With Jacquemus opening a cafe in Paris and long-time Prada collaborator Patisserie Marchesi 1824 having opened this year in Mayfair, high fashion has finally reconciled itself with fine dining. The latest to join the line is Italian fashion house Fendi, which is taking over Harrods for the duration of the summer.
With the cafe’s interiors designed by artist Joshua Vides, who has brought his distinctive graphic illustrations to the forefront, with the iconic Fendi logo branded on everything from plate to palette, the cafe will serve breakfast, lunch and exclusive Fendi-inspired drinks. The menu offers everything from focaccia and cappuccinos to a full-course repast of antipasti, insalate and mains, as well as bag-shaped biscuits, or Fendi logo coffee and cake.
Food isn’t the only thing on the menu, the cafe also hosts Fendi’s iconic Baguette handbag, a reedition of the 1997 original. Moreover, whilst you dine you can create your own bespoke version of the Peekaboo bag, where you will be able to customise the body, handle and strap with 50 different variations.
Fendi cafe will be open until the 31st August. Buon appetito!
