The technical accessories were unveiled during Fendi’s latest Men’s Fall/Winter 2022-2023 show.

The brand shared clips of the props on the ramp from the latest show on its official social media, with the caption: “The future is here.

To date, two models of wallet cases have been unveiled. One of the wallets is rectangular, an ode to the famous Fendi baguette bag. Made of aluminum, the accessory is adorned with engravings that form the signature Fendi buckle. The space inside the case is suitable for the digital wallet.
The second design that has been revealed is in the iconic O Lock shape with the signature Fendi logo embossed on it. This one has a concealed hinge that can be opened and closed, where the Ledger wallet can be placed. Future releases of these models will feature gold plating and leather, among other materials.
