With summertime just around the corner, it’s time to put away the parkas and breakout the Aperol Spritz. What it also means is that we can elevate our outfits with the perfect pair of shades. Fendi and Gentle Monster have joined forces for a range of sunglasses. Dubbed ‘Gentle Fendi,’ the collection is comprised of two unisex styles that embody the South Korean imprint’s innovative design and Fendi’s craftsmanship.

Gentle Fendi No.1 is the first of the two silhouettes, this avant-garde model combines two of the current trends- small shapes and bold logos, while Gentle Fendi No.2 sees a round frame making it more of a day-to-day accessory.

The launch of Gentle Fendi collection will happen on May 7 at select Fendi and Gentle Monster stores along with selected optic stores worldwide. Custom industrial installations will feature a 360-degree rotating structure with life-like mannequins sporting Gentle Fendi shades. Head over to Gentle Monster and Fendi’s site now to find the closest store near you.
