T he latest chapter of Fendi's FF series begins with Nicki Minaj — rapper and all-around badass fashion icon. The capsule collection, Fendi Prints On (named for lyrics in Minaj's song "Chun-Li") melds t h e m u s i c i a n 's f l a m b o y a n c e with Fendi's DNA and signature artisanal techniques. Silvia Venturini Fendi and her design team have created a collection that moves from a sequin-embroidered tulle dress to nylon organza maxi windbreakers and silver tracksuits without missing a beat. Bodysuits, one-piece swimsuits, triangle bikinis, and the eye-catching Kan U bag and wraparound mask sunglasses with crystal F-shaped details round out the collection. At the Fendi boutique, fendi. com. Steven Hempel C ondé Nast and Gucci have released the third act in the third season of their short film series The Performers. For those who have not had the pleasure of viewing seasons one or two, they are well worth your time. Each short features a different setting and theme as it explores some of the world's most original creatives. The films are expertly produced, provocative, and beautiful. The latest — and last — installment, features trans actress Daniela Vega and is directed by up-and- coming Mexican director Alejandra Márquez Abella. Shot in Mexico City's Tepito neighborhood, it has an otherworldly feel. Stark, beautiful, almost magical. The film examines one's control over identity when faced with adversity — a theme that many can identify with, regardless of situation or orientation. It clocks in at just four minutes; you'll be hard pressed to find anything else that packs this much punch into such a small time frame. You can find it online at Gucci and international editions of Vogue, GQ, and Vanity Fair. Steven Hempel THE PERFORMERS ACT III C reated to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Dior Joaillerie, artistic director Victoire de Castellane's new collection, Rose Dior Pop, is a burst of color that reimagines the rose in 18K pink and white gold with bold-colored lacquer centered by diamonds and gemstones. De Castellane, who has helmed Dior Joaillerie since its inception, draws from Dior's heritage while infusing the collection with all the color and excitement one would expect from this master jeweler.

Such is the inspiration for Tom Ford's Soleil Neige beauty collection, which takes its cues from winter sunlight shimmering on snow. Ford draws inspiration from the radiant whites we imagine in polar landscapes. Eye Color Quads offer chrome shadows, while three new shades of Glow Sticks add a strobe of light to your skin for nights out. The first platinum shade of Shimmering Body Oil is scented with the new Private Blend Soleil Neige fragrance — a bracing mix of citrus, floral, and musk.
