Celebrating the iconic Fendi Peekaboo bag, the brand collaborated with renowned director and longtime friend of the House, Luca Guadagnino. This partnership resulted in a short film, depicting Adwoa Aboah reincarnated on screen as a superwoman, levitating above Roman rooftops before arriving at Fendi’s Palazzo della Civilta Italiana.
“My mother wore Fendi in the 70s and 80s, so the Fendi logo, type of materials, quality and design have always been part of my imagery,” said the filmmaker. Watch the campaign video here.

So where is Louis Vuitton taking us for its next presentation? Today, the Maison announced the venue for its Cruise 2023 collection, which will be held at the Salk Institute in La Jolla, San Diego County, California on May 12, 2022.
The institute is a famous treasure trove of modern and brutalist architecture designed by the Estonian-born American architect, Louis Kahn, in collaboration with its namesake and founder, Dr. Jonas Salk, a scientist who left his indelible mark on the scientific community by discovering the first safe and effective polio vaccine. On another historical note, this will be the very first fashion show to be held at the Salk Institute.
