Fendi Spring 2015 Ready to Wear.

Silvia Venturini Fendi and Karl Lagerfeld.

Fendi’s new Roman headquarters is the Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana, built under Mussolini. Its Square Colosseum configuration was the inspiration for today’s set, and when Silvia Venturini Fendi talked about the collection being “on the road,” she meant the high velocity that is sweeping Fendi into the future. A new technique that managed to inset strips of fabric without stitching (or something of that sort) to create the kind of seamless, streamlined effect. Karl Lagerfeld has become paterfamilias to a whole tribe of bright, and very excitable, young things. The collection that he and Silvia do together has taken on a character not like any Fendi that’s come before. A new era of printed, woven, embroidered, appliquéd, and even sculpted from suede for Spring 2015.
