Italian spirit, creativity, pursuit of beauty, constant move to innovation – these are the keywords that perfectly illustrate the concepts merging Invictus Yacht and Anna Fendi, two word-class representatives of Italian success across the globe, here in a joint project for the very first time.
Still “under wraps”, this confidential project will be revealed during an exclusive event in Milan on March 23rd,. The venture arose from their common desire to create a boat able to reflect the vast experience of Christian Grande, one of the most highly quoted Italian yacht designers, and that of Anna Fendi, stylist and entrepreneur famous for her professional and personal creativity.
“Last year I was at Villa Laetitia, the Fendi family’s residence in Rome,” said Christian Grande, “sketching the lines for a design in my personal little notebook that I always have with me. Anna Fendi, seeing me there with a pen in hand, was curious as to what I was drawing, and we simply began to chat – that’s how the idea of working together on this project was born.”
The result of this unprecedented collaboration will be a Special Edition of one of Invictus Yacht most successful models, with interiors designed by the stylist: “Anna and I both share a deep love for details and we are always searching for beauty, in all it’s forms and manifestations ”, declared Christian Grande. “She has a tremendous experience in the language of color – this, combined with my knowledge of the yachting world, created a mutual understanding, binding, connecting and amplifying our cultural backgrounds. This project represents a third way forward, different from what we would have achieved separately.”
Thorough research for materials and the presence of markedly contrasting colors, characterize the interior design of Invictus Yacht’s Special Edition by Anna Fendi and, thanks to the choice of special furnishings, unique to the yachting world, this mini superyacht will be a tribute to the thrill and style of yesteryear’s long “overseas voyages”.
“In decorating this yacht I started thinking of travel as a concept, and I was inspired by old steamer trunks in parchment and Bulgarian leather”, said Anna Fendi. “Following a precise color scheme and using materials not usually found in the yachting world, I tried to decorate this little sea-borne jewel in a very special way and with a strong personality. I’ve always adored yachts of this size, they have an intrinsic sense of proportion, with an intimate and adventurous feel. With Christian we tried to study every single detail and create something beautiful and very functional.”
Note: this project is the result of a collaboration between Invictus Yacht and AFV Anna Fendi. The FENDI brand, part of the LVMH Group, is not at all part of this partnership.
