Fendi and Gentle Monster are saying it louder for the people in the back: gender fluid fashion is the way forward. ‘Gentle Fendi’ walks the talk as it combines Fendi’s elegance with the South Korean sunglasses giant’s unpredictability. As a unisex capsule collection presented by powerhouses with mega fan bases, Gentle Fendi is already rising in the ranks with models like Kaia Gerber and Hyun Ji Shin spotted wearing the sunglasses.
The collection shows off two stunning designs. Thought and creativity go more into creating the look than the names themselves with pairs simply called Gentle Fendi No.1 and No.2. The first is a fit for those daring and bold with their fashion choices, keeping in mind that the eyes making first impressions. This tiny pair is cat-eye like, sci-fi and comes in black, grey and a pink ‘dark havana’. Then there’s the latter pair for the easy-going fashionista who only need throw on a pair of oversized sunnies to tie up their OOTD — available in gold copper, black and palladium.
And if you happen to be in the area — Seoul, that is — the collaboration is being celebrated with a dedicated Gentle Fendi Caffè now till the end of July. Visitors can check out and indulge at the Steccolecco Gelato bar for custom-made desserts and beverages. Beijing on the other hand, is also celebrating with an interactive installation called ‘The Observer’ with live performances, and ice-cream for anyone purchasing a pair of the Gentle Fendi sunglasses.
