Kim Jones dives into Fendi archives to create the Fall collection, inspired by Delfina Delettrez.

March 1, 2022

For the Fendi Fall 2022 RTW season, Kim Jones refracts two iconic collections through a distinctly contemporary lens, reconfiguring the past for today and considering the house’s signatures with a fresh perspective.

Reworking and pairing the geometric prints and sartorial styling of 1986 with the diaphanous lightness of Autumn/Winter 2000, what emerges is a diametric exploration of strength and of softness – a runway of powerful women in beautiful clothes. “It’s a wardrobe designed for every aspect of a woman’s life, for every generation,” Jones says.“And it all started with Delfina.”

Through wisps of chiffon tucked into elegant tweeds; delicate slip dresses paired with long cashmere gloves; stock shirting corseted into hyper-feminine forms; masculine tailoring abbreviated into cropped jackets, a new equilibrium is found. Classic Fendi utilitarianism – an irreverent unison of form and function – is inbuilt into garments with transformative functionality: a blazer detaches into a tailored gilet; a pocketed belt is designed to both cinch the waist and hold a phone.

In celebration of the Baguette’s 25th anniversary, three of its beloved previous editions are revived: in cashmere, in shearling-lined leather and in intarsia mink.

In jewellery designed by Delfina Delettrez, monograms are supersized into ear cuffs while tennis bracelets are quietly inset with baguette crystals for an allusion to the FF logo. Strung from pendants and suspended as earrings, the Master Key motif is introduced.

Experience the unique backstage atmosphere and vibrant emotions of the moment, submerging yourself in the wide-ranging world of Fendi’s Fall 2022 collection.
