Fendi Spring-Summer 20 Fashion Show
FENDI Women’s Spring/Summer 2020 Collection
Drenched in the warmth of an Italian sunrise, the FENDI Women’s Spring/Summer 2020 Collection designed by Silvia Venturini Fendi charts a path of playful opulence through a summer’s day. Impossible blooms and ethereal textures intertwine to trick the eye – shifting in weightless moments of FENDI craftsmanship, invoking the hidden decadence of the everyday. Roman sensibilities luxuriate in the rub of utility with the frivolous and the ultra-feminine. A sunny palette surges into acid brights from wisps of palest pink, honey and pecan. Emerging from a waking dream, the FENDI woman delights in undone expressions of new borghese energy.
Reveling in the refraction of blown-up gingham and block-cut blanket flowers, flurries of graphic geometry invite a sensual play of transparency, perforation, weaving and knits. Pockets and hemlines float on honeycomb tulle creating artful suspensions, translating precious fur techniques into square twinset tailoring and ample jacket shapes bifurcated with diaphanous panels. Paperbag shorts and trousers in waxed or organic washed cottons meet double-buttoned shirt coats and jackets in cotton toweling, glazed florals or rich suede. Summer fur is bonded to floral lycra or knitted as a plush check, whilst draped sheer sequins and filmy knits echo the sculptural dimensions of cloudy quilting and cloqué. A kaleidoscope of texture and tone remixes FENDI tradition with a streak of summer rebellion.
The FENDI Spring/Summer 2020 Accessories reprise the Collection’s natural materials, as the Peekaboo is woven in compact raffia, latticework leather and open weave FF logo toile. The Baguette is encrusted with blanket flower marquetry and a new short-handle tote is finished in burnished calfskin and stripe suede. Slinky knee socks match stack-heeled slingback loafers and peep-toe floral sandals.
