FENDI LIFE - BETWEEN THE CITY AND THE SUBURBS IN THE NEW FENDI FW 2024-25 COLLECTION
The FENDI Fall/Winter 2024-25 men's collection, created by Accessories and Menswear Art Director Silvia Venturini-Fendi, tells the story of noble outdoor activities that convey the luxury of the city. A constant dialogue between tradition and technology in men's wardrobe, born of necessity and taking on the nuances of Roman decadence. From the FENDI studio to the whole world.
The spirit of the Scottish kilt that permeates the entire collection is represented by long pleated shorts that can be worn with Wellington leather boots and hiking socks, checkered shorts with a flat front or classic trousers with fixed pleats on each leg. Wide silhouettes of outerwear with raglan shoulders and flat leather buttons are complemented by leather collars, decorated with Selleria stitching and contrasting corduroy inserts made of corduroy suede. Fishing coats and waterproof jackets made of waxed FF canvas, and next to them are luxurious bombers and peacoats with shaved sheepskin trim and seams. Knitted items with color blocks add playful accents to the look.
In line with the House's initiative of progressive partnerships that combine fashion and architecture, two designs were presented at the FENDI fall/winter 2024-25 men's collection. Created in discussions with Ma Yansong/MAD Architects, an architectural studio with offices in Beijing, Los Angeles and Rome, they express the season's call for a futuristic connection between man and nature. Under the creative direction of Silvia Venturini-Fendi and Yansong MAD founding partner Ma, the Peekaboo ISeeU bag is deconstructed with lacquered aluminum contours on the front and handle, referencing MAD's organic, fluid architectural style. The futuristic slip-on sneakers showcase an organic molded sole and upper with two-tone bubble details and metallic accents. The low, flat profile creates an ergonomic alternative to the season's overturned classic.
In continuation of FENDI's activities in the field of music and technology, the FENDI x DEVIALET Mania portable speaker was also presented at the Fall/Winter 2024-25 men's collection show. The ultra-modern 360° stereo speaker is enclosed in a technical FF case in brown and tobacco with gold or gray and black with silver.
