MFW: Fendi Fall/Winter 2009

Fendi this season marched to a very serious beat. Clothes being mostly dark and reserved, with hits of a crimson red. Models paraded in sharp, square shoulders and raw textures. Which were minute dustings of fur or mohair and treated semi-destroyed flannel, burned-out chiffon, and cashmere. The collection showed strong silhouettes and high end luxurious furs, of course. Mink furs had been designed with clinged white gold (extraordinary isn't it?). What I noticed in this collection was the absence of furs being the central grand emphasis, some past seasons, Fendi showed collections that like fur was EVERYWHERE. This season, Karl Lagerfeld and Silvia Venturini really embraced Fendi's more Ready-To-Wear appeal, not just Fendi's fur crafting skills.
