FENDI Forever…. Fall 2018 Runway Trends
The House of Fendi was built in 1925 on the foundation of fine fur and leather textiles, and over the years their commitment to cutting edge design, quality craftsmanship and exceptional materials have made Fendi one of the most respected and coveted names in fur. Season after season they surprise us and excite us with innovative and impeccable fur fashion that gives us plenty to gush about. And so we will…
But first it must be noted that Fendi has earned much broader acclaim and they now stand as one of the most recognized leaders in luxury fashion. For fall 2018 Karl Lagerfeld and Silvia Fendi proved that they deserved this recognition by focusing on daytime looks, an area that had not yet been mastered for the label. Exciting architectural shapes came in the finest luxury fabrications with impeccable tailoring and a sophisticated pallet of muted color tones. The result was pure magic, confirming Fendi’s command of the luxury fashion space.
Fendi has long recognized that exclusivity is a key driver of luxury. They have demonstrated this again and again with fur collections featuring extraordinary detailing and exquisite intarsia designs hand-made by highly skilled artisans. Each season only a limited inventory of these distinctive wearable works of art can be produced and made available for purchase adding to their prestige and elevating their luxury status. For fall 2018 an olive colored mink walking coat was tipped with black mink edging around the collar and plaid wool lining to coordinate with the skirt. This level of detail is rare. Brightening up the mood, a multi-colored tiered fox vest was the perfect complement to a plaid ensemble, and of course, even the lining matched. A geo patterned mix of whiskey mink and shearling demonstrated their exceptional craftsmanship. For your RTW needs, a whiskey mink pull-over with double F logo pattern and matching cross body bag will do the trick and a jacket and mini skirt in whiskey mink is the suit that will have you dressed to impress. The artistry of their fur design continued with a spectacular mink intarsia dress but the real OMG moment came by way of an argyle mink coat! There is no substitute for fine fur. It is the ultimate expression of chic and luxury. And because real fur is a natural, renewable resource that supports the core values of sustainability it reflects a commitment to responsible fashion that supports the environment. Fendi knows this too.
