Couture Fashion Week: Fendi Fall 2017 Collection
Fendi is an Italian luxury fashion house whose specialties include fur, leather goods, shoes, fragrances, eyewear and timepieces. Founded in 1925 in Rome, Fendi is renowned for its fur and fur accessories.
Karl Lagerfeld, the creative director, marked Fendi’s third haute couture show, the second in Paris after last year’s 90th anniversary celebration in Rome.
The curtain rose announcing a collection in which designer Karl Lagerfeld conjured a field of magical flowers. The blue poppies, blue mink versions and the velvet flowers of Bella Hadid’s otherwise sheer blue dress were just marvelous. In keeping with the theme, some of the models carried clever flower basket bags.
The show ended in traditional haute couture form with the bride. Vittoria Ceretti’s wedding dress was embroidered in several different motifs. The most astounding was the lattice of the attached shawl. It was created with 9,000 tiny discs that took 1,250 hours to hand sew.
