e-commerce platform to share her top picks: flaunting a trail of mini-sized bags from luxury frontrunners.

Yung switched to mini bags as she grew older, as she now only carries her essentials. Her collection comprised multiple Louis Vuitton minis – one of which was a gift from her friend Chung – two Hermès, multiple Diors and her personal favourite, the classic Jacquemus’ Le Chiquito. She owns some stunning pieces from Gucci as well.

Moreover, Yung is a Fendi girl and has collaborated with the brand multiple times. Did you know that she even partnered with Fendi to create a one-of-a-kind designer bag called the Fendi Peekaboo bag? The bag reportedly pays homage to her mother, whose name means ‘golden phoenix’ and that’s what the bag is decorated with.

The name of Joey’s mother was also engraved on a special metal tag inside the bag, to further celebrate the intimate bond between the two. The bag was later auctioned online and the proceeds from it were donated to the Hong Kong Cancer Fund. Her love for Fendi doesn’t end here. Did you know that Yung wore a Rome-inspired Fendi couture dress from the brand’s autumn/winter 2019 haute couture collection during her ‘Pretty Crazy’ concert tour that year?
