Invictus’ new 370 GT Special Edition yacht is one of the most fashionable vessels at sea thanks to interior stylings form queen fashion bee Anna Fendi.
The Invictus 370 GT took the yachting world by storm when it was presented at the 2016 Cannes Yachting Festival. With its sculpted hull, distinctive reverse bow, elegant interior and choice of layout, the award-winning yacht offered a level of innovation and sophistication, comfort and performance, completely new in its size category. It has taken things one step further and adds another layer of exclusivity with interior decor and furnishings revisited by famous fashion stylist Fendi.
The project started during a chance meeting between Anna Fendi and Christian Grande, the principle designer of the Invictus range of yachts. They discovered they shared the same creative sensibilities and the ideas started to flow. From this aesthetic alchemy, a new project was born that took the 370 GT as its starting point. Among the four layout options available, the arrangement with a forward dinette and a full-beam owner’s cabin was deemed the most suitable for the 370 GT Special Edition.
The same style and attention to detail extends to the exterior cockpit where the teak decking with ivory caulking is laid out in a herring-bone pattern, and the sofas are decorated with black leather belts and buckles embossed with the Anna Fendi signature. Last but not least is the ivory white livery of the hull with its strip windows and topsides bordered in black.
Polished finishes and opaque surfaces add warmth and texture to the monochrome tones. A velvety ivory finish, has been applied to the furniture pieces of pale Tanganyika White frisé that highlight the softness of the wood. This black and white theme continues in the soft furnishings and fabrics, from the day sofa in warm, ivory white chenille, to the linen drapes bordered in dark leather.
Other Anna Fendi hallmarks include the design motifs borrowed from leather goods and travel cases. The wardrobe in the owner’s cabin is styled to resemble a classic travel case and finished in a combination of nappa and glossy black leather with metallic detailing. The dinette furniture is styled in similar fashion
with storage for wine bottles, glassware and bespoke tableware, typical of the Anna Fendi Collection, under its lifting top. A final touch is the mirrored forward bulkhead with a metal framework of black nickel that pays tribute to the Villa Laetitia boutique hotel refurbished by Anna Fendi.
