Fendi is an Italian luxury fashion house founded in 1925 by Edoardo and Adele Fendi.
It was launched as a fur and leather shop in via del Piebiscito in Rome. Since 1946 five sisters (Anna, Paola, Franca, Aida and Carla) joined the company and in 1965 Karl Lagerfeld comes on board as a Creative Director for Women’s RTW & Fur. Since 1994, Silvia Venturini Fendi, daughter of Anna, joined company as a Creative Director for Men’s line & Accessories.
Basically Karl Lagerfeld has been working with Fendi for nearly half a century. But this is the most inspirational collection ever to our mind! It’s just so right, right for the moment! Like Lagerfeld says: “I just do whatever I feel is right for the moment”. And we are totally agree!
We like every single piece from this collection. It’s so modern and elegant, fresh and linear. Absolutely the new vision, new era for Fendi! Modern avant-garde style with retro prints inspired by the Swiss artist Sophie Taeuber-Arp.
Construction of the garments is so geometrical and architectural, but soft and flexible at the same time. Panels attached at the sides, huge pockets in contrast fabric and rounded big buttons, all the oversized details captured our attention. We love a lot puffy duvet jackets & dresses in chocolate and cinnamon shades with lots of volume which gives softness to the look. Mix of fur and leather goes so well together – fur coat with leather collar and trimmings around the pockets. A-line shapes and fitted turtleneck, mid-calf length – so simple and clean.
And if we need to choose our favourite ones…really hard choice! but let’s say furry mini dresses and a cinnamon leather dress!
