FENDI On Point – Fendi + Nicki Minaj, PnB Rock & Murda Beatz
Nicki Minaj has spent a career collaborating with the best in the business. No need to stop now.
Everyone knows what Nicki Minaj is all about. Even if you’re not a one of the tens of millions of fans she has all across the world, she’s still managed to transcend the industry to become a recognised household name no matter what your cultural influences may be. It should come as no surprise then that one of the ways she has transcended her industry is by becoming something of a muse for some of the world’s best fashion houses and taking that buzz straight to the covers of some of the world’s best fashion magazines.
One of the fashion houses Minaj is working with is Fendi. Working with creative director Silvia Venturini Fendi, Minaj has recently collaborated on a new capsule collection for Fendi’s FF series called FENDI Prints On. Like the famed recording artist herself, the collection apparently combines ‘space-like futuristic’ designs with high-end glamour – and bold signature ‘FF’ logos taking pride of place over all of the designs (and, yes, even in her hair). The collection, available at the end of your fingertips and in store directly after the launch on October 14th, will feature a plethora of metallic shimmering surfaces and textures incorporated into body-hugging silhouettes, oversized puffers and coats, and contemporary leisure and streetwear. There will even be an accessories collection to accompany the drop that revolves around Fendi’s equally iconic Peekaboo and Baguette bags. Which begs the question: just how quickly will they be able to restock them to meet the demand?
That’s not where this exciting collaboration ends, though. In today’s world we all know there is no media without the ‘multi’ and as a prelude to the launch of the collection Nicki Minaj teamed up with rising Philly rapper, PnB Rock, and Canadian producer Murda Beatz to release a bouncing hip hop track called, naturally enough, Fendi (available to buy now). We’re not saying it’s the first time in history a new collection from a fashion house will be released in the wake of its own international anthem, but it sure does seem like it. Regardless, it’s not a bad way to keep the anticipation bubbling over for the duration, is it?
