Karl Lagerfeld unfolds a new chapter with an astounding haute fourrure collection.
Last night, the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris held Fendi’s third couture show, designer Karl Lagerfeld sets a woodland atmosphere with a fantastical field of flowers in the background.
Models carried flower basket bags created with fur petal shapes forming a bouquet of poppies and irries. The show displayed outerwear of sheared Persian lamb coats found in light brown, power pink and red, jackets were crafted from shaved mink all embroidered to one another; and our favorite is a wrap coat made of hand-painted shaved mink with flap wings.
The blooms theme kept Lagerfeld in focus, and just like any traditional couture runway, the show ended with a embroidered bridal look with many motifs. The most striking was the matched shawl created with “9,000 tiny discs that took 1,250 hours to hand sew,” now that’s a well-deserved standing ovation.
