Capsule Collection: Fendi by Thierry Lasry
If you put the names of Karl Lagerfeld, Fendi and Thierry Lasry together, something interesting is bound to happen. Lagerfeld is one of the most prolific designers of the two latest centuries; Fendi is a traditional but recently renewed fashion firm; and Thierry Lasry is the new darling in the eyewear industry.
Lagerfeld, with his talent for reinvention, has signed the most brilliant star in the fashion firmament as the designer of a capsule collection for Fendi. Thierry Lasry is considered to be much more than a mere sunglasses manufacturer and Fendi’s Creative Director knew the collaboration would be a great success. The presentation party was attended by the crème de la crème of the industry and now everyone is dying to be seen wearing Fanny or Sylvy.
These are the names of the two models Lasry has designed for Fendi, and each one is presented in two colors. The four styles are inspired by some pieces Sylvia Venturini Fendi made for the brand in the ‘80s and ‘90s. Their creation involves mixing different layers of acetate to create geometric patterns. Lasry has brought “further energy and vibration” to the firm and has created ultra-feminine designs in keeping with his “futuristic vintage” philosophy.
The Fanny model features bold acetate frames in a cat-eye style while Sylvy features equally wide frames with a square shape.
