Karl Lagerfeld presented his latest designs for Fendi’s fall/winter 2017-18 season earlier this afternoon at Milan Fashion Week, bringing an ultra-polished array of staples on stage. also confirmed three of next season’s hottest trends, of course, here revisited through Lagerfeld’s visionary lens.
The first thing that literally popped out to our eyes was the great amount of fiery reds Karl Lagerfeld colored both his clothing staples and accessories with, a shade used in many other designer collections for fall, as done, for instance, earlier this morning by Ian Griffiths for his latest Max Mara fall 2017 collection, too. Lagerfeld’s focus on red was so strong, he even decided to create total-red looks one cannot help but be obsessed with.
the Fendi fall 2017 line-up was so refined and polished, all of its items exuded one-of-a-kind elegance that also evoked some of the fashion house’s vintage legacies, specifically expressed through the tailored mannish suits, long coats and a-line skirts.
For this reason, short crop-tops were to be found along with high-waisted skirts, while flared skirts got harmonized either by curve-hugging waistcoats or belts cinched at the waists. The collection’s fabrics were architecturally balanced too, with luxurious fur being paired with glam-rock patent leather, and sensual see-through appliqués being combined with soigné velvets and jerseys.
