FENDI, the Italian luxury house, has caused a stir with the launch of the much-anticipated Summer 2023 Marc Jacobs capsule collection. This exciting range was initially unveiled at New York Fashion Week as part of the multi-collaboration Resort 2023 collection, where FENDI joined forces with renowned names such as Tiffany & Co., Sarah Jessica Parker, and Porter to co-design timeless classics. The Marc Jacobs portion of the collection is now available to the public, and fashion enthusiasts are thrilled.
The 25th anniversary of the iconic FENDI “Baguette” bag is celebrated in this collaborative range, with Marc Jacobs lending his creativity to develop new statement pieces using FENDI Roma’s house codes. Jacobs has seamlessly merged modern motifs of contemporary life with the turn-of-the-century silhouette, resulting in a collection of ready-to-wear pieces that pay homage to New York’s “Gilded Age.”
The collection’s colour palette is a play on fantasy and reality, featuring silvery, glittering, grey, white, fluoro yellow, and black hues. Oversized distressed denim jackets and pants are adorned with the all-over “FENDI ROMA” print, bringing the Italian luxury brand into the modern utilitarian style. Parachute pants with multiple pockets and baggy silhouettes are casually paired with cropped t-shirts and hoodies, while broken denim is realized with acid and enzyme washes and elongated to dramatic effect.
The iconic Baguette bag has been reimagined alongside the baguette hoodies, where the front pocket features the full dimensions of the Maxi Baguette bag. The multi-pocketed cargo pants and jacket feature the FF logo buckles in silver hardware, and accessories include the multiple Nano Baguette utility belt.
Jacobs has breathed new life into the iconic FENDI Roma logo, bringing the heritage luxury brand into the present. The FENDI by Marc Jacobs Summer 2023 capsule collection is set to be a massive hit, and fashion enthusiasts can look forward to snapping up these timeless pieces. The collection will be available online and in stores from May 11, so be sure to mark your calendars and get ready to add some FENDI x Marc Jacobs to your wardrobe.
