|“In my fantasy world, he is the only man related to Fendi. So yes, he is the man in my life.” Silvia Venturini
Acknowledging close to a lifetime of mentorship and mutual respect, the Men’s Fall/Winter 2019-2020 Show sees Karl Lagerfeld’s integral artistic vision of FENDI as its main source of inspiration in a one-time, exclusive collaboration. With Silvia Venturini the Creative Director of Fendi, Lagerfeld’s hand can be seen across the collection, from the rigorous cut of a tailored shoulder to the palette of sharp blacks and classic neutrals with a metallic sheen. Channelling a shared sense of humour, witty trompe l’oeil effects abound: zippers bifurcate sleeves, knits or coat backs, and silk organza poses lightness against leather and fur.
