Emirates Woman - - Contents -

“The em­broi­deries are from a very strange in­spi­ra­tion: from an­tique linens to Kupka paint­ings. It’s very strange but it doesn’t look like it any­more. In­spi­ra­tion is just a start­ing point…” – Karl Lager­feld ex­plains of the Fendi A/W Cou­ture col­lec­tion.

The Dubai Mall open­ing of the new Fendi bou­tique will mark the first time Fendi Cou­ture has been ex­hib­ited In-store through one-on-one ap­point­ments with an ex­hibit of seven key looks from the A/W 2018-2019 col­lec­tion. In­spired by mod­ern fem­i­nin­ity cre­ative di­rec­tor Karl Lager­feld chose a colour pal­ette of pale pink, nudes beige and lilacs, com­ple­mented by su­per light con­struc­tions and feather-weight ma­te­ri­als. The col­lec­tion see san in­trigu­ing play of il­lu­sions as fur is jux­ta­posed to nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als that em­ploy its tex­tures and light ef­fects as the house em­braced an ex­per­i­men­tal at­ti­tude and an in­no­va­tive vi­sion. Se­quins are em­broi­dered to felted fab­ric to give a fur like look while shear­ling gets a Per­sian lamb or shaved mink ef­fect. It’s also the first time the Fendi cou­ture col­lec­tion wel­comes skirt suits fea­tur­ing fit­ted jack­ets em­bel­lished with pa­tent leather and feather col­lars. Ball gowns and dresses are re­gal in na­ture with cage­like waist de­tail­ing while the ac­ces­sories em­brace an edgy and ar­chi­tec­tural-like de­sign through sculp­tural heels and pre­cious Min­audière clutch bags fea­tur­ing a decò twist. The col­lec­tion pro­vides the per­fect in­fu­sion of in­no­va­tion and ar­ti­sanal tra­di­tion. Fendi A/W Cou­ture is ex­hib­ited in store through one-on-one ap­point­ments at the Fendi bou­tique in The Dubai Mall
