Enter the Fendi Studios: An intimate experience detailing fashion in film
Honey, it's Hollywood
A movie's wardrobe can leave just as lasting an imprint as its storyline. A simple litmus test at Halloween assesses its protagonist's popularity and staying power. Masqurading as the cast of Stranger Things or It's Pennywise this year meant partying with a dozen doppelgängers, but entirely worth enduring the singular, most awkward fashion moment of 'Who wore it better?'. This is one time no one minds the clash — there's no denying that dressing up is more than half the fun.
Affording an in to the hallowed closets of a host of celebrated classic and modern films — as well as the experience of immersing yourself in iconic scenes — is the Fendi Studios exhibition in Rome, Italy. Six rooms chronicle the brand's involvement in the cinematic world over the years. At its core is a celebration of the iron-clad relationship between two industries.
Here's what you can look forward to discovering:
NEW YORK CITY THOUGH THE EYES OF CARRIE
Bradshaw, that is, as well as The Devil Wears Prada's Miranda Priestly and Jasmine of Blue Jasmine — the simulation afforded by an expansive mirror that allows for visitors to be "transported" to the concrete jungle while role-playing.
ICONIC CAR SCENES
Step into the shoes of The Grand Budapest Hotel's Tilda Swinton and Femme Fatale's Rebecca Romjin courtesy of a green screen and a set of sweet, vintage wheels.
THE BEST MOMENTS FROM THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS
How pivotal was the movie for our generation? Well, fashion today boasts an enduring affair with the Tenenbaums' 'bad taste' sportswear, and the film still headlines get-togethers today. Warranting an entire Tenenbaumland Studio within the exhibition, infinity mirrors line the space accompanied by its most memorable moments.
CATWOMAN AND THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA COSTUMES, UP CLOSE
The fabulousness of Miranda Priestly, Sharon Stone's Laurel Hedare in the 2004 Catwoman and Die Another Day's Bond girls was in part due to the power of Fendi, which means their outfits and accessories will hold court at Fendi Studios.
A MOVIE IN THE FENDI CINEMA
Within Fendi Studios is an actual theatre screening movies that have seen the brand's creations take on the big screen. Marie Antoinette, The Godfather Part III and a dedicated film exploring the house's relationship with the cinematic world, included.
