Fashion has fallen irresistibly in love with the resurgence of velvet all over again. When it comes to pushing the boundaries of this goldmine of a textile, Fendi walks the path less travelled to wondrous results. The Autumn/Winter ’16 collection was its take on a whimsical romance, wrapped up in electrifying shades of dancing waves, anime flora, and quirky Fendi monsters. Playing on whimsy, the iconic Peekaboo was recreated in velvet with an eye-catching graphic imagery of a Japanese flower garden. “I love the Japanese print and flowers I found in a book; it’s like as if they are from another century, yet so modern,” mused Karl Lagerfeld about the floral garden prints. Fendi once again showed the world the inventiveness of its artisans; the abstract floral imagery on the Peekaboo was inlayed with a special antique carpet technique, rendering this Peekaboo reinterpretation the most spectacular version yet.
