Today, Fendi gave us technicolour punk. Models emerged to the soundtrack of Prodigy's 'Firestarter' wearing fur mohawks – the first Keith Flint fashion tribute ever? – dressed head to toe in highly crafted, colourful and often sculptural designs. And not only did fur feature on most of the garments, but it appeared on the sides of glasses, on bags, and chokers. There was exceptionally beautiful 3D fur embroidery, printed ponyskin and braided mink, each look displaying innovative technical ability and a clever manipulation of raw material.
Fur often features for winter but Karl Lagerfeld and Silvia Venturini Fendi took to extremes, going beyond outerwear or subtle trim on a coat, to crafting A-line skirts, geometric patterned coats and a beautiful oversized braided piece that closed the show.
Rising to a crescendo, with the jagged, industrial Mondkopf's 'Ruins' on the soundtrack (which you can listen to below), for the past three seasons Fendi is on fire.
