Soon, two years will have passed since the death of fashion genius Karel Lagerfeld. He has been working in the luxury fashion house Fendi since 1965, for an incredible 54 years. Replacing him thus seems a completely impossible task. But the forty-seven-year-old British designer Kim Jones can at least try. He will present his first FW2021 collection at the turn of February/March next year. This man has Silvia Venturini Fendi's trust and in the future, he should take over the creation of women's collections, which were previously the privilege of Karel Lagerfeld. The latest one, SS2021, was still introduced by Silvia, though, and the Czech and still sought-after top model Eva Herzigová was also present.
If there is something you can tell the luxury brand Fendi by at first sight, then it's the sophistication and creativity that go hand in hand with each of their models. Transparent fabrics seductively revealing feminine curves, sexy cuts, precious lace and outfits that literally radiate femininity. Welcome to the world of Fendi! What other trends should not be missing in your wardrobe next season?
If you have the hot trend of 2020 - neon colors - in your wardrobe, don't shelf them just yet. Their era isn't over, especially when it comes to accessiories. Sweet pink, fresh orange or distinctive yellow? Yes please!
Next season, bet on men's style or subtle ensembles and you won't make a mistake. Chic oversized, fitted cuts with emphasis on a wasp waist, timeless black, sophisticated cream or gentle white? There are no limits here. If you don't leave your self-confidence at home when you head out, you're going to rock any business meeting!
Which direction Kim Jones' work for Fendi will take is still a big mystery. Will he follow in Karel Lagerfeld and Silivia Venturini Fendi's footsteps, or will he decide to go in the opposite direction? In a few months, we'll know the answer to this question. In the past, however, the designer became famous for mixing streetwear, pop culture and tailoring and for creating marketing for his products. You can currently see his work in Dior's collections. Yes, the designer decided to join the ranks of people who sit on two chairs and, in addition to the Dior men's collections, take over the resposibility for Fendi women's line.
Kim Jones studied fashion at Central Saint Martins. He kicked off his stellar career in 2008, when he became the creative director of Richemont's Dunhill. From 2011 to 2018, he worked as a men's artistic director at Louis Vuitton and subsequently at Dior.
The second richest man in the world, Bernard Arnault, chairman of the board and CEO of LVMH, which also presides over the fashion houses Christian Dior, Louis Vuitton and Fendi, puts his trust in him.
"Kim Jones is a great talent and since joining, he has continuously proven his ability to adapt to the codes and heritage of the LVMH houses while revisiting them with great modernity and audacity. At Fendi, I am convinced that his vision and passion will highly contribute to the success of the women's collections."
Last February, the iconic fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld left this world. Silvia Venturini Fendi thus had to deal with another new collection on her own. And it's out. I wonder what Karl would say. I'm not so enthusiastic about it, but the fact is that I'm a well known slanderer fighting for the normal human population. And I can't forget that Lagerfeld's influence on the history of the brand has been remarkable. He transformed the basics of working with furs in a revolutionary way and steered the Fendi fashion house through 50 years of unceasing innovation.
The desugnar was not afraid to push the boundaries; a true genius with a sense of bold aesthetics that influenced generations of designers. He worked in tandem with Silvia Venturini Fendi. Today, thanks to this creative pair, Fendi is synonymous with timeless quality, strong tradition, tireless experimentation and courageous creativity. Silvia had to go through the whole creative process alone now and come up with a new collection without Karel...
Karl loved leather and could work wonders with it. In this case, one would think that it's an ordinary coat. I see it as a return to the past. The wrong kind of past, when Germany was divided into the rich from the west and the poor from the east. The only thing this coat has going for it is its timeless neckline, and I really hope that the lady is wearing something under it, because at first glance I can't help but think back to those perverts from Petrín, who would jump out of the bushes, opening this exact coat and yelling "eso peso".
This, people, is what I wear at home. Silva went and stole the idea from me! I think I bought it a hundred years ago on sale somewhere in Dresden. I can only recommend it, it's perfect for laying around on the couch or in bed. I also wear it while cleaning or taking out the trash, but I wouldn't dare to go farther than to the bins. My boyfrind is already secretly hoping that this little number will mysteriously disappear during the spring cleaning.
This model reminds me of my grandmother. Okay, my grandmother does have somewhat different proportions, but she owns this very dress. It's made for very good girls, or very naughty girls trying to act like they're good. And that epic little bag? I have it too! In red. Obviously, pink is better, but still. I remember the days of deep communism, when we all had one. So for me, this is very retro, but unfortunately the kind of retro that wasn't cool even back then, let alone now.
I'm glad that at least Evička looks pretty. I don't know if it was her own choice, or she could wear anything and look divine, but I commend this. Minimalist, decent, that's exactly what our beauty is like.
