Earlier this month, Fendi celebrated its 90th anniversary in Rome in a major way. The forty-six look haute fourrure show, aptly titled Legends and Fairy Tales, was inspired by Kay Nielsen's Art Nouveau/Art Deco illustrations in the classic Norwegian book East of the Sun and West of the Moon, which was recently reprinted by publishing giant TASCHEN.
The fantastical models walked on--yes, on--the Trevi Fountain, which just wrapped a $2.4 million, one-and-a-half-year rehab. A crystal-like bridge skimmed the top of the waters to create a mystical feeling for this captivatingly sensational show.
“To do this on a crystal bridge over the most famous fountain in the world? If that’s not a fairy tale, I don’t know what a fairy tale is.” - Karl Lagerfeld
