The Fendi show got an extra dimension this week. As the last Fendi collection designed by Karl Lagerfeld it felt bittersweet. Yet, as Silvia Venturini Fendi put it, this was not the time to be sad. And if anything the lighthearted collection spoke of joy and opportunism. Perfectly tailored pants, pleated skirts and a number of mesh (laser perforated fishnet leather, as you will) looks alternated each other. High heeled boots and high stiff collars (like the master used to wear them), colored sunnies, funky fur hats and office proof shoulder bags in the mix. The FF (Karl once introduced) that is selling like hot cakes right now came in a new font (used as a subtle print on tights, tops and a few fur coats) more graceful and old school this time around. For decades Karl Lagerfeld had put his all into designing for the Roman fashion house until this very last collection, which had all the right ingredients the Fendi woman could be looking for. Gigi closed the show in a sheer yellow frock through which the FF logo print dress she wore underneath was visible. Out with a bang. Thank you Karl.
