In a world where Italian Futurism meets tropical travel, the FENDI Spring/Summer 2018 Collection emerges in a swirl of Caribbean color and flavor.
Shades of ocean blue wash against seafoam green, coral pink and sand, as the silhouette drapes off the shoulder, nips at the waist and blooms into full skirts.
In a graphic play of diaphanous layers, the symmetry of stripes and checkerboard patterns is seen throughout: bowling shirts become organza blouses, and rugby polos or cable knits warp over candy striped knickers and bras.
Denim trench coats and cool poplin tops reveal shoulders and scrunch at the hip, as striped silk denim and pinstriped cotton skirts hug the waist high. Nude sequin separates shimmer as moments of craft unfurl in delicate fern leaf broderie anglaise, beaded organza philodendron and palm leaves, floral leather marquetry and fur floating on silk chiffon.
On foot, pointed mesh flats and pumps come adorned with tartan beading, surf straps and a rattan heel, whilst stocking boots collage the double F logo with Futurist florals.
The Spring/Summer 2018 marks the first appearance on the catwalk of the Mon Trésor bag, a mini bucket presented in luxurious exotic leather festooned with metallic pearls, and the new Runaway tote in transparent tartan mesh with rounded rattan handles.
The Kan I F bag returns trimmed in raffia fringes and worn with leafy suede Strap You handles. Monkey, banana and Bao-bug logo charms accent the Collection’s tropical feel.
