Fendi fall winter 2015/2016 collection is inspired by the Swiss artist Sophie Taeuber-Arp, one of the most important artists of geometric abstraction of the 20th century.
Fendi didn’t follow the fashion mantra of street or vintage which are repeatedly displayed on the runway. “I had no time to go to the flea market,” Karl Lagerfeld said backstage at Fendi, expressing his position of anti-retro once again. Geometry and volumes are what interests him and Sylvia Venturini Fendi as shown in their fall 2015 collection.
An inventive new approach of inflated volumes defined the reference of circular of geometric abstraction, while the angular is expressed by the pieced-together panels found on coats, dress, pants, even the booties on the runway.
Patchworks added bright color blocks and panels to the furry booties, delivering a youthful insouciance with color contrast. The wedges are made with two parts, colorful Lucite block underneath look like ice sculpture and platform elevation goes from front to back. The brown welted leather sole with stitch detailing updated the design with an extravagant curvy line.
