#MFW: Fendi’s Spring/Summer 2014 Runway & BAGS Review!

With the show space wall panels in shades of grey and the runway in shades of beige coupled with the invitation in shades of orange,  Fendi really sort of gave us an inkling of what is to come for Spring/Summer 2014. However, it wasn’t until the show kicked off, that we really understood the entire concept.


As the show began, the sliding doors to the runway opened to reveal a waterfall panel with FENDI on it, which was the backdrop for the entire runway presentation. In comparison to past seasons, (remember the model busting through the ball, and the 3-D FF logos show sets?) the waterfall seemed rather simple.

Cara Delevingne opened the show with an organza dress in a degradé orange dress made of strip details – the exact same colours that was on the invitation. What was also apparent was that the shaggy helmet haircut wig that she sported, would be the hair that all the models would be “wearing” for the SS14 presentation. By the time the 3rd model appeared, it the theme was set: degradé colour-blocking (and I say colour blocking because for degradé, the colours usually bleed into one another) in the form of strips.

And of course, no Fendi show is ever complete without fur. This season, fur was in abundance (and dyed in various bright colours!) on accessories like cuffs and even the rings! Oh and remember the little monsters from Fall/Winter 2013? Well, they reprise their role on the runway again for SS14.


Psst: These were the furry rings I was talking about


As for the bags, they were mostly metallic leather with geometric details and adorned with the furry Fendi monsters. The FW13 trend of clutching totes and top handle bags with the palm like how you’d hold a clutch also made a comeback this season. My favourite bags, however, would be the totes with the geometric details right down the middle which resembled tabs on file/binder separators ala the SS14 invitation.
