For a fashion house known for its fur, Fendi went in the opposite direction this time around for her men fall collection. Well, let’s not overstate here, there was fur, just see that decked out number with a hood… Or those straight out of the Icelandic Forest fur high boots. Otherwise the exercise was delightfully one of restraint and rough masculinity. The overcoat is definitely a must for the Fall season and here we had different renditions including the astrakhan, the bomber we just mentioned, a cape. Yup. Anoraks as well as straight forward cabans. Oh and did we mention that walking yeti abominable snowman-fallen-in-an-ink-well shag coat? We’ll pass. We loved the heavy knits. As well as certain details, like fusing tartan with a simple red cotton shirt and having the tie follow the gradual patter change. Otherwise it was a great start for Silvia Fendi who commissioned Matthew Herbert, who mixed rhythms in his minimal style out of the sound of the models as they walked on by. Pretty cool, at least for the fashion and musical aficionados out there.
