Karl Lagerfeld and Silvia Venturini Fendi presented their Fendi Spring Summer 2018 women’s Collection at Milan Fashion Week. The collection had tropical feels with shades of ocean blue wash, seafoam green, coral pink and sand. Italian futurism was also present in the designs. Light, flowy and sheer layers, symmetry of stripes and checkerboard patterns was seen throughout the collection.
“Denim trench coats and cool poplin tops reveal shoulders and scrunch at the hip, as striped silk denim and pinstriped cotton skirts hug the waist high. Nude sequin separates shimmer as moments of craft unfurl in delicate fern leaf broderie anglaise, beaded organza philodendron and palm leaves, floral leather marquetry and fur floating on silk chiffon. On foot, pointed mesh flats and pumps come adorned with tartan beading, surf straps and a rattan heel, whilst stocking boots collage the double F logo with Futurist florals. The Spring/Summer 2018 marks the first appearance on the catwalk of the Mon Trésor bag, a mini bucket presented in luxurious exotic leather festooned with metallic pearls, and the new Runaway tote in transparent tartan mesh with rounded rattan handles. The Kan I F bag returns trimmed in raffia fringes and worn with leafy suede Strap You handles.”
