For Fall, Fendi’s vision of femininity that’s at once provocative and restrained, ladylike and empowering.

March 4, 2020

Provocative yet restrained, the Fendi Fall 2020 RTW collection is a daring education from Fendi’s femme fatale.

Emerging through offbeat contrasts and elegant monochromy, a heady mix of cashmere, fur, leather and lace become the pillars of this season’s wardrobe. Tailoring and outerwear is built around a nipped waist; 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. Paisley of leopard spots appears in brushed wool tailoring and intarsia fur, whilst ornamentation arrives in a swathe of fringed beads or the neon shock of apricot Chantilly lace.

The accessories collection exemplifies 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 opens in a deep ‘smile’ to reveal interchangeable inside pockets. The iconic Baguette bag in handknit wool is joined leather shopper bags and charms inspired by vintage Fendi packaging.

In collaboration with the London-based accessories brand Chaos designed by Charlotte Stockdale and Katie Lyall, a series of ‘tech jewelry’ pieces and small accessories offer a luxurious alternative to everyday storage.
