Fendi is the latest luxury brand to reintroduce its heritage monogram with an exclusive capsule collection in collaboration with Net-a-Porter called the FF Capsule Collection.
Drawn from the Italian label’s 1965 design, the squared logo, updated from the original rectangular version, features heavily on every item with everything from monogrammed outerwear, knits, accessories and shoes on offer.
Embellishing a total of 37 pieces, the FF logo might have had its heyday in the 1990s, but somehow it feels more relevant now than ever before.
The capsule launched on Net-a-Porter as an exclusive worldwide preview on 13 April, with many items already selling out. However, it will become available in selected Fendi stores and on the website from 14 May until the end of the year.

Guided by the pursuit of discovery both within herself and the world at large, the Chloé girl is constantly exploring with free-spiritedness and determination.
Accordingly, as the new vision for Chloé takes shape under creative director Natacha Ramsay-Levi, the debut of the Sonnie sneaker in the Pre-Fall 2018 collection signals a woman who moves through life with forward momentum.
Dynamic in form and purposeful in function, the design has been conceived as future-iconic – a style that is new today with staying power through the seasons. Among the principal features of the Sonnie sneaker are its sloped silhouette, moulded and split bi-color sole and cross-strap detailing. Whether as a high-top or classic running style, the shoe offers easy slip-on entry aided by a back loop rather than the front straps.
This comfortable nylon upper section is enhanced with a textural mix of suede calfskin, mesh and neoprene – each material contoured as a flattering arrangement. Noticeable in an understated way, the Chloé logo appears embossed on the back and embroidered on the tongue.
The strongest aspect of the Sonnie sneaker is how naturally it integrates with the Chloé wardrobe. Styled for Pre-Fall with a layering play of sport socks, leggings and cropped pants, the shoes can also be worn with toned-down attitude a jolt of athletic edge complementing a tailored blazer and sleek city trousers.
