FENDI x Chaos is a whirlwind of accessory-tech splendour, from shearling-lined laptop covers to golden AirPod cases.
Launching as a pop-up today in Harrods, FENDI x Chaos’ AW21 capsule collection sees the esteemed Italian brand team up with London-based accessories duo Chaos, helmed by Charlotte Stockdale and Katie Lyall, for a series of high-tech jewellery pieces that offer a luxury (and mega cool) alternative to the everyday bracelet and necklace.
Born out of a mutual love for vintage cigarette cases, gold lighters and ornate evening clutches, these beauties were first unveiled at FENDI’s AW21 show in Milan back in February, aiming to bring a slice of old Hollywood glamour kicking and screaming into the 2020s by fusing tradition, innovation and the forward-thinking style synonymous with the Fendi name.
In a mix of resplendent gold, mauve-pink and yellow pastel, the pair’s designs fuse the Maison’s traditional leather wears into daring pouch bags, FENDI waist belts, zipper chain lanyards, cross-body appendages and jewel-like casings for your wireless headphones and smartwatches – we can just picture an AirPod obsessed Marilyn Monroe flashing these to the paparazzi.
But they didn’t just stop there – the collections many other fantasy items are not limited to a multifunctional gold and silver scrabble pen, which can be used on tablets, paper and as an earring, a four-piece metal shot glass set – for the ginger shot health-freak or the tequila-loving party girl, AND a shearling-lined laptop case. Leaving no stone unturned, the duo wanted to create something a capsule that was tongue in cheek and daringly customisable, we think it’s suffice to say they’ve done exactly that.
You can get your hands on these daring pieces at the FENDI Harrod’s pop-up starting from October 20th 2020, or on fendi.com.
