Ever since that first time we swooned for Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck in Roman Holiday, we have dreamed of zipping around the Eternal City on the back of a Vespa with a very special someone.
Our friends at Fendi – who just happen to call Roma home – surely know how we feel. And so have delivered us a special holiday treat, as part of their ongoing #BaguetteFriendsForever series, which celebrates, of course, the exalted Fendi Baguette bag and, well, the beauty of friendship.
For this installment of BFF, they lured real life BFFs actress Kiernan Shipka (Mad Men, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) and director Christian Coppola to Rome – we’re guessing that didn’t have much trouble accomplishing that – to share a gelato, toss coins in the Trevi Fountain, and, of course, traverse the city on a cool lime green Vespa – all to the groovy sounds of the Fatboy Slim classic “Praise You.”
The iconic fashion house also unveiled today four restored Roman fountains – Gianicolo, Mosè, Ninfeo del Pincio and Peschier – as part of the Fendi For Fountains initiative, which is working to preserve some of the city’s most beloved ancient treasures.
Surely there will never be another Audrey and Gregory. But this new #BaguetteFriendsForever clip is another wonderful reminder that our love for Rome is as eternal as the city itself.
