Bringing new order to Fendi this season is not just debuting womenswear artistic director Kim Jones and his collection of sizzlingly sensual wardrobe staples, but also Delfina Delettrez Fendi – daughter of long-time brand matriarch Silvia Venturini Fendi – as its creative director of jewellery.
Delfina Delettrez Fendi modelling for Fendi’s S/S’21 haute couture show – Kim Jones’ first-ever presentation as artistic director of the Roman house’s collections for women.
The Fall Winter 2021 season sees the introduction of Delettrez Fendi’s first proper collection of jewellery for the house. Designed in tandem with Kim Jones’ first ready-to-wear collection for the house (call that two firsts), the O’Lock line accented nearly every look on the runway. Besides jewellery, the line also extends to hair clips, perfume holders, as well as hardware details such as belt buckles, cufflinks on shirts and chain bag straps.
Below, she speaks about joining – and getting a new generation hooked onto – the family business.
