Milan Fashion Week SS 2021. Fendi brings rediscovered time to the stage

Fendi has brought a women’s and men’s wardrobe made of shadows and reflections to the Milanese catwalks, as explained by Silvia Venturini Fendi, who added that her source of inspiration was the time rediscovered, by her and many others during the lockdown, at contact with the family and the different generations gathered in the Roman house.

Thus a set of stories and suggestions unfolds, evoked by the palette played on the shades of wheat, honey, milk and coffee, with generous doses of sky blue, red and “cinematic” black and white. Windows and architectural elements are a leitmotif imprinted on the garments, often transparent like the long and fluttering chemisiers.

Among the materials, linen, a symbol of purity, takes center stage together with cotton, feathers, fur and small down quilts.

The flavor of tradition is felt in the linear jour d’echelle embroideries, in the ajouré blooms and in a formality that is progressively deconstructed: see the flared tunics and trompe l’oeil sweaters with imprinted tailoring details, while the back of the coats and sleeves shirts are unbuttoned.


The duchess silk aprons are contrasted by perforated furs and linen with washed-out floral prints.

Among the accessories stand out the new versions of the Baguette and Pekaboo bags in floral fur and ajouré cotton, embellished with embroidered silk veils and with the FF logo in quilted leather.

The baskets in recycled PVC alternate with small picnic-style baskets and canvas suitcases. Worth mentioning is the Baguette Hand in Hand project, which celebrates Italian craftsmanship with a Baguette handmade in Abruzzo, made of Aquilan bobbin lace starched in sugar (a technique that descends from the Benedictine nuns since the fifteenth century), and with another Baguette, also handmade but in the Marche region, woven in natural willow threads and inspired by the baskets of local fishermen.
