Fendi and fur are inseparable, and knowing Karl, although it may look fake at times, it’s real, it’s all real. Unofficially referred to as ‘Italy’s leading house in designer fur and every other sort of reptile skin’ [by us], references to the animal kingdom were countless (be they leather…or the occasional sequinned python dress.) Despite it being only a Resort collection, the sheer workmanship within each of the garments is awe inspiring. On one hand, the sport-luxe vibe gave way to striped track pants, then you had intricately beaded shift dresses, lengthy skirts patch-worked with texture; and a collection which now brings the jungle to thought.
Punches of blues, reds and soft yellows amped up the presentation which was largely madeup of textured neutrals. There was also a very Phoebe Philo-esque mix of both tan and black leather, which reminded of this look from the Celine Fall 2011 Collection. Overall, it was a very linear focused collection, with biker jackets, and skirt hems alike outlined with leather strips.
Yet, one of the most well-crafter pieces was the mink capelet, which in itself encapsulated the entire essence of Fendi. What is a Fendi collection without a touch of Mink?
