We are proud to open FENDI Factory to our clients and press, making it live outside the day by day for the upcoming men’s fashion show in June during Pitti Uomo,” said Serge Brunschwig, Chairman and CEO of Fendi. “It is a special place for our artisans and local community as it represents FENDI heritage and creativity, nurturing precious handmade abilities of its artisans and preserving Made in Italy.

Silvia Venturini Fendi, Artistic Director of Accessories and Menswear, expressed her excitement about the event, “It will be such a unique occasion to see our products take life exactly where our artisans make them, letting them take center stage on that day.”

The decision to hold the show in Tuscany was made after discussions with Pitti Immagine and the Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana. Antonio De Matteis, Kiton’s CEO and newly appointed President of Pitti Immagine, said, “I am particularly delighted with the presence of FENDI, one of the most prestigious luxury brands on the global scene, at Pitti Uomo in June, precisely in the edition that marks my debut at the helm of the company.

Carlo Capasa, Chairman of the Camera, emphasized the significance of Fendi’s choice to present its menswear collection at its Tuscan factory, “It is amazing that a great brand, a member of CNMI, by opening the doors of its own factory highlights the work of craftsmanship that makes Italian fashion unique in the world.

The FENDI factory was built with sustainability and social responsibility in mind, using natural sunlight and the impressive landscape to benefit its artisans and employees. The complex produces around 200,000 pieces a year, including some of FENDI’s most iconic bags, such as the Baguette and the Peekaboo, and small leather goods. The plant is expected to be the first FENDI plant to reach the prestigious LEED Platinum certification this year.

Raffaello Napoleone, CEO of Pitti Immagine, emphasized the “special bond” between FENDI and the city of Florence, “FENDI’s investment harnesses the skills and knowledge rooted here and at the same time nurtures them, contributes to their modernization, and combines them with high-quality design in fashion and accessories.
