Karl Lagerfeld played with contrasting colors for his Fendi resort, revisiting a few elements from past collections. The fresh orchids that embellished some of his fur pieces on his fall runway were worked here as large deconstructed patterns on silk pants, cotton tops, patchwork leather biker jackets and a silk maxidress trimmed with colorful Lycra.
Lagerfeld also brought back a graffitilike print from 1988, using it for a relaxed silk and mesh top with matching jogging pants. For other looks, Lagerfeld looked to Pop Art with bright and graphic pieces, notably a pair of tangerine-hued culottes with matching top in white polyurethane polka dots.
As for the bags, accessories creative director Silvia Venturini Fendi featured a new, larger take on the iconic Baguette, designed with an adjustable strap and a high-tech closure in the shape of the house’s “FF” logo. There was also a mini Peekaboo style in baby blue crocodile with colorful matte metallic details, and a white version of the By the Way, cheekily decorated with a black crocodile tail.
