un­even blocks, and or­ganza cutouts of shaved mink bring­ing on a rev­o­lu­tion­ary feel.

Fur and sheer or­ganza, the stars of the show, took on an un­de­ni­ably wear­able role: Fendi has made the im­pos­si­ble, pos­si­ble! Women who long to wear lux­u­ri­ous mink but live in 30-de­gree cli­mates are now able to amp up their wardrobes with a hint of it. The knee-length dresses, tops, and skirts with in­tri­cate mink cutouts of geo­met­ric pat­terns are per­fect for that sum­mer stroll along the Villa Borgh­ese or even for a night out in a hot Asian city, Hong Kong to Kuala Lumpur.

The renowned Fendi fur work­shop, a tem­ple of highly skilled ar­ti­sans, is where it all be­gan for this show-stop­ping la­bel that has el­e­vated fur to new heights with ground­break­ing tech­niques. “Fendi al­ways aligns in­no­va­tion with tra­di­tion,” says Pi­etro Bec­cari, CEO of Fendi, of the brand’s con­stant foray into the past, ex­pertly pick­ing Fendi’s quirky Bag Bug charm has ce­mented it­self as the new must-have, just like the It-bag of the ’ 90s, the Baguette, which be­came a cul­tural phe­nom­e­non. These furry lit­tle crea­tures made their ap­pear­ance a sea­son ago and now have a cult fol­low­ing, adorn­ing the bags of celebri­ties such as Cara Delev­ingne, Naomi Camp­bell, and Solange Knowles. A spe­cial edi­tion Bag Bug charm called Fu­nich ( an homage to the Ger­man city of Mu­nich) has been cre­ated in cel­e­bra­tion of Fendi’s bou­tique open­ing at 12 Max­i­m­il­ianstrasse, Mu­nich. an el­e­ment and mod­ernising it for the Fendi woman to­day.

In ad­di­tion to the 3D fur pat­terns, the dou­ble F lo­gos of the Six­ties, and shaved mink, Fendi ar­ti­sans have been busy tin­ker­ing away, teas­ing fur into an­i­mal-shaped bags and charms. In a spe­cial col­lab­o­ra­tion with an­other mem­ber of the il­lus­tri­ous fam­ily (none other than Del­fina Delet­trez Fendi), the fur has also Fur and feather dou­ble-fin­ger ring, Fendi Fu­nich Bag Bug charm, Fendi Fendi Spring/ Sum­mer ’14 made its mark on a jew­ellery collection. Re­mov­able splashes of deca­dent fur on crys­tal-em­bed­ded ac­ces­sories were an ex­quis­ite nod to the Twen­ties girl of the mod­ern era. If the great Gatsby were to throw a party in 2014, his guests would be dressed in noth­ing but Fendi Spring/ Sum­mer ’14. As con­tem­po­rary and fu­tur­is­tic as the collection looks, the art­ful com­bi­na­tion of ac­ces­sories gave it a time­less and el­e­gant spark. All in all, a pow­er­ful collection that clev­erly de­fines the bal­ance of an in­tel­li­gent, uniquely orig­i­nal Fendi woman.
