Hello lovelies,

 It was only after Karl Lagerfeld had designed the latest Fendi collection, featuring a new kind of construction based on panels of leather, that it occurred to him he'd been once again inspired by the architecture of the Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana, the masterpiece of Fascist architecture that is Fendi's new headquarters in Rome. The same style of building surrounds the empty, eerie piazzas in the paintings of Giorgio de Chirico. He got a name-check, too.
 The 51 models showed pure styles with graphic elements to the beat of Michel Gaubert. Suitable to the music, a bird-of-paradise flower bobbed in the FENDI It-Bags.The looks are dominated by soft colors such as white, red, black and natural shades of brown. Karl Lagerfeld showed long coats with large buttons, long straight silhouettes, box down jackets with oversized lapels and funny Fur-Booties in graphical fancy design and extravagant FENDI typical materials.Source of inspiration for the collection and the Set-Up of the show were works by the Swiss artist Sophie Taeuber-Arp. Her work is not only reflected in some Ready-To-Wear pieces, but also in the accessories, designed by Silvia Venturini Fendi. Her artistic approach with the varied vertical horizontal compositions of triangles, rectangles, circles, wavy elements and curved lines perfectly fit to the FENDI DNA and form the ideal framework for the new collection.

                                                                 I hope you loved the show,too.
                                                                         Hugs and Kisses,
                                                                                Azra Yates
