The FENDI Men’s Fall/Winter 2021-22 advertising campaign. Directed by the Italian artist Nico Vascellari, is a cinematic slideshow that portrays the collection designed by the Artistic Director of FENDI Accessories. And MenswearSilvia Venturini Fendias an optimistic adventure framed within a game of illusions.
An unabashed celebration of color and light, emerging from darkness into full Technicolor!
In a metaphysical set, the new advertising campaign plays with the signature looks of the collection. A broad spectrum of menswear classics twisted with FENDI playfulness. The color palette saffron, orange, fuchsia, cobalt and periwinkle is color-blocked against black, camel. And charcoal, as linings, inlays and slashed seams flash with contrasting textures and shades.
Throughout the collection, multifunctionality and form unite in reversible workwear and relaxed outerwear silhouettes. Diagonal quilting inflates all manner of silk jacquard separates from a shawl collar lounge coat to pullovers, shirt jackets and bermuda shorts in a luxuriant expression of cocooning comfort.The season’s cosmic spirit is further emphasized by a series of psychedelic and multicolour artworks realized in collaboration with the multidisciplinary artist and performer Noel Fielding, including an abstract version of the FENDI logo in his signature stream-of-consciousness scribble art.
The accessories featured in the campaign range from the Maison’s icons Peekaboo ISeeU in Cuoio Romano leather – including a black mini version featuring Noel Fielding’s graphic art – and Baguette in nylon and precious FF logo mink variants. A crossbody pouch in a miniature luggage style reprises embossed stripe FF monogram leather, completing the selection along with a total black version of the FENDI Pack backpack. In ultra-classic menswear tones, FF logo buckle loafers and the FENDI Flow sneakers continue the collection’s indoor-outdoor conceit.
The FENDI Men’s Fall/Winter 2021-22 advertising campaign, comprising 5 single and double-page visuals, including specific ones for the new Eyewear Collection – featuring the FENDI Technicolor sunglasses – and Fendi Timepieces Collection – with the Selleria GMT watch – will break in worldwide magazines in July 2021.
