Structured and Sophisticated White Shirts for Fendi Autumn/Winter 2025
We bring you highlights from the Fendi collection for the new autumn/winter 2015 season from Milan Fashion Week. First, take a look at the models finishing hair and makeup being photographed backstage before enjoying the exquisite runway show which featured oversized quilted coats, voluminous dresses, tabard pinafores and long lean forms.
Fashion One speaks to Fendi womenswear creative director, the iconic Karl Lagerfeld, who talks passionately about the garments and confesses he wishes he could have been the person who invented the classic white shirt. He describes the shirt as an extremely sophisticated bullet proof vest that we see everywhere on the street. This is re-invented in the collection with leather panels, and sharp sculptured collars and cuffs.
Silvia Venturini Fendi, creative director of the Fendi menswear line and accessories, talks about the influence of Swiss artist Sophie Taeuber-Arp, her graphic design work of rectangles and vertical lines being used on skirts, dresses, coats and bags in the collection, as well as these shapes being echoed in the silhouettes. Lagerfeld also speaks about the shearling furs used in the coats and accessories and gives respect and credit to Fendi CEO Pietro Beccari.
Beccari himself is extremely happy with the Fendi brand today, a place where reportedly all the staff are happily working together, and there is intense competition amongst models to walk for the prestigious luxury brand.
