In an exceptional synergy of Italian style and design, yacht maker Benetti and Fendi Casa—the home-furnishing brand of Rome-based fashion house Fendi—have collaborated to produce Lady Lara, the 194-foot custom megayacht. In its first venture at sea, Fendi Casa—under the direction of interior design firm Studio Massari—has provided the furnishings for Lady Lara, which Benetti delivered last summer. Characteristic Fendi touches abound throughout the vessel’s six cabins, which accommodate up to 12 guests, from the handles on the cabinets and doors, which resemble the distinctive fasteners on Fendi’s Spy bags, to lamps modeled after the company’s Karl Lagerfeld–designed double-F logo. The main salon is draped in soothing cream and beige upholstery, while gold finishes and moldings give the space a warm quality. – From Robb Report
