The Fendi Fall 2018 collection spotlighted lines of architecture create romantic uniforms in tailored fabrics and diamond patterns reflect the softness and strength of the modern urban woman. Elegant pleated silk dresses and blouses meet tailored box shoulder capes creating a mirror of softness and strength.
The collection featured neat boxy-shouldered dresses and coats which Venturi Fendi described as “a romantic uniform for a strong and powerful woman of today.” And then there was Karl Lagerfeld, talking in a pre-chat about his vast collection of antique table linen and bed linen: “Since a boy, I always thought it was the top of luxury to have clean, white cotton sheets.”
With ’40s and ’80s, a touch of film noir, and a pinch of sci-fi, the lineup for Fall included the styling of classily minimal cowboy boots throughout the show. With the clarity and playfulness of the way Fendi double-F beige-brown logo patterns were deployed over everything from tights to fur sweatshirts to flocked trenchcoats and baguette bags, there was a lot to see.
