Fendi brings freshness to the Milan Men’s Fashion week with a theme of dualism for which Silvia Venturini Fendi and Karl Lagerfeld bring forth contrasting elements to create a new narrative for the men’s wardrobe at the turn on the decade.
The collection, according to Silvia, is a dialogue — an encounter and connection of two personalities: Silvia and Karl, Paris and Rome, classicism and modern, popular cultures. Handwritten notes, images, sketches: a moodboard seamlessly connecting a Parisian studio with a ginormous library to the Roman one, becoming a collage print transported throughout the collection.
Everything is dual: futurism and classicism swirl in a palette dominated by black, beige and brown, with accents of red and electric blue. The accessories collection once again champions a futuristic FF logo alternated with a calligraphic one. Shoes come in Cuban heels on cordovan or patent. Travel accessories are star of the collection as the Fendi man brings his essentials around into cases, studded, foldable or defended by transparent covers turning into shoppers. And, for the first time, the boys get to experience Fendi’s most iconic handbag — the legendary Baguette — in mini and maxi size, and in precious croco or mink and Selleria leather, styled as cross-body, hand-carried or as a belt bag.
