After the collaboration between Gucci and Balenciaga to celebrate the 100 years of the Italian fashion house, two other houses are embarking on a breathtaking collaboration.
The new collaboration in the luxury industry is surely one of the most iconic of all time.
Italian fashion houses Fendi and Versace have come together in a collection linking the elegance of Fendi and the craftsmanship of Versace to celebrate women and friendship. Indeed, the rumors have been confirmed.
This is not the first time that the two houses have worked together, a collection had already appeared in 2021 during Italian fashion week. It was presented during a parade during this famous week.
The collection titled Fendace was released on May 12, 2022. It will be presented as “Fendi by Versace” in Versace stores and as “Versace by Fendi” in Fendi stores.
But it is not yet available on the market or very little. To discover it and hope to acquire a piece from this collection, you will have to go to pop UP stores or world events such as fashion week. It will then be put on sale on the internet and will be available from the stores of the two houses.
The collection will mix the two styles of the houses in order to satisfy all customers who are fans of the two brands in search of novelty and freshness.
The collection includes bags, shoes, jackets as well as bags. As well as the famous Versace cups that the brand offered to the celebrities it dressed for the Met Gala.
These have been revisited with the name of the Fendi brand which replaces the name of the Versace brand.
The price range:
The price range of the “Versace by FENDI” collection varies from €140 for a pair of logo socks, €550 for a t-shirt or €490 for a hat, to €3,200 for a silk bomber jacket or 1 €550 for a cotton jacket.
As for the “FENDI by Versace” collection, prices range from €140 for a pair of logo socks to €1,990 for a quilted jacket with baroque motifs, including bucket hats at €490 or €550 for a t-shirt..
However, it remains very high-end in order to keep the prestige and elegance that the two brands represent so well.
Friendship more than work
This collaboration was made in all friendship and for the first time the artistic directors took the place of the other, imagining the ultimate collection.
