For Pre-Fall, Fendi took inspiration from a book on 19th-century French ironwork gates and an antique tome on men’s Japanese kimonos. The collection’s dialogue between curlicued baroque graphics and almost inconspicuous exotic micro patterns was a virtuoso exercise in decorative bravura.


To counterbalance the abundance of surface ornamentation, shapes were kept strict, tailored, and masculine, highlighting the play on opposites that is one of Fendi’s compelling style traits. Coats and double-breasted blazers were cut sharp, severe, and elongated, often boasting quirky asymmetrical lapels.


Softened with discreet mink details and sometimes cinched at the waist for a feminine hourglass silhouette, they were worn over sensual see-through dresses or with full-circle, swirling plissé skirts. (vogue.com)
