Fendi and Marc Jacobs bring an exciting new edge to the world of fashion with the Summer 2023 capsule collection. This highly anticipated collaboration, initially presented as part of the multi-collab Resort 2023 collection at New York Fashion Week, has now been released to the public. Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the iconic Fendi “Baguette” bag, the Summer 2023 capsule collection combines contemporary motifs and the turn-of-the-century silhouette for a unique ready-to-wear line that echoes New York’s “Gilded Age“.
The Fendi by Marc Jacobs Summer 2023 capsule collection pays homage to FendiI’s heritage while boldly incorporating Jacobs’ signature style. Drawing from the Gilded Age’s shapes and everyday items, the collection presents a stunning palette of silvery, glittering, grey, white, fluoro yellow, and black. Distressed oversized denim jackets and pants featuring the “FENDI ROMA” logo usher the Italian luxury brand into the modern utilitarian style, while baggy parachute pants with multiple pockets are casually paired with cropped t-shirts and hoodies.
Marc Jacobs has masterfully reimagined the classic Baguette bag in this collection, showcasing it alongside baguette hoodies with front pockets that mimic the full dimensions of the Maxi Baguette bag. In addition, the multi-pocketed cargo pants and jackets feature the FF logo buckles in silver hardware and accessories with the multiple Nano Baguette utility belt.
The designer’s reinterpretation of the iconic FENDI ROMA logo brings the heritage luxury brand into the present, demonstrating the power of collaboration and innovation in the world of fashion. As Jacobs stated, “the collection plays into fantasy and reality“, making it a perfect blend of the two.
The Fendi by Marc Jacobs Summer 2023 capsule collection will be available online and in selected boutiques starting on May 11th.
