Fendi’s new travel collection reinvents and reimagines the classic glamour and beauty of old-school Hollywood. Inspired by iconic Italian film star Silvana Mangano – the collection is the epitome of feminine grace and timeless elegance with practical and eye-catching pieces.
Born out of a close collaboration between the late actress’ daughter Veronica De Laurentis and Fendi’s current designer Silvia Venturini Fendi, the collection comprises of luxurious pieces including a fox fur wrap coat, a double-F emblazoned roll aboard, and several versions of the brand’s signature satchel handbag. The leather Silvana Mangano Boston bag is the first item that captivates with clean, cut shapes and subtle luxury – trademark for the company and sells for £2,190. The travel suitcases have a wonderful vintage appeal to them with natural elegance and sophistication. Reminiscent of a past long gone – they fully capture the allure of distant travel at a time when it was a memorable occasion and fit surprisingly well in modern context (price starts from £2,650).
The collection became available in April and can currently be purchased at any Fendi boutique as well as online at Net-a-porter.
Two items from the collection stand out with striking sense of beauty and style – the trench coat and gilet, priced at £1,960. With a generous fox fur lining enwrapping the neckline and figure-hugging shape, they are an absolute must-have in the wardrobe of the elegant, modern woman. Fendi is known for designing works-of-art that perfectly complement the delicate allure of the female nature and these fashionable pieces are a perfect continuation to their trademark tradition.
Fashionistas will be pleased with the introduction of several new models of the beloved Boston bag in a variety of exotic skins and bold colours. The classic shape of the iconic piece has been retained with subtle, albeit eye-catching, variations in new fashion homage. Prices for the bags start at £2,250.
