The starting point of Kim Jones’ collection for Fendi was seeing Delfina Delettrez in the Rome office wearing a Memphis-print blouse she had nicked from the closet of her mother, Silvia Venturini Fendi. “I took it off her back and put it on the research rail”, he said. Then, he combined those references with a callback to another Lagerfeld-designed Fendi chiffon-centric one from 2000.

“The best place to explore the Fendi archives is through the Fendi wardrobes”, Jones said in shownotes. “And these are collections which, although they come from the past, feel very now”.
The result was a 51-look collection, which oozed effortless Italian glamor and sophistication, while still communicating a sense of youthfulness.
Models wore checked trousers, high-waisted skirts and corset-like shirts. Jackets were cropped, trousers slim and belts were pocketed to carry phones. As a continuation of Fendi’ Fall/Winter 2022 menswear collection, the “O’Lock” print was applied to select outfits.
As for handbags, the runway celebrated the 25th anniversary of the iconic Baguette with three revived editions: in cashmere, shearling-lined leather and intarsia mink.
