Fendi Women’s Ready to Wear Spring/Summer 2022

For his sophomore Ready to Wear show at Fendi, Kim Jones explores the joyful irreverence that has historically defined the house, alongside the empowered ease of his vision for its future. A modern perspective on disco-age glamour, and a spotlight on the diverse and powerful femininity that underscores the Fendi name.

Excavated from the archives, a logo hand-sketched by visionary fashion illustrator Antonio Lopez offered the starting point for a collection that draws upon the artist’s liberated sensibility and Studio 54 surroundings. “While I’ve been looking at Karl’s legacy at the house, I’ve also been looking around him, at his contemporaries – at who he was interested in,” explained Jones. “Lopez was a friend of Karl’s and has always been someone who inspired me. He was forward thinking; inclusive; looked up to by everyone from Andy Warhol to Steven Meisel and David Hockney. I wanted to introduce him to a new generation.”

In collaboration with the Estate and Archive of Antonio Lopez and Juan Ramos, now the artist’s work has been freshly revived. His gestural brushstrokes appear in elegant abstraction across cream kaftans and silken shirting; his figurative drawings translated into intarsia leathers, intricately engineered lace and shimmering jacquards. Fendi’s iconic bags become canvases both for his work and the renowned savoir-faire of the house’s ateliers: a Baguette tapestry-woven into a rainbow; a Peekaboo transformed into a graphic artwork. Lilies adapted from Lopez’s illustrative motifs become enamel hair accessories; Plexiglass hoops and degrade metals offer a tropical touch imbued with decadence. Encased in resin, the Fendi First heel is given a seventies spin; in shimmering leathers and saturated stripes, the Fendi First bag embodies a bold attitude. “This is my first live show for Fendi, and it’s a celebration,” reflects Jones. “Our woman has let loose a bit – she’s going out, dressing up. We’ve all been locked away for so long that I think that’s what we all need right now.”

The spirit of the women who Lopez often discovered on dance floors and always exalted in his work – Jerry Hall, Tina Chow, Pat Cleveland, Bianca Jagger, Grace Jones – introduce a high-octane energy, and a new dimension, into Jones’ continued celebration of female confidence. “My Fendi is multi-generational. It’s for all different kinds of women – anyone who wants to feel good about themselves,” the designer reflects. “The Lopez woman, and the Fendi woman, is empowered; she’s someone of her own making.”

La Colección  Primavera-Verano 2022 de FENDI

Para su desfile “Ready to Wear” de su segundo año en FENDI, Kim Jones, explora la irreverencia alegre que históricamente ha definido la casa, junto con la facilidad empoderada de su visión para el futuro. Una perspectiva moderna sobre el glamour de la era disco y un foco en la feminidad diversa y poderosa que subraya el nombre FENDI.

Excavado de los archivos, un logotipo esbozado a mano por el visionario ilustrador de moda, Antonio López, fue el punto de partida para una colección que se basa en la sensibilidad liberada del artista y los alrededores de Studio 54. “Mientras he estado mirando el legado de Karl en la casa Fendi, también he estado mirando a su alrededor, a sus contemporáneos, en quiénes estuvo interesado”, explicó Jones. “López era amigo de Karl y siempre ha sido alguien que me inspiró. El siempre pensaba en el futuro y fue admirado por todos, desde Andy Warhol hasta Steven Meisel y David Hockney. Yo quise introducirlo a una nueva generacion”.

En colaboración con “the estate” y los archivos de Antonio López y Juan Ramos, ahora la obra de este artista ha sido renovada con frescura. Sus pinceladas gestuales aparecen en elegante abstracción a través de caftanes color crema y camisas de seda; sus dibujos figurativos se tradujeron en pieles de intarsia, encajes de intrincados diseños y jacquards relucientes. Los icónicos bolsos de FENDI se convirtieron en lienzos tanto para su trabajo como para el renombrado savoir-faire de los talleres de la casa: un tapiz baguette tejido en forma de arcoíris; un Peekaboo transformado en una obra de arte gráfica.

Los lirios adaptados de los motivos ilustrativos de López se convirtieron en accesorios para el cabello esmaltados; Los aros de plexiglás y los metales degradados ofrecieron un toque tropical impregnado de decadencia. Revestido en resina, el tacón “FENDI First” recibe un giro de los setenta; con pieles relucientes y rayas saturadas, el bolso “FENDI First” encarna en una actitud atrevida. “Este es mi primer show en vivo para FENDI y es una celebración”, reflexiona Jones. “Nuestra mujer se ha soltado un poco, está saliendo, vistiéndose. Todos hemos estado encerrados durante mucho tiempo, por lo que creo es lo que todos necesitamos en este momento “.

El espíritu de las mujeres que López descubrió a menudo en las pistas de baile y que siempre exaltó en su trabajo (Jerry Hall, Tina Chow, Pat Cleveland, Bianca Jagger, Grace Jones) ahora nos introduce una energía de alto octanaje y una nueva dimensión en la celebración continua que hace Jones a la confianza femenina. “Mi FENDI es multigeneracional. Es para todo tipo de mujer, cualquiera que quiera sentirse bien consigo misma”, reflexiona el diseñador “La mujer López, y la mujer FENDI, es empoderada– es alguien creada por ella misma”.
