Who doesn’t love a dynamic duo? Batman and Robin, Barbie and Ken, and now, Fendi and Versace. Two luxury fashion houses joining forces may sound like a pipe dream, but we promise you’re wide awake. Fendi and Versace have made fashion history by swapping roles to create Fendace.
Here’s what you need to know about this monumental swap:
Versace and Fendi have pulled a true sartorial swap. Kim Jones, Artistic Director Fendi Couture and Womenswear, and Donatella Versace, Versace Chief Creative Officer, didn’t just team up for a traditional swap. The two fashion mavens decided to fully swap roles and brand codes. Jones and Silvia Venturini Fendi brought their perspective to Versace, and Donatella reimagined Fendi through her own lens.
What to expect in a Versace x Fendi mashup? We hope bold colors, loud prints, and logomania are on your bingo card. Versace’s “more is more” way of life comes together in Fendi’s innovative approach to accessories and craftsmanship.
True brand devotees will see the heritage of each brand woven through their respective designs. Some pieces to look forward to including Fendace Peekaboo and Baguette bags, which combine Fendi’s famous silhouettes with Versace’s bold stylings. The Fendace La Medusa handbag, which cleverly meshes Fendi’s logo with Versace’s Medusa, is another statement maker to add to your radar.
What inspired this iconic collaboration for the ages? Pure friendship. “It is the beauty of togetherness after time apart and a celebration of women who have inspired me so much,” explains Jones in a statement. Donatella’s respect for Jones resonates throughout the partnership. “To me, Fendace will always mean love,” she remarks.
The long-awaited Versace by Fendi collection launches on May 12. Find the collection’s handbags and accessories at Aventura Mall’s Fendi boutique. Plus, a capsule of joint Fendace branded looks is available from both fashion houses. Be sure to snag a limited-edition piece of a line that will live on in fashion history.
