VERSACE BY FENDI – FENDI BY VERSACE: The beauty of togetherness!

The coming together of Fendi and Versace, two iconic fashion houses, or more rightly, two iconoclastic groups of people, has led to this unique moment in fashion. Both a celebration of Italian fashion and a to-hell-with-it disruption of the established order of things, Fendace is Fashion with a capital F – and a capital V.  Together they stand for Freedom, Fun and Virtuosity.

Crossing the ‘party lines’ of luxury conglomerates – inspired purely by friendship and mutual professional respect – the double signature of Fendace is a swap, with roles exchanged. For the first time, Donatella Versace, and Silvia Venturini Fendi have stepped away from their respective family houses to be inspired by the other’s vision, while Kim Jones – by now an old hand at inhabiting and reinventing other peoples’ houses – points the way.

Here, Jones and Venturini-Fendi take on the design of women’s and menswear respectively, displaying their exceptional vision of Versace while Versace takes on the design of all, displaying her inimitable interpretation of Fendi. With the archives fully opened to both, a unique cross-fertilization occurs, with elements transposed from each house; at heart remains a deep admiration for the codes and cultures of both, together with a mutual encouragement for the designers to be themselves.  Needless to say, the results could only be achieved with fundamental respect and reciprocal trust. Ultimately, Fendace is about the need for sincerity in fashion today rather than strategy.

“It’s a first in the history of fashion: two designers having a true creative dialogue that stems from respect and friendship. It led to us swapping roles to create these two collections.”Donatella Versace

“Friends, idols, mentors… It’s the beauty of togetherness.”Kim Jones.

Versace by Fendi: Fendi by Versace: ¡La belleza de la unión!

La unión de Fendi y Versace es la unión de dos casas de moda icónicas, o mejor dicho, dos grupos de personas iconoclastas que han hecho posible este momento único en la moda.  Fendace es una celebración de la moda italiana, representando juntos libertad, diversión y virtuosismo.

Cruzando las líneas partidistas de los conglomerados de lujo e inspirados en la amistad y el respeto profesional mutuo, la doble firma “Fendace” es un intercambio, con roles intercambiados.

Por primera vez, Donatella Versace y Silvia Venturini-Fendi se han alejado de sus respectivas casas familiares para inspirarse en la visión del otro, mientras que Kim Jones, quien es todo un experto en habitar y reinventar las casas de otras personas, les señala el camino.

Aquí, Jones y Venturini-Fendi asumen el diseño de ropa de mujer y de hombre respectivamente, mostrándonos su visión excepcional de Versace, mientras que Versace asume el diseño de todos, mostrándonos su inimitable interpretación de Fendi. Con los archivos totalmente abiertos a ambos, se produce una fecundación cruzada única, con elementos transpuestos de cada casa; en el fondo permanece una profunda admiración por los códigos y culturas de ambos, junto con un estímulo mutuo para que los diseñadores sean ellos mismos. Debemos decir que los resultados solo se pueden lograr con respeto fundamental y confianza recíproca. En última instancia, Fendace se trata de la necesidad de sinceridad en la moda actual más que de estrategia.

“Es la primera vez en la historia de la moda que dos diseñadores tienen un verdadero diálogo creativo derivado del respeto y la amistad, llevándolos a intercambiar roles para crear estas dos colecciones”–Donatella Versace .

“Amigos, idolos, mentores…es la belleza de esta unión.”-Kim Jones.

Inspired by the mid-to-late nineties period of the storied house, VERSACE BY FENDI explores an idea of duality, most pointedly seen in a melding of the Fendi Monogram with the Versace Greek Key motif.  Here, garments metamorphose, many revealed to be reversible with hidden codes and the exquisite craftsmanship of the Fendi atelier on display, such as in chainmail made leather. Here a multigenerational approach is embraced throughout.

FENDI BY VERSACE takes a more punk rock stance with Donatella Versace declaring contamination and disruption to be key. Versace safety pins proliferate, puncturing Fendi signs and symbols. Chain mail is married with lace and crystal-encrusted F’s in an interpretation of the Monogram.  While silk faille mimics denim and shearlings are shaved, making the world of Fendi that little bit more youthfully rebellious.

The shows were dedicated to Kip Sims, a dear friend and colleague of Kim Jones and the house of Fendi.

Inspirado en el período de los noventa (a finales) de la historia de esta casa, VERSACE BY FENDI explora una idea de dualidad, que se ve más claramente en una fusión del monograma de Fendi con el motivo de la llave griega de Versace. Aquí, las prendas se metamorfosean, revelándose algunas como reversibles con códigos ocultos y la exquisita artesanía del taller de Fendi en exhibición; como por ejemplo, la cota de malla hecha de cuero–adoptando un enfoque multigeneracional.

FENDI BY VERSACE adopta una postura más punk-rock con Donatella Versace, declarando que la contaminación y la disrupción son la clave. Los imperdibles de Versace proliferan, perforando los signos y símbolos de Fendi. La cota de malla está casada con encaje y las efes (F) son incrustadas con cristales en una interpretación del monograma. Mientras que el faille de seda imita al denim y los borregos aparecen afeitados, haciendo que el mundo de Fendi sea un poco más juvenil y rebelde.

Los shows estuvieron dedicados a Kip Sims, un colega y amigo muy querido de Kim Jones y de la casa de Fendi.
