Fendi Fall/Winter 2022 Show: Lightness & Transparency Trend
The Fendi's Fall / Winter 2022-23 collection will be dominated by a transparent trend...
Fendi has officially started Milan Fashion Week: “It’s a wardrobe designed for every aspect of a woman’s life, for every generation. And it all started with Delfina” Kim Jones noted in the press release for the Fendi Fall/Winter 2022-2023 collection.
One year after his debut, the designer Kim Jones proves to master the aesthetic codes of the Roman brand with more ease: the Fall/Winter 2022-23 collection, designed with Silvia Venturini Fendi, moves between inheritance and experimentation. Next winter will be dominated by a transparent trend: intangible dresses like lingerie with a clear late-90s flavor, bustiers that shape jackets and dresses, and leather boots.
The new Fendi winter collection plays on contrasts: leather bustiers worn over blue jeans and elegant coats that open over petticoat dresses.
The femininity of chiffon meets leather, denim and the inevitable fur details. The collection is balanced between the buttoned collars and the romanticism of floral, light and floating dresses. As mentionned, transparencies have dominated the show: dresses, shirts and even trousers play on the see-through effect.
Consequently, the color palette also lightens and fades into mid-tones: powder blue, gray, pale pink, sage green, ice. Kim Jones’ first collections were dominated by absolute colors worn from head to toe – white, black, beige – while now the palette is enriched with chromatic contrasts: green and beige, red and pink, blue and brown. The “early millennium” influences emerge in the collection among the minibag-shaped pendants and patchwork-effect dresses that will remind teenagers of the 2000s.
Elbow-length gloves, which can be worn in different colors, and fur-effect bags were the go-to accessories. The accessories were designed by Silvia Venturini Fendi, who relaunched the mini-bags to wear on the wrist, while the jewels are the work of Delfina Delettrez, including the gold key-shaped earrings with the logo’s Golden F.
