Creative director Karl Lagerfeld, purveyor of iconic clothing and iconic runway shows, pulled out all the stops Thursday for Fendi’s newest couture collection. In celebration of the brand’s 90th anniversary, he went full on Lagerfeld, transforming Rome’s iconic Trevi Fountain with an ethereal, translucent runway that gave the illusion models like Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner were walking on water.
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.

Talk about living la dolce vita, eh?
