As tradition would have it, symbolism plays a pivotal role not only in Chinese New Year celebrations but in the details of the clothing one might choose to wear as well. For its exclusive Lunar New Year capsule collection, Italian luxury house Fendi pays homage to the colour red and the significance of flowers – chrysanthemums and peonies, to be exact – while ushering in the Year of the Ox. The result? A sophisticated, elegant and playful take on a few much-loved house classics in a colour palette that spans shades of red, pink, cream, white and gold.
The capsule's women's offerings span a variety of options when it comes to bags. While the house's iconic Peekaboo bag boasts a bold red leather finish complete with hints of pink lining, the ISeeU bag features a fun and unexpected splash of colour in its inner pocket. The Maison extends this playfulness to its FF logo for the Iconic Mini as well as for the ever-transformative Baguette which comes in its usual trio of sizes and embroidered detailing.
The collection also sees a playful-meets-intricate take on the Pico Baguette. Fashioned out of red beads, the micro bag – complete with pink and gold floral detailing – adds a touch of whimsy to the line-up. For those in the market for ready-to-wear pieces and other accessories, the capsule offers up a selection of items made out of luxurious and vivid silk floral-printed textiles. Think: hair accessories, face masks, delicate silk scarves and hair scrunchies.
There's something for the men too. Sporting a darker colourway of red and black, the men's range features a hype selection of mid-top sneakers, a backpack as well as a range of leather goods and accessories. For a closer look at the capsule's women's offerings, browse the gallery below.
