The ‘travelling VIP room’ comprises a 12-piece collection of furniture and lighting, including an Art Deco-inspired standing mirror and a selection of low marble tables. The curved edges and pastel colours convey an elegant feminine aesthetic, crafted from luxury materials such as marble and fur.

An oversized earring back appears as a repeated motif in the marble tables, velvet sofa and mint green armchair, and the use of fur under resin, inspired by a visit to Fendi’s fur atelier in Rome, exemplifies the brand’s emphasis on workmanship.

‘[Celestino] has perfectly translated our Fendi codes into a truly sophisticated and feminine collection of design pieces that show a unique personality and a whispered luxury,’ Fendi chairman and CEO Pietro Beccari told Women’s Wear Daily.
