Fendi Fall Winter 2012

I am always amazed when I see shapes and silhouettes that have been done many times before, look totally new. That’s what this Fendi show was about, a study of proportion, silhouette, and shape, which evolved throughout the show. I also love the Fendi palette: tans, dark blue, mustard yellow, and other rich colours which seem to work together perfectly. My complaints? The fun fur (don’t make fur look fake, Karl) and the giant belts, which worked in some silhouettes, but looked very unappealing in others.

I love…

the deep colour palette that is very Fendi, and the beautiful shape of those sleeves and storm flaps.

fendi's magical use of furs and skins.

these fur sleeves.

a simple leather coat. Perfection.

I loathe…

these giant belts. They create a very strange and unattractive silhouette in some of the looks, although, they don't look terrible everywhere.

when fur looks like part of a Sesame Street costume.
