MFW: Fendi FW20 – The Dualities of La Donna Fendi

27.02.2020 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

It is safe to that Creative Director Silvia Venturini Fendi has been hitting her stride within the past few seasons. For FW20-21, the designer explored what it means to be a FENDI woman , or rather FENDI women with a collection that spoke to the different interpretations of what it means to be feminine. It was a collection that was charged with power yet stroked with softness and delicacy. It was a play between between a total dominance and a graceful elegance that was brought out even through the fabrics used. A mixture of cashmere, leather, lace and even fur were the headliners. 

“Tailoring and outerwear is built around nipped waists; flared officer’s coats, burnished perfectos and high-octane blazers are boned through the bodice with shoulders that plane to a flat point or drop into a Juliet sleeve. Voluptuous shapes unfurl into cozy loopback sweaters, a bonded leather accordion skirt and bibbed organdie blouses.”

Each silhouette was defined by its respective story. The FENDI Fall/Winter 2020-2021 Accessories Collection were also optly paired with this season’s boudoir themes, as padded lambskin ‘brace’ booties and satin ‘suspender’ pumps elicit vampish airs.

In three sizes, a new accordion-frame Peekaboo bag opened in a deep ‘smile’ to reveal interchangeable inside pockets in smooth leather and precious skins. It appeared also dipped in gold leather fringes or traced with appliqué lacework and beaded tassels. The iconic Baguette bag in handknit wool was joined in leather shopper bags and charms inspired by vintage FENDI packaging, returning from the last Men’s Collection.

MFW Men’s: Fendi’s FW20 Man of The Future

17.01.2020 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

Men’s Fall Winter 2020-21 marked the dawn of a fresh new direction for creative director Silvia Venturini Fendi. This season, guests were invited to the FENDI headquarters in Milan to witness the presentation of Madam Fendi described as the man of tomorrow. With this notion, she crafted a collection with retro-futurist undertones. The goal was to approach menswear and clothing on a whole from an entirely different perspective, seeing a garment as a body wallet.

A vessel which can and should evolve throughout time. Inside – out constructions and quilting were traced across blazers, coats cut in compact matte satin and outerwear shapes in waterproof gabardine were bonded with felt tabs and FENDI Roma taped seams. There was a sort of gender fluidity throughout the collection, as some jackets were cropped and  a few pants were tailored to move like skirts. 

The house also debuted pieces of their collaboration with Japanese designer Anrealage who added a selection of photochromic outerwear and accessories that transform with the FF logo when exposed to UV sunlight.

For the first time in a very long time, Italian fashion house Fendi stepped off site their routined Milanese show space and headed for the gardens of an 18th century villa in central Milan for their SS2020 show. A switch that had been prompted by creative director Silvia Venturini Fendi’s need for a break from the virtually infested world we live in as she takes a minute to appreciate the fruits of Mother Nature . This collection was a version of the Fendi man that goes fishing on weekends and gardens in his spare time. Sartorial workwear pieces were presented with a casual elegance that allow their wearers a sort of relaxed eased approach towards life.

From khaki cotton overalls, to striped beach slips, to fishmerman style vests and cargo pants. Throughout the collection, the house also revealed their collaboration with renown “Call Me By Your Name” director Luca Guadagnino who drafted a few botanical prints for the collection. These were brought out through digital prints and cut out knit wear. The colour palette was one that blended with the habitat ranging from beiges, to greens , browns and whites. In regards to accessories, the house debuted a Pequin printed Fendi watering can, garden baskets, big totes, pouch bags as well as versions of the Fendi baguette and peekaboo bags. This collection was a breath of fresh air for the house, one that in some ways allows for a sort of reset, and more than anything conjures the desire for a vacation.
