As a fashion powerhouse, FENDI has been known for their exquisite luxury fashion trends and timeless style since its start, in 1925. They continue to successfully execute style and edginess in the fashion industry. Here are a few of my picks from the Spring/Summer 2015 show.
Check out these sick sunglasses from their, Orchidea sunglass collection featuring the lovely Chlöe Howl . There is nothing I love more than a statement accessory to pull off a purely genuine exclamation point to the ensemble.
Leave it to FENDI to bring their innovated looks to the home with, FENDI Casa. Covering the Maison & Objet Americas show, as press for DigThisDesign, I was introduced to the work of Thierry Lemaire, renowned architect and designer who has collaborated with FENDI Casa, to create this unique furniture line.
As Lemaire puts it, “Fashion and design are two creative universes that are very close and it was challenging to create a world that would combine the values of both, enhancing them”.
“I have always looked at the image and prestige of this Maison with admiration and this is the reason why we have decided to use materials such as brass, fine woods, lacquer and leather conveying the sophistication and timeless elegance of FENDI Casa.”
“Thanks to the experiences collected in high-profile projects, we have translated the FENDI codes in a line of furniture.”
One of my favorites by Lemaire is the Fleurette coffee table. Although I am a fan of the geometric forms FENDI is often associated with, the natural curves of this table draw me in. It combines precious Ebony Macassar wood with the designer’s signature touch of metal.
Fendi Casa is part of Luxury Living Group. They carry other fabulous luxury brands like Bentley Home and Trussardi Casa, check them out!
I love attending design shows because I always come back home re-inspired after finding those cool design “gems”. I met some interesting designers with awesome work at Maison & Objet Americas, read more on Alicia Kossick‘s sustainable mission, Leo Capote transforming function, and Max Gunawan‘s unexpected Lumio Light. I’m so glad Maison & Objet was held in Miami, this gave me the perfect excuse to discover areas of the city that were new to me. This trip took me to Miami’s up & coming Wynwood arts district, a haven for graffiti artists.
