Fendi Taps Artist Joshua Vides For a Beach-Ready Tromp L’oeil Collection

If you’re a fan of both A-Ha and Fendi, you’re in luck. The Italian house just dropped their prefall 2020 collection entitled ‘California Sky’ in collaboration with Guatemalan-American visual artist Joshua Vides. The painterly collection is reminiscent of the Norwegian synth-pop band’s hit music video “Take On Me,” where a cartoonish look runs strong. Much like that bop, Fendi’s newest launch will only get better over time.

Vides lent his touch in the form of a scribbled Fendi logo while outlining the brand’s iconic Peekaboo bag, poplin shirt dresses, and even a pair of jeans for a trompe l’oeil effect. The monochromatic color combo is the collection’s main aesthetic, complemented by subtle pops of pastel pinks and tie-dye blue, inspired by the Roman sky. The collection launches just in time for future beach escapades and features elevated summer staples like a

Pride Month is a celebration, a moment for the LGBTQ+ community to band together and proclaim their identities to the world. It’s a time of parades and elaborate parties, more often than not featuring colorful ensembles that spread joy.

From GLAAD to The Trevor Project to The Ali Forney Center, these institutions provide resources for homeless youths, combat discrimination, and petition the government for legislation that benefits those who identify as LGBTQ+. More recently, drag superstar Shangela founded Feed the Queens, which aims to distribute grocery gift cards to drag performers who have been out of work because of COVID-19. Indeed, there are many doing good for the community, but they
