AW15 : Fendi

I always look forward to Fendi shows, mostly based on the fact that the collection has been designed by Karl Lagerfeld and Silvia Venturini Fendi. Lagerfeld is my favourite creative director in fashion, and I love that he brings diversity to all 3 of his brands (Chanel, Fendi and Karl Lagerfeld). It's refreshing (and admirable) how he can come up with 3 collections every season. 

Like Chanel, Fendi has always given its clients the typical Lagerfeld vibe. However, it's more modern, asymmetric and sharp. Thats what I like so much about it. Sometimes, the collection is as if its been inspired buy the future, but is still so so wearable. Thats very difficult to achieve as a creative director!
   The collection started with all white looks, firstly modelled by Doutzen. From oversized coats, to beautiful tailored blouses - Fendi really embraced the office chic vibe, which is always nice to wear if you want to look smart and professional - yet stylish. Red and Tans were also incorporated onto the colour palette of the collection which really gave the looks a gorgeous autumn feel. The collection was much different than the SS15 one in the previous season. Lagerfeld definitely brought a more masculine look to this collection, which has been so popular within the women's collections for AW for decades. The collection had no reprising of florals or soft pastels - but more harsh blacks and gorgeous tans.

The thing that did stay the same was Lagerfeld's tendency to bring the collections to life with captivating bags. His bags are always the centre of attention when the looks take the runway. Lagerfeld himself described it as "pleasant aggressivity". He was spot on. Exaggerating on the word, "agressivity" Lagerfeld definitely showed this with his crisp black leather designs. The puffiness of the coats were certainly something different which no other collection has presented within this fashion month, and I can already tell they will be a huge hit this AW - especially as they look so warm!
