Fendi turns the catwalk into a stage for its arthouse persona

  • Plans for the Caravaggio Research Institute, to be founded by Fendi in partnership with Rome’s Galleria Borghese, were announced this month. “This is a very interesting project for Italy and Rome and for Fendi to bring the beauty of the Italian capital and of Caravaggio around the world,” said Beccari. He described the painter as “very modern and an innovator”, adding that “these are values shared with Fendi”. In November, Caravaggio masterpieces will travel from Rome to LA for an exhibition at the Getty Museum.

    On the Milan catwalk, Fendi’s arthouse persona showed up in the asymmetric kingfisher blue fringes and bold stripes of eye makeup sported New Romantic-style by the models. Sheer, striped midi dresses in moss green and petrol blue were worn with decorative flat sandals with stretch surf straps – a luxe take on the utility walking sandal, which is emerging as a trend for next summer.

    A trench coat came in organza, which perhaps makes more sense in the Italian climate than the British, but which was seductive in its showcasing not just of the ribbed bodycon dress underneath but also in its own immaculate seams and tailoring. The trends emerging for next season were ticked off as models emerged: the trouser suit; a fitted “body” tucked into a long-line skirt, and a ribbed vest with a ”carwash” skirt. (Think of a long skirt cut into the vertical ribbons of a drive-in carwash, and you get the idea.)

    Collection notes described these clothes as being for when “business and pleasure blur”, which is fashion week speak for outfits that you can wear to the office, and then to dinner. A ribbed racer-back top with flat-front trousers and a blazer looked, crucially, like an outfit that would transition effortlessly from the catwalk to the real world.
