Invictus Yacht and Anna Fendi join forces to create stylish special edition superyacht
Invictus Yachts will launch the Special Edition by Anna Fendi later this month
When the worlds of style and sailing collide, beautiful things can happen – as evidenced by the exciting new project between world-renowned Italian brands Invictus Yacht and Anna Fendi, who have joined forces to create a special edition of one of the yacht brand's most successful models, to be revealed 23 March in Milan.
The superyacht, Invictus Yacht Special Edition by Anna Fendi, has been designed by Christian Grande, an award-winning Italian yacht designer, and stylist and entrepreneur Anna Fendi, best known as Fendi’s head of development, revolutionising the leather and accessories sector.
Anna Fendi revealed: “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. Following a precise colour 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," she said.
"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.”
Talking about the collaboration, Grande revealed: “Last year I was at Villa Laetitia, the Fendi family’s residence in Rome 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. “Anna and I both share a deep love for details and we are always searching for beauty, in all it’s forms and manifestations.
"She has a tremendous experience in the language of colour – 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 material research and the presence of markedly contrasting colours illustrate the interior design of Invictus Yacht’s Special Edition by Anna Fendi and it will also feature a choice of special furnishings unique to the yachting world.
