This summer is definitely going to be a hot girl summer for street stylers with the unleashing of the FENDI Summer 2021 Capsule featuring FF Vertigo. If you don’t have one of these iconic bags now is the time to get one. Sarah Coleman puts her spin on the classic bag with psychedelic patterns and shimmering sequins a must-have for outdoors this summer to match your favourite pair of sneakers.
THE FF VERTIGO SUMMER 2021 CAPSULE COLLECTION HAS DROPPED FENDI
Fendi is listening to consumers who love luxury streetwear with this latest summer 2021 capsule collection. “Happy, colourful, desirable,” are three words to describe this artistic re-imagining of this unisex line. Who can see how fun this collection is in the video above. You know this will be placed in more than one music video. I wonder what pieces Nicki Minaj already has?
Fendi’s capsule collection is all-in-all a celebration of summer. Camping trips, rock climbing, a candy-coloured palate, and patterns that will give you rave and sleep at a festival vibes.
FENDI SUMMER 2021 X Sarah Coleman CAPSULE DROP
New York-based visual artist Sarah Coleman, known for her “disruptive manipulation of designers’ materials,” was specifically tapped to give her expertise to the collaboration. With the same outlook on repurposing and handcraft, Coleman and Fendi Accessories and Menswear Artistic Director Silvia Venturini Fendi worked together to give the fashion house a reinterpretation of the classic FF logo. The collections scream Asian street style looks to me!
FENDI X Sarah Coleman
What resulted was a ’70s-inspired psychedelic creation known as the FF Vertigo. This new magnetic motif offered a twisted, turned version of the classic FF pattern along with a hefty dose of nostalgia. Wavy manipulations of the logo in vibrant yellow and blue tones popped up throughout the capsule-like in the Peekaboo X-Tote and the Baguette 1997 which feature the warped FF Fisheye.
Like two kids in a candy shop, the limits of creativity for this capsule had no limits. The Peekaboo ISeeU style, for instance, crafted from an FF logo padded Nappa leather is treated to be (drumroll, please) glow in the dark. Other pieces from the accessories range have equally vibrant techniques.
The yellow FF Vertigo on the Peekaboo bag is printed through an inkjet technology on the mineral tanned leather. The same Vertigo pattern, in yellow or blue variations, is also printed on cool and resistant coated canvas and the FENDI Mini Sunshine Shopper is made up of colour-popping straw.
Freedom and adventure were the main inspirations for this outdoor lifestyle-esque summer capsule. For the women’s Ready-to-wear line; multi-pocket skirts, transformable jackets, and cargo pants are mixed with hyper-feminine bodysuits and draped tops. Windbreakers, swimsuits, and fluid pants also are thrown into the mix, setting up any wearer to be the coolest looking hiker.
For the men, this same “effortless elegance and contemporary functionality” easily finds its way into bowling shirts, Bermuda pants, and cool (yes cool) fisherman’s vests.
While this 2021 capsule is amazing on its own, throw in their collection of limited-edition items and it manages to impress even themselves. With the psychedelic motif at the centre of this line as well, outdoor accessories are re-vamped to be the coolest and grooviest of sidekicks. An FF Vertigo polaroid camera combines the iconic vintage Polaroid 636 with Fendi DNA. A fun and versatile bento box was made in collaboration with Alessi — along with a camping equipment set, and a tent and men’s technical backpack was produced by specialist Ferrino.
