Model Doutzen Kroes, awash in a stark white oversized peacoat and headband, kicked off the Fendi show with a sense of artistic purism — symbolic of a break from the confines of massified trends.
A departure indeed from last winter season's dark spy-spirited theme, a mother nature, realist movement took hold of the Roman house in terms of leather looks that included a-line gardening aprons and oversized-pocketed pants big enough for shovels and grass-trimming scissors.
While more down-to-earth and in-touch with nature, this Fendi fashionista’s gardening gloves were fit for a true lady and fashioned with suede and trimmed in furs like mink or fox.
Architectonic and paneling techniques were splashed onto fur patterns, prints and complex leather combos and even footwear and accessories.
With the focus on outerwear, Fendi combined modern tech silhouettes and puffy Alpine ski attire with fur looks typical of their '70s heyday when they were the go-to furriers for the majority of upperclass Roman ladies and silver-screen stars. Ski bunny tech jackets were trimmed with gigantor furry collars and paired with fuzzy wedge booties, reminiscent of Cortina white ski weekend getaways.
Burnt orange and tobacco ensembles, as well as astrakhan trench coats, were also a salute to the house's 1970s glam days.
The iconic peek-a-boo bag was an unexpected protagonist; carrying delicate birds of paradise flowers to emphasize the nature theme and sense of geometric perfection, they were lined with suede or fur.
Kendall Jenner closed the show wearing a miniskirted abstract print, puffy winter outfit — the crowning piece of this collection fit for a jet set ski and sun kind of girl.
