All the furs and the clothes come from the FENDI archives.

The sculptured leather bustier is layered over a caramel velvet short-sleeved dress, both belong to the fall/winter 2009/10 collection.

As worn on actress Claudia Cardinale in the 1984 Marco Bellocchio film "Enrico IV," the grey chinchilla fur stole is juxtaposed over a matching sequin embroidered sheath dress from the fall/winter 2011/12 collection. The paneled red and white striped skin in leather belongs to the spring/summer 2012 collection and the calfskin ankle booties, with contrast elastic gores and patterned heel, to the fall/winter 2012/13 collection. The outfit is complimented by the fall/winter 2008/09 ball bracelet with brass and silver beads, the fall/winter 2009/10 copper bangles and MARIA LA ROSA silk ribbed socks. In the timeless shade of midnight blue the silk crepe shirt is paired with black evening trousers and leather lace-up derby shoes.

Geometric silk motifs adorn the front of a short-sleeved brown cashmere cardigan from the spring/summer 2008 collection, revealing a printed mustard t-shirt underneath. "Fan di Fendi" Eau de Parfume for men and women lie on the wooden beauty shelf.

The white fox fur cape with black velvet inserts is the one worn by soprano Teresa Stratas, as Violetta Valery, in the 1983 Franco Zeffirelli film adaption of "La Traviata." The spring/summer 2011 navy sheer cardigan with tricot braid details is styled over a powder silk raw-edged baby-doll from the spring/summer 2010 collection. A laminated silver pencil skirt, part of the spring/summer 2007 show, and a timeless fox fur neck-stole layer the look. MARIA LA ROSA ribbed silk socks compliment the black calfskin boots with ankle straps and pyramid heels from the fall/winter 2007/08 collection.

Effortlessly cool, this bomber jacket is proposed in beige astrakhan fur with dark leather sleeves and is part of the fall/winter 2008/09 collection. The black pleated trousers are accompanied by the patent leather Paddock boots.

Alan Parker's "Evita" featured this magnificent mink, worn by Madonna as Evita Peròn in 1996. The outfit is completed by a loose devoré velvet t-shirt and brown tight leather trousers, both belonging to the fall/winter 2009/10 collection. The fall/winter 2008/09 ball necklace with brass and silver beads adornes the neck. A classic navy short-sleeved polo-shirt tops the coated denim trousers and the leather Paddock boots.

A young Isabelle Huppert played the role of Alphonsine Plessis in Mauro Bolognini's 1980 film "La Storia Vera della Signora delle Camelie" wearing this dramatic white ermine stole enriched by delicate puffed roses. Sparkling threads of silver beads encrusts the dark velvet top from the fall/winter 2008/09 show. The antique rose patchwork silk skirt, taken by the spring/summer 2009 collection, is complimented by the fall/winter 2011/12 "Chameleon" laser-cut pumps.
