FENDI

Menswear A/W 2013









If Fendi's forecast is anything to go by, this winter's going to be a cold one. In a circular runway, models strode clad in thick furs, over-sized wool coats and leather accessories. This is a first in its kind - at least in the shows I've been to - with a circular construction of stairs and gangways, combining the runway glare with the practicality of a presentation. 

Staying true to the ethos of Fendi, the artisanal skill was on display in the cuts and materials, with a slight raw edge to it: the unlined coats and the rugged edges of the furs gave the collection a slightly out-in-the-wild touch. The colour palette did not stray further than the dark tones of the leathers and furs, giving the garments an earthy aesthetic. The collection resembled an Icelandic panorama, beautifully translated into clothing, and with some slick tailoring to boot.
