In Milan, Fendi took the audience on a Nordic adventure with thick, billowing fur parkas and accessories that were fitting for the season. It was this luxurious quality that defined the collection which probably won’t make animal rights activists too happy.
The proof was in the pudding, or rather the presentation which lasted an hour and allowed the fashion press to get up close and see the intricate details and quality of materials. So whilst the industry observed; leather, fur and wool made up panelled jackets and coats, slim trousers, chunky knitted jumpers featuring argyle design in hues of yellow and slate, tailored slate suits in faded check and two toned shirts.
It wouldn’t be Fendi without the accessories stealing the show and fur, much like the collection and shoes (fur moccasins and snow boots) came in travel bags with fur panelling which were large or in one case, a fanny pack. An odd commodity for an adventure, but with Fendi, anything goes.
