Fendi Ready-to-Wear SS22

The first day of Milan Fashion Week opened, among others, with Fendi. Kim Jones brought on the catwalk about fifty pieces for the spring-summer 2022, on the notes of Moodyman’s Shades of Jae.

The collection is structured logically, so that the transition between one color and the other takes place without burrs. On the garments stand out the illustrations of Antonio López mixed with fabrics.

White is the opening color, on evening gowns and suits with very classic and clean silhouettes. From these, you can clearly see also the collaboration between Silvia Venturini Fendi and Delfina Delettrez Fendi. The white fades almost in marble, recalling the Palazzo della Civiltà, the headquarter of the Italian maison.

Peculiar are the plissé garments, the maxi boots and the tight silhouettes highlighted by the leather belts.

Antonio López’s illustrations were applied to the fabric through abstract figures, oversize brushstrokes on garments from the ’70s; very interesting is also the work of abstractionism created on an illustration by Jane Forth on 4 jacquard looks. Furthermore, some illustrations are the starting point for the color change, becoming more and more vivid towards the end of the parade.

The last garments of the collection in fact, have abstract illustrations, the silhouettes are softer and the combinations of colors are more lively and appealing; some influences of the ’70s are especially noticeable in the feathered mini dresses, in soft kaftans, in boots with leather intarsia.

Speaking about the relationship between López and fashion, Jones explained: “He was a big, big fashion influencer for a lot of people, but is not so talked about. He had this relationship with Karl and with Fendi, and he helped shape so many strong visions of women, because he loved them: that feels very authentic and topical”.

There are also other references to the past, to Fendi’s archives; the diagonal striped prints applied on the silk – which used to be the background to the logo – and a marabou jacket combined with a pair of rose gold silk pants. The historical references are many, but as always, Jones managed to make them modern through the unmistakable signature of his style.
