Fendi’s Man for All Seasons

Published September 30, 2013

A welcome break from womenswear, Fendi’s latest men’s fashion film, Neverwinter Tale, depicts a dapper warrior who welcomes the elements. Clad in furs, leathers, and knits, our hero braves fog, sleet, and snow, ultimately emerging unfazed. Dramatic lighting, slow motion, and a futuristic soundscape compliment the luxurious garments and grant the film a cinematic quality despite its straightforwardness. “Neverwinter Tale is a simple yet incisive film that further underlines the collection’s idea of big chill while spotlighting its cuts, silhouettes, details, and fabric,” says Silvia Venturini Fendi. Unfavorable conditions have never looked so appealing.
