Fierce furs

FENDI

Hong Kong Tatler - - Style File -

One of the en­dur­ing images of Mi­lan Fash­ion Week was a wryly smil­ing Cara Delev­ingne del­i­cately hold­ing a minia­ture bag re­sem­bling cre­ative di­rec­tor Karl Lager­feld. Her large fur hood was a sig­na­ture look in a col­lec­tion de­scribed by Lager­feld as bru­tal and poetic. Fur was re­worked as cuffs; it dripped from sin­gle shoul­ders and was worn as a stole, fas­tened with chunky leather and shiny buck­les. It was used as em­bel­lish­ment for tops, dresses and coats with an­i­mal prints and even stripes. Patch­work was also popular and was cam­ou­flage-like in muted colours. Skirts were sporty or ro­man­tic, worn mid-thigh or long. Out­er­wear was bomber jack­ets in tweed and patent leather. The tough fab­rics were soft­ened by del­i­cate or­chids on shoul­ders—com­bin­ing the bru­tal and the poetic, just as Lager­feld in­tended.
