Texture was the word of the season at Fendi, as Karl Lagerfeld and Silvia Venturini Fendi fused natural fur, wool and velvet with high-shine PVC and rubber. This was a merging of old and new, traditional and modern, with Fendi hoping to create something of the unexpected. This was successful for the most part; the silhouette was intriguing and left us wanting to know more, get close and observe the craftsmanship. Silhouettes were either straight and boxy or super cinched with wide belts emphasising the waist, balancing out voluminous sleeves and structured shoulders. The palette was varied, but generally muted with grey, mole brown, forest green and aubergine peppered with flashes of canary yellow in playful fur coats that closed this rich and tactile show that, whether intentionally or not, ticked many of the season’s key trends.
