Opulence of colors
at Fendi


Fall/Winter 2011 RTW. Playing off female stereotypes, Karl Lagerfeld lets Fendi reappropriate some of the too well-behaved fundamentals of fashion. Fur or flower-shaped frills flatter a leather dress or satin blouse. As touches of color on a tweed coat, the tartan prints liven up the silhouettes dressed in biting colors...

True to its own codes, Fendi displays luxury and opulence in the materials—fur, leather, Shetland, tweed, satin—which have been revitalized for this collection by the unexpected color contrasts of orange tights, saffron pumps, an azure-blue bag and multi-colored furs. In the evening, bewitching dark-colored dresses–in black or midnight blue–dare to play with transparencies.
