Stunning. 

The show comes at the end of a whirlwind week of haute couture shows in Paris and less than a year after the fountain’s reopening in November 2015. The 18-month restoration of the baroque landmark, which was first completed in 1762, was funded by Fendi

Vogue reports the label “shuttled guests by chartered plane to Rome” (as one does) before treating them to what can only be described as both a sartorial and architectural masterpiece.
