Creating history, two of the biggest fashion houses have come together for a collaborative collection that celebrates the signature styles of two iconic brands - Fendi and Versace. While some ideas are borrowed from Fendi, others are taken from Versace.
Bold styles and statement colours bring to the forefront a collective vision of Kim and Donatella that retains both the brands’ classic design cues. Vibrant, fun and kitsch, the collection unfolds with the Versace concept of more is more and champions colours like black and yellow, pastel pink and pristine white. Borrowing from Fendi, styles like the Fendace Peekaboo and Baguette combine the iconic Fendi bags' silhouettes with Versace signature prints. Speaking on the collaboration Donatella Versace, Chief Creative Officer Versace shared, “The campaign captures the same sense of friendship and energy we had when we were designing the collection. Kim is a visionary designer and innovator. To me, Fendace will always mean love.”
Fendace, is an exchange of roles and brand codes rather than a collaboration. “It’s a swap rather than a collaboration and, most of all, it is done out of friendship. It is the beauty of togetherness after time apart and a celebration of women who have inspired me so much, ” shared Kim Jones, Artistic Director Fendi Couture and Womenswear.
From dresses to separates, bags to belts and a few athleisure pieces, the collection celebrates elegance, style and panache. Reimagined Peekaboo bags to chunky sneakers, elegant hells, oversized hoodies, flowy silhouettes, and body-hugging dresses -- it's the perfect summer collection.
The collection launched globally on May 12, 2022, and is available online and in stores. The swap between the two brands will be presented at both Fendi and Versace online and retail boutiques in separate collections. Select ‘Versace by Fendi’ items will be sold by Fendi and vice versa. A collection of the Fendace co-branded looks will be available for sale from both fashion houses.
