New York: Youthful yet restrained, Fendi’s Pre-Fall made girlish silhouettes look serious. Focusing on dropped waist dresses and silk blouses, these pieces wouldn’t ruffle any fashion feathers, and as a result, seemed a bit lackluster. A muted palette of ice blue and camel didn’t help elevate even the more interesting items, such as a pieced leather motorcycle jacket, mixed pattern shift with tulle overlay or delicate embroidered cardigan. A few successfully dramatic pieces did appear to close the presentation, including a frothy, pleated cocktail dress and floor-length, cornflower blue gown reminiscent of Rodarte’s recent work. —Nina Stotler
