Following Kim Jones’s debut ready-to-wear collection, Fendi returns with an in-person runway show this week. The AW21 collection was an extremely chic affair that saw Jones remix and rework iconic house styles in a luxurious palette of neutrals and upcycled fur and we can’t wait to see what he has next in-store––watch the show live on Fendi.com and check back below for a post-show review.
Kim Jones’s first live Fendi show was a playful celebration of letting loose and going out. Against the backdrop of a seventies-tinged modern-age disco, models strutted through repeating rows of mirrored Palazzo arches to reveal a decadent collection dedicated to the empowered modern-day woman and the diverse notions of femininity that punctuates brand identity.
The show began with a series of white-on-white ensembles––a summer classic––via slouchy-sleek multi-layered tailoring, flowing kaftans and fur coats that gradually began to change like a gradient, to cream, grey and pink emboldened by colourful graphic prints that were inspired by the works of visionary fashion illustrator Antonio Lopez. Turns out, a hand-sketched logo by the Picasso of fashion illustration had been the starting point of the collection.
“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,” Jones explained. “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”.
