PreFall 2016: Fendi

I always find Karl Lagerfeld’s work at Fendi to be a fascinating contrast to his Chanel shows. Where Chanel is overly self serious, over the top and grandiose, Fendi is just fun. Whether or not you fall on the side of the line that fur is a fashion accessory that should only be worn by the animal who grew it, or a fashion accessory for the high fashion woman who seems to have shaved off all of their own is not important here. (Though I’m sure activists would argue otherwise. What’s fascinating to watch is Lagerfeld’s whimsical lighter side.


Take, for instance, the shoes. They are hilarious. Platform sneakers, don’t in a saddle show type pattern, all made of fur. They are clownish, especially paired with a striped coat that looks like she’s a walking bear rug. With the socks pulled all the way up, there’s a clownish sense to all this, a willingness to make fun of itself, that Lagerfeld might display in the sets at Chanel, but never, ever the clothing.

The fun continues with the rest of the collection below.
