FENDI COUTURE

Roman splendour, princess gown silhouettes and era-defying references: Kim Jones looks to the cultural impact of director Pier Paolo Pasolini for his latest collection.

Kim Jones has been a busy man as of late. After the reveal of his hypebeast dreamland at the Dior x Cactus Jack show, it would be fair to say that he deserved a break. But, in a bid to prove that his dedication to the fashion calendar knows no bounds, the design maverick unveils the Fendi AW21 Couture collection in Rome.

Taking to the cobbled streets of the Eternal City, the designer chose a sunset-infused backdrop depicting the marbled stone buildings synonymous with Rome’s enchanting skyline to set the tone of the show. With the work of the famed Roman film director Pier Paolo Pasolini at the helm of this collection’s inspiration, Jones looked to blend eras as clashing textures and restored garments refused to be defined by a specific time. And, if the Luca Guadagnino-shot film did not already allude to the timeless nature of the show, the scenes of Christy Turlington, Amber Valletta and Kate Moss modelling the collection made it abundantly clear.

Filling out the collection were princess gown silhouettes as an air of Roman regality was achieved through displays of fluttering tulle, feather detailed dresses and sparkling ombré ensembles. And while florals may not be groundbreaking for spring, they most certainly are for this autumnal collection as intricate embroidery culminated in pastel bloom motifs and floral prints playfully filled with snake print.

When speaking on his collection, Kim Jones recalled, “Rome is a fascinating city because it has so many pasts – and I was drawn to Pasolini because I have always been inspired by his vision of the world. He is something of an outsider in Roman history, but one whose voice remains constant.”
