Designed by Silvia Venturini Fendi, Artistic Director of Accessories and Menswear, the collection is a perfect fusion of sophisticated comfort, relaxed opulence and the elegance of the unexpected. The designer sent out a wardrobe marked by classicism, with trompe-l’œil pieces that play with asymmetry and volume. Expressing exquisite craftsmanship, the House celebrates its hallmark materiality with double-faced cashmere, engineered leathers and jacquard silks. The sober palette undulates between shades of gray, oatmeal, burnt umber, mocha, mauve, lavender, navy and black. The Fendi astuccio motif is reimagined as Fendi Shadow, a larger-than-life logo woven into mohair scarves. For accessories, the Peekaboo evolves with bold metallic strap hardware and an all-leather Baguette bag is finished in suede or grained leather.
For its Fall-Winter 2023-24 men’s collection, the Parisian house unveiled a classic wardrobe in evolution. Artistic Director Matthew M. Williams spotlights a traditional approach to menswear adapted to a dressing culture founded in individual ideas of formality, ease and confidence. The collection rethinks tailoring, including four black suits created in the Haute couture atelier with unhemmed seams that unravel. A study of volumes continues with layered looks created with cropped sweatshirts or jerseys. A deconstruction of workwear is expressed in cargo trousers transformed into skirts or tartan kilts. This new masculinity takes form in an array of materials – denim, polyurethane-coated nylon, reversed sheepskin, tweed – with a color palette ranging from neon to pastels.
