Milan Fashion Week is kind of old story and now we continue with Paris, the last of the big four. However, there is a collection that stayed in my mind, so I would like to take a moment to talk about it.
This September, Silvia Venturini Fendi conquered the catwalk, designed to be assimilated to a sunrise on the beach and that arrives not only as an aesthetic and attractive staging, but also fulfills a symbolic function: it should be noted that this is the first women collection of Silvia Venturini without Karl Lagerfeld, who died in February of this year. This dawn represents a new stage for Fendi. Using the words that the designer herself said to AFP: “New pages to write.”
The collection says “summer” everywhere, through its palette of bright earth colors and its checkered patterns or its flowers patterns, reminiscent of a sunset between nature, when orange and brown and yellow take over everything around you. And with their greens and pinks, mixed with quilt and transparencies, Fendi brings to mind a spring morning, with the light going through the window and the scent of a new day floating in the air. This collection truly has the power to transport you to unexpected places.
Fendi Spring Summer 2020 takes inspiration from the 60s, and captures it through cotton, lycra, organza, fur and leather, creating a display that remains between the psychedelic and the ethereal, combining long raincoats, light dresses and socks that I want to start using now.
