Fendi Men’s Spring/Summer 2022 Fashion Show
An ode to the Roman landscape, to the eternal beauty of its nature and architecture. Day fades into night as the models twist and turn, mapping the contours of the Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana as the building gradually comes to life in a spectacular, pulsing light show, reminiscent of the tropes of early science fiction cinema. The soundtrack by Italian composer Alessandro Cortini is a bespoke electronic composition featuring synthesiser tracks inspired by interstellar travel.
"As creative director of accessories, menswear and children at Fendi, Silvia Venturini Fendi is the only family member still working at the historic Italian business, where she was responsible for the creation of the iconic Baguette bag. Along with her mother and four sisters, Fendi inherited the furrier and leather goods company founded by her grandparents Edoardo and Adele in 1925. In 1965, when she was five years old, Karl Lagerfeld was appointed Fendi's artistic director — a role he held until his passing on February 19, 2019, and the longest collaboration between a fashion house and a designer in fashion history." -Business of Fashion
