In Mi­lan, the re­sult of the col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween to ge­niuses of the Ital­ian style will be re­vealed. Stylist and en­tre­pre­neur Anna Fendi, best known as Fendi’s head of de­vel­op­ment, and award-win­ning Ital­ian yacht de­signer Chris­tian Grande de­signed for Invictus Yacht the new Spe­cial Edi­tion, one of the yacht brand’s most suc­cess­ful mod­els. The in­te­rior de­sign of the new yacht is char­ac­ter­ized by the pres­ence of markedly con­trast­ing col­ors and thor­ough ma­te­rial re­search; more­over, it also fea­tures a choice of spe­cial fur­nish­ings unique to the yacht­ing world. 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 the per­sonal note­book that I al­ways carry with me. Anna Fendi 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 its 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.”

Anna Fendi said: “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. 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.”
