Today’s world offers so many chances for everyone. What seemed unbridgeable before, such as sportswear and evening attire, high and low fashion or even good or bad taste, has fully merged. People have the chance to show and spread their talents via social media.
Hey Reilly’s illustrations of Lagerfeld and Venturini Fendi are on display in Fendi’s store windows.
Here is a lucky punch that just took place in the world of fashion. One of the most hyped collaborations started with a direct message on Instagram when Silvia Venturini Fendi, the house’s creative director of accessories, menswear, and kids, first spotted @hey_reilly’s Fendi + Fila logo on the Instagram artist’s feed in February last year.
The Scottish creative is known for his tongue-in-cheek monikers. Together with Karl Lagerfeld, who designs Fendi’s womenswear line, Silvia took logomania to this new and exciting form this season. The mashup of Fendi and Fila’s iconic typefaces, a truly viral design, was teased at the F/W 2018 runway show and is now at the core of the Resort 2019 capsule collection.
You can shop the limited edition pieces at NET-À-PORTER, MATCHESFASHION, and MYTHERESA. A little hint from my side, at Net-à-Porter the prices are for some pieces much cheaper than at the other stores.
I am crazy for these pieces and you?
