Fendi Cruise/Resort 2013


New York: Karl Lagerfeld presented one his most playful Fendi collections to date for resort. The typically prim and proper Fendi woman broke out of her shell this season, with sexy thigh slits, eye-catching prints and kooky/fabulous fur coats. The prints were inspired by Vienna Secessionist artist Leopold Stolba. The loopy floral borrowed from his work was used for dresses and tops and was even dyed into a fur coat. Lagerfeld also included a more businesslike graph paper motif and Lego-inspired geometrics. Subtle seventies references could be felt in the embellished silk tops, high-waisted shorts and midi lengths. A hot pink shaggy fur was the perfect embodiment of the new liveliness exhibited this season. One could imagine Anna Dello Russo driving the bloggers wild in it. –Joanna Manganaro
