FENDI Womenswear Fall /Winter 2024: Ode to London and Rome

In the ever-evolving world of fashion, where threads intertwine narratives of history and contemporary flair, the latest collection of FENDI emerges as a testament to the fusion of diverse influences. As Kim Jones, the Artistic Director of Couture and Womenswear, delves into the archives, a journey through time unfolds, resonating with echoes of 1984 London and the aristocratic elegance of Rome.

FENDI’s Heritage Revived

“I was looking at 1984 in the FENDI archives. The sketches reminded me of London during that period,” Jones muses, drawing parallels to the Blitz Kids and the New Romantics, where British subcultures mingled with global influences, birthing a style that exuded both defiance and sophistication. It’s a sentiment encapsulated in FENDI’s DNA, where utility meets extravagance, and simplicity dances with theatricality.

FENDI Collection: Contrasts Unveiled

At the heart of this collection lies a celebration of contrasts, where utilitarian elements are elevated to statements of intent. The rigid lines of tailoring give way to a softer silhouette, blending graphic precision with sumptuous comfort. Knitwear, a quintessential British staple, undergoes a transformation, seamlessly intertwining tradition with modernity.

Throughout the collection, FENDI’s past reverberates in recurring motifs, paying homage to its rich heritage. The Selleria, a symbol of craftsmanship and tradition, takes center stage, weaving its way into garments and leather goods alike. From leather riding boots to statement bangles adorned with metal thread hardware, each piece narrates a story of timeless elegance and artisanal prowess.

Silvia Venturini Fendi’s Vision

Silvia Venturini Fendi, the Artistic Director of Accessories and Menswear, breathes new life into iconic designs, deconstructing and reimagining past styles. The Peekaboo, Baguette, and By The Way bags undergo a metamorphosis, embracing tactility and utility in rich, natural hues. Yet amidst this transformation, there’s a recognition that there’s not just one FENDI woman, but a multitude, each finding herself in the garments she chooses to wear.

In essence, FENDI’s latest collection is more than just a showcase of sartorial mastery; it’s a testament to the intertwining of cultures, histories, and identities. It’s a celebration of individuality, where London’s nonchalance meets Rome’s freedom, and where each stitch tells a story of defiance and elegance.
