Season's Round Up # 40: FENDI SPRING-SUMMER 2013
If there was a show that could rival the glamour and prestige of Prada’s SS2013 Women’s RTW Collection it would have to be Fendi. Spring & summer would definitely not be boring with these 2 powerhouses. Fendi’s collection ensured that we would have one explosive season with a plethora of strong cuts and shapes, mixed with a multitude of fabrics [fur and leather for spring-summer! Imagine that!] and a slew of amazing accessories.
Oh gosh, the accessories alone were enough to make you have a fashion orgasm! The way they redesigned well-known It-bags i.e. the Baguette, Peekaboo and 2Jours, with thoroughly enjoyable striped and bold patterns. And did you notice those cubes, which I believe were borrowed designs from Chanel – spectacular. Of course who can ignore the shoes. Did you guys catch a whiff of the armadillo-ish pair of pumps during the opening? Gorgeous!! The clothes that ran down the runway were in itself masterpieces, rooted in an architectural and graphic base. The color palette was also inspired, where we saw a ton of bold pastels [unusual for pastel no?] - yellow, eggshell blue, caramel, cream, orange and nude. The pieces that I loved the most would have to be those flared capris and the short short skorts [which I’m thinking of purchasing for my very own].
It was a collection that was the perfect mash of cubism with a dash of futurism. How can you go wrong with that? Lagerfeld has outdone himself yet again, proving how he’s bringing Fendi to the forefront of amazing design.
