Within the fashion world, icons are usually defined by their timeless style and continuously impeccable sense of taste. These figures are household names – think, the late Karl Lagerfeld, Jane Birkin or Kate Moss – and they are championed for defining an era wearing clothes as fabulous as they are. So with every icon, comes an iconic piece of clothing, which is equally and rightfully in need of celebration.

Since its inception in 1925, Fendi has continued to symbolise some of the best in Italian craft. Initially a furrier, their innovation with textile and techniques were mind-blowing. Continuing to use these R&D skills, they push the boundaries when working with leather and even elastane – how can we forget that they pioneered the sock booties!

In celebration of that recognisable innovation, the Roman fashion house has collated a special edit of their most sought-after accessories, grouped under the moniker of ‘Fendi Icons’. Highlighting the key pieces that define them as a brand, the selection includes the ‘Baguette’ bag, inspired by the French stick often nonchalantly placed under one’s arm, which was first released in 1997 and rose to fame as being the first ‘it’ bag. Over 20 years later, millennials and Gen Z’s are still aspiring to get their hands on this cult classic, which has been spotted on the likes of Madonna, Naomi Campbell, and most notably, playing the part of Carrie Bradshaw’s most adorned accessory in Sex and the City. If this key figure of 90s stardom already sits in your closet, then perhaps their ‘Peekaboo’ tote may be a more relevant addition. Debuted at Fendi's Spring/Summer show in 2009, it quickly became a bag lover’s favourite for its distinctive top flap secured by the twist lock. Despite its name being coined from a childhood game, the ‘Peekaboo’ is all grown up.

It's not just bags. Fendi's 'Colibri' slingback is a heel to power walk in. With a built in anti-blister cushion placed on the strap, this shoe was designed with comfort and beauty in mind – why don't all strappy shoes have the same? We hope to be wearing these one day soon, strutting down a cobbled street somewhere in the urban jungle when we're let back loose on our cities, doused in the confident energy a Fendi staple will surely provide.
