Fashion Week kicked off in Milan today, and Fendi is worth noting among the highlights of the first day. Among the guests of the presentation were “Gossip Girl” reboot star Jordan Alexander, Derek Blasberg, Maddie Ziegler and others. Well, on the catwalk, bright furs and archival prints awaited spectators.
Already at the show of the couture collection this summer, it became clear that Kim Jones, who had previously dealt only with men's fashion, had mastered the role of the creative director of women's collections, mastered the intricacies of cut and began to feel more confident. All this immediately affected the creative potential – more subtle details began to appear in the models, and the proportions in the silhouettes became more harmonious.
The show of the spring-summer ready-to-wear collection, which turned out to be both very creative and at the same time absolutely commercial, did not disappoint.
A striking (in the literal sense of the word) stroke was the archival work of the famous artist Antonio Lopez, who worked in the 1960s and 70s and was one of the most influential illustrators, including in fashion. The drawings were transferred to dresses in the form of prints.
Jones also significantly revived Fendi's signature fur products (not a single animal was harmed – the brand switched to fake fur long ago), adding variegated colors and using different textures.
