Milan: Silvia Venturini Fendi collection combined an impressive array of innovative designs with luxurious textures and fabrications. Fendi’s manipulation of material was exquisite – shearling was etched to look like corduroy, 3-D pinstripes were laser cut and fur appeared to be brushed and spiked on hooded jackets. The craftsmanship was remarkable – shearling peaked from sweater seams and real corduroy was patched onto tailored blazers and outerwear. There were some classic pieces too – patched Harris Tweed suits and suede trenches worked nicely when combined with sport-inspired shearling jackets and cropped trousers. Other highlights were the fully reversible outerwear, striped knits and the long scarves with oversized pockets. – Diego Sanchez
