Wallpaper* Design Awards 2011
As fashion shifted into wistful, genteel mode, Karl Lagerfeld at Fendi injected softness and fluidity into the Roman fashion house. Fur, Fendi's speciality since 1925, is enjoying a renaissance - particularly the type that doesn't boast extreme wealth but instead carries the nonchalance of an old overcoat or outdoorsy jacket. Lagerfeld's rustic-looking A-line gilets and patchwork creations in mink, sable, breitschwanz, leather and suede all had a shrug-on lightness only made possible by the magic fingers of Fendi's craftsmen. Cut-away jackets, 1970s-tinged midi-length skirts in soft ochre tweeds and charcoal wool, and mid-calf wellington boots completed the autumn/winter Fendi look.
