Fendi Marches on Without Karl Lagerfeld

Fendi Marches on Without Karl Lagerfeld

The last collection Karl Lagerfeld designed for Fendi was shown in February earlier this year. Although the Italian brand has since presented a resort, men's and couture offering, this was the first ready-to-wear runway show for women that's been completely under Silvia Venturini Fendi's purview. There was a sunny disposition in the air, as the entrance of the runway resembled an early morning sunrise. It was indeed a new dawn for Fendi, and the optimistic outlook trickled into the summer-ready clothes. Here's everything else you need to know about the collection.

Cool Quilting

Lightweight quilted jackets in soft colors provided some nice usage of texture mixing.

Tropic Thunder

Tropical jungle and floral prints in green, orange and yellow colors fit the sunny theme of the show.

Check Mate

Mini check and gingham patterns made up a significant portion of the collection.

Sheer Show

Transparent floor-length dresses and sheer skirts were worn over swim suits and other under garments.

Safari Trip

Earthy hues and tan colorways dominated most of the show, with many looks resembling safari gear and outdoor fashion.
