Dear Shaded Audiences,
This season’ s much anticipated haute couture show by Betty Jones for Fendi will be finally here.
Jones arrives at Fendi following the passing of Karl Lagerfeld who held the position associated with Artistic Director for Womenswear at Fendi for fifty four years and rather than venturing around the world and gathering inspirations, for his first selection Jones decided to look in house, “This first collection seems almost autobiographical. What I am referencing feels really individual. ” he explained within an interview with Vogue. The end result was 19 looks motivated by the Bloomsbury Group within Charleston, Sussex close to in which the designer spent most of their childhood.
The particular show was presented being a Fendi maze made of cup held in the Palais Brongniart with a star studded catwalk including Jones’ s good friends Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Bella Hadid, Cara Delevingne, Christy Turlington and Demi Moore… A great choice of toss for a digital presentation that requires much attention from social media marketing channels, but I must acknowledge, it was distracting staying centered on what the models were putting on while wondering which celebrity was going to come out next.
The collection had been paying homage to Va Woolf’ s gender-blurring new “ Orlando”. It experienced poetic, feminine, romantic… coming in contact with the reality of what females expect of couture. High-class in a restrained and noiseless manner that still will pay respect to the heritage associated with Fendi and the deeply encoded values of family. The particular half suit dress used by Adwoa Aboah has been based on a sketch simply by Karl Lagerfeld found in the particular Fendi archives and most of the cast who strolled the show, the developer considered as part of his style family. The collection furthermore featured men’ s fashion which was harmonised with sensuality, further exploring the absolute depths of gender fluidity. Although all the 19 looks had been different, I must confess, the particular shall-collar coat decorated along with rose pedals and the declaration oversized earrings immediately reminded me of the iconic Italian language designer Romeo Gigli.
“Fendi is all about family members … I am surrounded simply by strong, powerful women who else I love and respect, and wish to bring their energy straight into what I do. ” stated Jones. With such a little collection, though it is hard to make out the designer’ s i9000 vision on womenswear, we have been hungry to see what this individual comes up with next.
