The silhouettes designed by Silvia Venturini Fendi, Artistic Director of Accessories and Menswear were unveiled on a runway between brushed steel FF monogrammed benches by Nico Vascellari at FENDI headquarters in Milan.
The geometric path of the Fall/Winter 2024-2025 collection plays with shadows and light as FENDI welcomes a new masculine figure drawn to the pursuits of the great outdoors, energized by the swagger of the city. The spirit of the Scottish kilt is imbued across the collection in long pleated shorts worn over grain leather Wellington boots and checked skorts. Autumnal nature defines the palette with peat and granite, burnt umber, coal and forest green, set off by bright swaths of blues, cherry, grass green, canary yellow or cloud gray.
Generous outerwear shapes have raglan shoulders and Selleria leather collars, with accents in suede corduroy. Waxed jackets in FF cotton canvas are joined by bombers and peacoat shapes. Accessories elevate a dialogue between tradition and technology. A new iteration of the Peekaboo ISeeU and a futuristic sneaker are the fruit of collaboration with the architecture studio Ma Yansong/MAD Architects. And the FENDI x DEVIALET Mania portable handheld speaker is an acoustic jewel, ready to deliver amazing sound, day or night. Brooches by Artistic Director of Jewelry Delfina Delettrez Fendi shimmer with glossy satin and lurex. Bags include a new Siesta model as soft as a pillow for little pause between outings in town or country.
