FENDI’S MAGIC MOMENT ON THE TREVI FOUNTAIN
WALKING ON WATER
Probably since Anita Ekberg in “La Dolce Vita” had the Trevi Fountain not lived such a glorious moment of high-resonating splendor. To mark its 90th anniversary and the restoration of the Roman landmark it sponsored, Fendi showed its FW 2017 Couture show by Karl Lagerfeld here with models, including Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid, appearing to walk on the sparkling water. A magical fairytale backdrop that enhanced Lagerfeld’s otherworldly masterpieces, beautifully and uniquely executed - hand-painted dresses, intarsia fur, sheared velvet and gorgeous floral decorations.
The Plexiglas runway installation over the shallow pool allowed guests to absorb the beauty of one of the world’s most famous monuments. Started in 1762 by Nicola Salvi, the Trevi Fountain was completed by Pietro Bracci and is the largest Baroque fountain in the Eternal city and one of the most famous in the world.
