It’s officially sunglasses season, and Fendi has come through with the goods: the brand has collaborated with Korean eyewear company Gentle Monster for a new capsule collection, manufactured and distributed by Salifo.
Featuring six different styles – from cat eye to classic aviator silhouettes – the unisex range combines Fendi’s dedication to craftsmanship with Gentle Monster’s futuristic, innovative aesthetic. The Gentle Fendi No. 1 part of the collection channels the tiny shades trend and are marked with a bright Fendi logo, while Gentle Fendi No.2 are crafted from metal for a versatile, flattering and easy-to-wear shape.
To celebrate the launch of the collaboration this month, the brands teamed up with Russian art collective AES+F to create a short film. Reflecting its mix of futuristic and traditional themes, it sees the collection catapulted into a surreal, cyberpunk universe where classical architecture and hyper-modern geometric structures collide.
