As another week in September draws to a close, many of us are looking towards the weekend in search of some respite. But, this is most definitely not the case for the fashion world. Riding off of the coat-tails of the always glamorous London Fashion Week, the industry has now descended upon the cobbled streets of Milan to enjoy another set of Fashion Week festivities. And, while many shows are highly anticipated throughout the Italy-based affair, arguably one of the most sought-after collections of the season is FENDI’s.
With the mastermind that is Kim Jones being called on to craft this year’s Ready To Wear Women’s SS22 display for the Italian house, onlookers at its most recent catwalk were treated to a dose of disco fever as the coveted designer rummaged around in both the archives and the depths of Karl Lagerfeld’s legacy for inspiration. And, as the glamour of the Studio 54-era presented itself in modern form, a celebratory tone for the feminity-focused affair was set.
“This is my first live show for FENDI, and it’s a celebration. Our woman has let loose a bit – she’s going out, dressing up. We’ve all been locked away for so long that I think that’s what we all need right now,” explains Kim Jones when speaking on the joyous theme of his newest collection.
