29 November 2017 – FENDI’s Made-to-Order service goes digital with Farfetch, launching Customize It - taking creative customisation to the next level.

Combining the Maison’s excellent materials, extraordinary creativity and Farfetch’s platform, with the customer’s utmost desire for exclusivity, the FENDI Customize It service allows clients to mix-and-match their totally unique design of the Kan I F bag and Strap You; with a wide range of modern colour options, logo styles and hardware variants.

“In our era, customisation is the ultimate expression of luxury for our clients. We are delighted to be launching Customize It, FENDI’s very first online customisation service for our Kan I F bag and Strap You. This project came to life thanks to the partnership with Farfetch and we think it will be a unique opportunity to showcase our daring creativity and pioneer spirit in a new digital and modern way, combining our client’s needs of luxurious exclusivity with the Maison’s perfect blend of tradition and innovation”, states Pietro Beccari, president and CEO of FENDI.
José Neves, founder and CEO of Farfetch, said: “Customisation is a return to the very definition of luxury and now, more than ever, customers expect products, experiences and services with a customisable element.

Together we have created a state-of-the-art customisation experience that is second to none in the luxury market. We are thrilled to collaborate with FENDI on this project for these beautiful bags and straps and give our global customers the opportunity to create something bespoke to express their individuality.”
