The Italian luxury house FENDI has officially unveiled its much-awaited capsule collection with Marc Jacobs for Summer 2023. The collection was first previewed at the FENDI Resort 2023 show in New York Fashion Week, which featured FENDI partnering with various brands and celebrities such as Tiffany & Co., Sarah Jessica Parker, and Porter to co-create new versions of its iconic classics. The main inspiration for the collaboration was the 25th anniversary of the FENDI Baguette bag, one of the most coveted accessories in fashion history.
Marc Jacobs, who is known for his eclectic and playful style, has put his own spin on the FENDI Roma house codes, creating new statement pieces that blend contemporary motifs with turn-of-the-century silhouettes. The collection draws inspiration from New York’s “Gilded Age”, with its lavish and extravagant aesthetics. The color palette is dominated by silver, glitter, grey, white, fluoro yellow, and black, creating a contrast between light and dark.
The collection features a range of ready-to-wear pieces that mix casual and formal elements, such as oversized denim jackets and pants with all-over “FENDI ROMA” prints, baggy parachute pants with multiple pockets, cropped t-shirts and hoodies, and distressed denim with acid and enzyme washes. The silhouettes are exaggerated and dramatic, giving a sense of movement and fluidity. The collection also includes accessories that complement the clothing, such as the Baguette bag reimagined in various sizes and shapes, the baguette hoodie with a front pocket that mimics the Maxi Baguette bag, the multi-pocketed cargo pants and jacket with silver FF logo buckles, and the Nano Baguette utility belt that can hold multiple mini bags.
The capsule collection showcases Jacobs’ reinterpretation of the FENDI Roma logo. The logo appears on various items, such as the t-shirts, hoodies, jackets, pants and bags, creating a cohesive and recognizable identity for the collection. The logo also serves as a symbol of the collaboration between two influential fashion houses that share a passion for creativity and innovation.
The FENDI by Marc Jacobs Summer 2023 capsule collection is now available online and in-stores. The collection is a must-have for fans of both brands, as well as for those who appreciate unique and original designs that challenge the boundaries of fashion.
