Expressive freedom for Fendi Fall/Winter 2024

Fashion & Leather Goods


With a backdrop of theatrical curtains, the silhouettes created by Fendi, Artistic Director of Couture and Womenswear Kim Jones simultaneously channeled Roman elegance and British style, both infused with unbridled freedom.    

Fendi’s 1984 archives provided the creative spark for this new collection. Inspired by the amalgam of genres, mixing utilitarian outfits and sumptuous fabrics, Kim Jones continues to articulate his vision of Fendi women. Uniting opposites, the silhouettes bridge utilitarian and extravagant, town and country.  

In an autumnal palette dominated by warm browns and Bordeaux, leather riding boots and thigh-high boots elongate the silhouettes. Coats borrows plush comfort from bathrobes, and wools employed traditional British styles such as the Aran and Guernesey. Sleek second skin knitwear or utilitarian dresses express a nonchalant feminine sensuality.  

Roman statuary embraces movement in prints or embroidery with gossamer transparency. The statues impart ethereal élan in tulle and organza. The Selleria stitch ties the present to the past as a motif on clothing and accessories, including the delightfully startling Chupa Chups® lollipop holder, as well as jewels from the collection designed by Delfina Delettrez Fendi, Artistic Director of Jewelry, who also created wide stackable bracelets and giant chains to encircle the neck. Bags designed by Silvia Venturini Fendi, Artistic Director of Accessories and Menswear, feature the new Simply and Roll models which can be worn in a vast variety of ways, underscoring the multiplicity of Fendi women.
