Fendi

WARRIORS OF THE FUTURE
Milan: Karl Lagerfeld’s latest collection for Fendi was entitled “Icons Unchained,” and the F/W 13 looks were certainly brash and unrestricted, full of the label’s signature furs remade with punky energy. Collaged, spliced and colorblocked, shaved fur silhouettes were simple and rectangular with round shoulders, while bottoms appeared sporty and young, made up of kilt miniskirts or comfortable, tapered track pants. Outerwear designs centered on a modern wrap technique, with coats constructed from wool on one side and fur on the other, cinched together with a basic belt strap. Lagerfeld’s playful zest and drama came from looped and fringed detailing, giving the entire presentation a sense of shaggy movement, and bright bolts of cobalt or neon fuchsia, as well as mohawk fur headpieces, made for futuristic Tron-style warriors.—Nina Stotler
