And just like that, 2022 came bearing fabulous fashion moments; exciting award shows, fashion collaborations plus more. From high street collaboration Iris Apfel for H&M to Ganni x Juicy Couture, and the upcoming Adidas x Gucci collection. And to think it couldn’t get any better, here comes Fendace.
Freedom, Fun and Friendship Fendi and Versace come together to create a collection; that celebrates the legacy and symbols of both fashion houses. Signature silhouettes, expert craftsmanship, FF patterns and the iconic Medusa motifs are seamlessly combined in a showstopping selection of ready to wear and accessories. “It’s a swap rather than a collaboration and, most of all, it is done out of friendship,” says Kim Jones, Artistic Director Fendi Couture and Womenswear. “It is the beauty of togetherness after time apart and a celebration of women who have inspired me so much.”
This powerful creative collaboration between Donatella Versace, Silvia Venturini Fendi and Kim Jones; is one to shake up the industry and fans could not wait to get their hands on the collection. It was definitely a super model star studded show as previously shown at Milan Fashion Week last September and the wait is finally over. “The campaign captures the same sense of friendship and energy we had when we were designing the collection. Kim is a visionary designer and innovator. To me, Fendace will always mean love,” says Donatella Versace. See our favourite pieces from 2022’s most anticipated designer drop below.
