It was such a pleasure to have my very own private tour to Fendi’s The Whispered Italian Grand Tour Exhibition at The Landmark Atrium last Thursday. Inspired by a book jointly published by Fendi and Electra celebrating Italian craftsmanship and culture, the exhibition brings the volume to life in 9 different craft items. Not a lot of people know about this, but I spent my first year of university in Florence and of course, walking through this exhibit stirred up memories of my time in Italy.
