The look The late 1950s and early 1960s inspired Karl Lagerfeld’s designs for Fendi. A rich palette of tobacco, olive, teal green and navy made for a wonderfully cohesive offer, full of strong outerwear ranging from a roomy trench coat to fur coats.
Key pieces Coloured tights were styled with skirts and jackets, bucking the trend in an otherwise bare-legged Milan Fashion Week. Contrast zips and linings on turned-up sleeves, along with cinched-in details at the elbow offered a point of difference. Fur adorned necklines and coats.
Commercial appeal Outerwear had bags of commercial appeal with fur, shearling, trench coats and wool capes tapping into a number of trends. Extreme wide-legged trousers may be a harder sell. Coats with cinched sleeves had added design detail that will set Fendi apart for autumn 11.
