Characterized by elegant and unexpected designs, the Fall/Winter 2012 collection features unusual combination of materials and treatments, and creativity in both form and character.
Color – vibrant and contrasting – is used to enrich and enhance frame features. A meticulous attention to quality and an innate sense of curiosity for anything avant-garde transform the FENDI Eyewear collection, creating refined and timeless styles for the FW12 season.
A featured sunglass in the FW12 ad campaign, the striking design of FS5281 is subtle yet evident on second glance of frame fronts and temples. The Pequin pattern, a proprietary design detail reintroduced at least year’s runway, is incorporated onto temples. The contrasting colors are then replicated on frame fronts in a layered brow adornment and inlaid metal across the top bridge, drawing attention to the uplifting lines found on the vintage wayfarer. This FENDI boutique only style is available in Havana/Black Brow, Khaki/Black Brow, Blue/Black Brow, and Mustard/Black Brow.
FENDI iconic handbags, find new interpretation on FS5276. Translating classic beauty and elegance, temples are inspired by the buckle detail and feature 3-layers of traditional FENDI color contrasts. Creating a self-assured look with subtle logoed temples, FS5276 is available exclusively in FENDI boutiques in colors Striped Brown, Striped Coffee, Classic Havana, and Blonde Havana/Red-Blue Temple.
Sleek lines create the gentle curvatures of FS5282 and FS5283, reminiscent of the design detail found in the integrated “F” on heels of the past season’s shoes. Vivid color insets begin from inner brows, extending over voluminous lenses and continuing onto temples emphasizing contrast and FENDI’s use of color.
An inlaid metal FENDI “F” hugs lens extremities, coursing fluidly around the deepest part of frame fronts. Available in Black/Saffron Brow and Blonde Havana/Red Brow in FS5282; and Cream/Khaki Brow and Classic Havana/Petrol Brow in FS5283.
Following an interlocking double “F” metal plaque inlaid on temples, the proprietary Pequin pattern is replicated on thin zyl temples. The classic, modified square frames is featured in the FW12 ad campaign and is available in Black, Havana, Light Havana, Blue, Dark Red, and Petrol.
Polished and filled with rich enamel, a FENDI logo plaque is layered onto thin temples. Gradient colorations of Striped Grey, Ivory, Havana, Striped Brown, and Blue saturate the nose bridge and brows, fading down temples and frames to mere hints of color. A modified oval, F979 is a skillfully crafted optical frame made purely of Italian zyl.
FENDI reintroduces the avant-garde styling of a pronounced brow onto optical styles F1002 and F1003R. Crafted of pure zyl, F1002 skillfully uses contrasting colors to draw eyes to the delicate brow curvature on these modified rectangles. The feline prowess of F1003 finds inspiration from FENDI’s jewelry with individually placed Swarovski crystals gently flowing along brows. The precious adornments bring elegance to this vintage inspired shape, which is exclusively available in Black/Grey, Havana/Green, and Havana/Honey.
