On Day 4 of Paris Fashion Week, Kim Jones, Fendi Artistic Director of Couture and Womenswear, showcases the techniques and craft of couture. Presented in a white space bathed in bright light, the collection transforms an inner world into an external one. Négligé looks flirt with eveningwear. Reversible embroidered coats reveal shoulders. The savoir-faire of Fendi ateliers is expressed in the lightness of wafting muslin veils. Draped directly on the body, bustiers and lace reveal underwear, lending a sense of sculptural to the gowns, while luxe climbing carabiners tether pleats with virtuoso nonchalance. Gloves envelop hands like leather chainmail, and asymmetrical pearl earrings bring a theatrical allure to the gowns. Like a summer storm in the evening, a palette of cloud grey, bright white, powdery pink and metallic silver elevate delicately subtle couture.
