    On the off-chance you feared your apartment wasn't quite expensive enough, Fendi is here to graciously lend a hand with its newest project. In conjunction with private developer Chateau Group, the Italian fashion house has revealed its first real estate project, the Fendi Chateau Residences, a 12-story waterfront condominium in Miami just down the road from Bal Harbour Shops. Located at 9365 Collins Avenue, prices hover between $5 million and $22 million per unit, with square footage ranging from 3,300 to upwards of 7,000 square feet.

    According to a release, the new project allows Fendi to offer "its discerning clientele a unique and emotional lifestyle experience that starts at the threshold." Let's all say it together: finally!
