“It’s about a balance of decoration and  simplicity,” Silvia Venturini Fendi says

The vocabulary of Silvia Venturini Fendi’s designs for men are built on a constant play of contrasts and juxtapositions.

“It’s about a balance of decoration and  simplicity,” she says, “an ageless sense of freedom to play, as we rediscover the luxury of free time.”  

This soulful curiosity lies at the heart of the Fendi men’s universe, spanning out in a boundless  exploration of style at the fulcrum between nostalgia and innovation.

Approaching summer dressing as a round-the-world ticket to destinations near and far, the Fendi Spring/Summer 2023 collection reflect the colors of the earth, sea, and sky.

These include melon, indigo, ochre, putty, cornflower blue, and silver gray, all expressed on elements such as soft fringe, tassels, terry towelling, and beaded daisy chains.

The swirling weather patterns of planet Earth zoom in and out  as thermographic jacquard coats alongside cowhide motifs. This motif also appears as a psychedelic Fend-ikat linen or blown out in tonal cotton knits.  

Denim is also intertwined across the collection in different expressions: distressed  trompe l’oeil print on robes and shirt jackets; cut in long-line five-pocket jeans; framing faded Fendi Baguette bags and shoppers, and mirrored in chambray shorts with feathered hemlines.

Poplin, technical cotton, and ripstop are cut in boxy point-collar shirts, anorak, and raincoat shapes adorned with  ultrasound Selleria bonded topstitching or leather patch pocket shadows. Wide trousers in ultralight wool, panelled denim or calfskin  pool at the ankles.  

As for accessories, the focus is on tactile expressions of craft, from beaded cowhide skate sneakers to lug-sole giant O’Lock buckle loafers and fringed denim or suede moccasins. Slip-on slides are super-sized, cut-out bucket hats become visors and crochet cloches are brimmed.  

The new Fendi Roma bucket bag and duffel styles in toile and leather feature wrap-around logo craftsmanship, joining oversized two-handle ‘wash bag’ shapes: a bright summer Peekaboo ISeeU Forty8 in recycled plastic and an indigo ‘jeans jacket’ Peekaboo with an integrated water bottle  holder.

The first Peekaboo ISeeU Petit for men is revealed in textured cowhide or with beaded daisy chain strap.
