Anna Fendi and Invictus Yacht collaborate to create a stunning miniyacht

Now this is a sighting you don’t seriously want to miss. Anna Fendi and Invictus Yacht is joining hands to create a boat that will obviously be the talk of the world. The still "under wraps" confidential project will be unveiled during an exclusive event in Milan on March 23rd. Anna she created the multi-million dollar Fendi fashion and lifestyle brand along with her sisters Alda, Carla, Franca and Paola says Wikipedia. The details, the creativily, pursuit of beauty therefore will be the key words in the design of the boat.The Invictus Yacht’s Special Edition by Anna Fendi, a mini superyacht will be a tribute to the thrill and style of yesteryear’s long “overseas voyages. The Anna Fendi hallmarks include the design motifs borrowed from leather goods and travel cases. The wardrobe in the owner's cabin is styled to resemble a classic travel case and finished in a combination of nappa and glossy black leather with metallic detailing. The dinette feature is styled in similar fashion with storage for wine bottles, glassware and bespoke tableware, typical of the Anna Fendi collection, under its lifting top. A final touch is the mirrored forward bulkhead with a metal framework of black nickel that pays tribute to the Villa Laetitia boutique hotel refurbished by her.
 
Last year I was at Villa Laetitia, the Fendi family’s residence in Rome,” said Christian Grande, Italian boat designer “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 ”, said 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.
 
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.”
