Fendi opened the latest season of Milan Fashion Week today with an impressive show.
Brought to life by Artistic Director of Womenswear Kim Jones, along with Delfina Delettrez, and Silvia Venturini Fendi the collection was a vibrant seventies disco-inspired show of light-hearted glamour.
There was a strong feeling reminiscent of Studio 54, with disco flares, fringe dresses, psychedelic prints and wide-cut suits leading the way. Silky flowy materials and printed kaftans took us back to holidays of the past.
“This is my first live show for Fendi, and it’s a celebration,” Jones said in a statement. Since joining the House in September 2020 Jones has been faced with a global pandemic which has seen all shows presented via a virtual format.
The designer collaborated with illustrators Antonio Lopez and Juan Ramos on the collection who created a hand-sketch logo to add a playful angle to the offering.
Jones also took inspiration from Lopez’s drawings for leather designs, lace dresses and shimmering evening dresses all of which had the influence of art and design infused.
