Fendi Selleria Collection: The Art of the Watch

Bespoke suits from Saville Row, haute couture gowns from Parisian ateliers — When it comes to next-level quality, it’s all about a custom craft. Leave it to Fendi, the near-90-year-old Italian luxury house famed for their furs, to inject that same standard of artistry into their fine jewelry. In 2010, creative director of accessories Silvia Venturini Fendi introduced the Selleria watch collection (debuting on Gilt today), which features interchangeable cases and straps for endless combinations to suit your style and mood. Swiss-powered and Italian-designed, the innovative watches are hand-stitched and crafted from the same Cuoio Romani leather used for the signature Selleria handbags, launched in the company’s first year.
