Fendi is the latest fashion house to open a luxury hotel: seven VIP suites on the third floor of Palazzo Fendi, the five-storey 17th-century flagship store that reopened in March on Largo Goldoni in the heart of Rome. This is boutique at its best. Italian architect Marco Costanzi has used beige and greys to create a Zen-like ambience above the buzz of the Italian capital.
"This is a home experience for a sophisticated traveller," says
Costanzi of Fendi Private Suites. Walls are clad in travertine,
bathrooms in blood-red Lepanto marble and throughout are
commissioned artworks, Modernist Giò Ponti mirrors and
custom-designed furnishings by Fendi Casa, of course.
