Fendi’s collection was a homage to the former creative director Karl Lagerfeld, who died earlier this year.
Fendi, a fashion house which was founded in Rome, Italy, has funded yet another restoration, this time the ancient Temple of Venus. Silvia Venturini, who is the current creative director for menswear, accessories and children’s wear for Fendi, paid tribute and showcased fifty-four outfits — equalling the same amount of years that Karl Lagerfeld had worked with Fendi.
The collection has variations of silhouettes from bootcut trousers to the long coats which are almost floor length. The garments also have a romanticised silhouette with the dresses flowing as well as the trousers having a soft outline. Each design utilises unique elements, whether it be the print work, embroidery, and the element of fur. It is fascinating to see how well the fabric and print works well with each other, especially with certain outfits using geometric print.
The fur is noticeably predominant within this collection as the brand is specialised with fur which has been for a long time now and is still current in their collection. We will have to wait and see what the future has in store for Fendi. With one chapter closing, another has begun.
