French Florals, Cloudy Pastels & Girly Ribbons at Fendi Spring/Summer 2017 Runway Show

It’s one of Fendi’s most exciting years, and the newest Fendi spring/summer 2017 collection, presented at Milan Fashion Week a few hours ago, just confirms it. After ‘borrowing’ the Trevi Fountain in Rome earlier this summer for the Fendi fall 2016 couture show, Karl Lagerfeld took us by surprise with a 56-piece collection inspired by Marie Antoinette that celebrates beauty at its purest.

Lightweight and light-hearted, the Fendi spring/summer 2017 ready-to-wear line-up is all about layers and hourglass figures, with delicate lace materials and sinuous sleek fabrics wrapping up the silhouettes without being too tight. As in Ian Griffiths’ Max Mara collection unveiled earlier this morning, Lagerfeld also out a sort of emphasis on the waistlines, enhancing their sensuality with laced belts even when the collection’s skimpy crop-tops left the waists sensually exposed.

With these proposals, Lagerfeld just confirmed another huge summer 2017 trend, too: military-themed staples. Already seen in various runway shows, such as that of Fay, the military theme is here translated to a more sophisticated, less rigorous sense, with see-through laced butterfly sleeves lightening up the safari-inspired proposals. Its importance is, however, strictly structured within the collection, as Karl Lagerfeld decided to open his runway show with military-themed looks.

The second part of the collection treated us to softer figures, highlighted in their ethereal beauty with bubblegum pink shades and sleek jacquard materials. Cuts and lines become here even wider, with billowy cropped palazzo pants dominating the scene.

Dresses completely made of a white sheer cloth appear to be one of next summer’s mantras too, as most recently seen in the Max Mara spring 2017 collection too. In a similar way, black and white vertical stripes seemed to have gloriously shaped their way through the spring/summer season thanks to roomy culottes, frocks and striped jackets, as seen both here at Fendi and at Blugirl yesterday.

The collection’s second part also took the horizontal stripes of the Fendi pre-spring 2017 collection and naturally translated them to a kind of fairytale-like style, either dipping them in pastel shades, or revisiting them to create maverick wide cloth belts.

The collection’s third part introduces us to Lagerfeld’s most conventionally sophisticated staples, with the quirky patterns and eccentric choice of materials and hues making the entire collection unapologetically and sensually wearable.

Gold, silver, sultrier pastel hues and layers of transparent appliqués come together to serve as extremely refined apron dresses, baby dolls, and structured long-sleeved midi frocks we immediately fell in love with. Their uniqueness and complexity make it possible for us to either dare with large amounts of exposed skin, or go for a ‘modest’ kind of outfit thanks to the oversized trench coats.

Everything is then complemented with an exquisite dream array of accessories, the motifs and details of which are standard Fendi, both in terms of the shoes and bags. The accessory line for spring is, however, slightly less metallic-infused as the fall/winter 2016-17 one, as this time around Lagerfeld opted to match the pieces with the collection’s garments. Stripes, sensually sleek materials and loose silhouettes revamped the accessories, making us absolutely thrilled about the upcoming spring/summer season.

If matching your shoes and bag with what you are wearing is not enough for you, you can always opt for a Fendi SS 2017 show-approved makeup look. Thanks to makeup artist Peter Philips and hair stylist Sam McKnight, the models sported glittery, pastel-toned eyeshadows and sleek ponytails onstage, giving the entire runway show and collection a sort of revisited Nineties theme.
