Silvia Venturini Fendi, the Artistic Director of Accessories and Menswear, likes to see FENDI as a traveling time capsule, mirroring decades and destinations, with Italian craftsmanship as its forever North Star. 

Soon, FENDI will be celebrating its 100th Birthday, with that nostalgia runs high while the future is bright. And with the centenary year fast approaching, the Spring/summer 2025 Men’s collection is an homage to the universal and noble House codes that predate the first men’s silhouette revealed at FENDI in 1990.

The tailoring of this collection embodies soft expressions of contemporary masculinity seen through the lens of modern luxury. Once symbolizing an international elite, the notion of uniforms for work and play are deconstructed and dreamed anew in powdery shades: a mineral palette of sherbet and mist, ivory, caramel and buttermilk mingle with soft blues and natural indigo, black and forest green. 

From head to toe, the collection revels in the virtuosity of the Selleria stitch, a technique passed to the Fendi family by Roman master saddlers in 1925. Scaled up and down, it is re-interpreted as a broken pinstripe suiting jacquard and threaded as a stripe or tonal FF logo through linen and plush textures, applied as a surface on Japanese boro denim, or reduced to a minimalist frame on crisp wool outerwear and leather goods. In a chic way, sporty yet ceremonial, an emblem giving the idea of FENDI Club emerges – proudly embedded on Brest pockets and buttons.

Subtle volumes create whispers of the past, as in an ample cloth bomber jacket, fluid trench coat, and 3-button blazers paired with slashed trousers cut loose through the leg. Contoured details twist the propriety of garments: poplin shirt sleeves slashed at the elbow may be worn long or short, polo plackets twist from throat to rib, and asymmetric silk knits unbutton down the shoulder creating an airy modularity. Over pleated shorts, long, patch-pocket overshirts with silk ties are layered beneath short summer jackets in tonal combinations of linen, leather, Madras check cotton and ultralight suede.

The Accessories of the Men’s Spring/Summer 2025 collection echoes the season’s Selleria obsession, from the Peekaboo ISeeU Soft bag and supple diagonal shoppers, to the new zippered Baguette Double crossbody bag, and a patchwork Baguette crafted from multi-coloured offcuts from the FENDI ateliers. Whipstitch details adorn the season’s contrast panelled FENDI Force sneakers, alongside moulded lug-sole loafers and patent leather or wax thread-embroidered slip-on flats.
