Fendi has done it again.
The Fendi Spring/Summer’19 collection saw a collaboration with the artist Nico Vascellari which resulted in a playful, easy-to-wear wardrobe. This collection has been anagrammed to make opposites collide – fiend like a little demon, yet as aficionado, just like Yin and Yang. You can see small illustrations of demons, FF forked snakes, cards and dice throughout the collection. While playing with the opposites, Fendi has designed what looks like leather to be paper, and leather now as a papery feel. There is also the trademark FENDI graphic play, where we can see dualism as the trait of the Fendi DNA. Incorporated together with this collection is the functionality of accessorizing, when Nico Vascellari made it a point to make the walk around Rome much easier with bucket hats, running sandals and whatnot.
Our very own Benjamin Kheng who was also in attendance, scored a pass to hang out with the Creative Director, Silvia Fendi and the man behind the Fendi’s eyewear, Jamie Campbell Bower backstage. This whole collection serves to be a balance of both darkness and the light, within the Fendi territory.
