Fendi RTW AW16 came in waves, Karl Lagerfeld offered up a lightheartedly trenchant quote before the Fendi collection set foot on the runway: “Voltaire said, What needs an explanation is not worth explaining.” Teasing those who make intellectual pronouncements about fashion collections with the words of a philosopher is a typical Lagerfeldian flourish. So let us swiftly dispense with cogitating over the source of the waves inspiration behind Fendi’s show. The show briskly spun out ideas on the trends du jour: thigh-high boots with undulating frills around the tops and the shoe uppers, and ruffled, yoked blouses and dresses. There were wavy stripes set into furs and printed on midi dresses. A short navy cocoon coat was cut into 3-D concentric circles, like ripples on a pond. Somewhere along the wavy line, Silvia Venturini Fendi and Lagerfeld started having fun, too, making costly pastel fox fur coats mimic the playful appearance of girly fake furs. Commencing the collection, an incredible ensemble of texture, colour and total must-have style envy, Suki Waterhouse was seen walking the runway in the ¾ flared sleeve blouse, featuring a beautifully crafted blouse with ribbed white turtle neckline in a black band and stripe print, this silk blouse which comes in three different colour way available at Parlour X was perfectly paired with the botanical embroidered silk jacquard long skirt with additional eye-catching pleat inserts. Already a star favourite of Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid and Hailey Baldwin, the ensemble was completed with the oversized double breasted collared coat. If you are an early adopter of certain pieces, such as fashion’s IT girl, Olivia Palermo, than you would know what its style must-have and enviable piece, the Fendi Dot Com bag with smooth calfskin and water snake shoulder strap is the perfect medium shoulder bag and will be a sales sell out. Arriving into Parlour X this year, Fendi AW16 collections has been a fashion hit with all of the industry’s most influences, including, Kate Waterhouse, Nadia Fairfax, Halle Berry and Kate Moss. In addition to the Dot Com bag is the 2jours bag, a mini sized cross body strap bag also featured in smooth calfskin with black or mint bar detailing has been noted as Katie Holmes new favourite bag for this season and we can see why, as the perfectly crafted bag has beautiful detailing in a modern and chic way, also being that its sizes makes for a great evening or weekend companion. Finally, within the collection is the launch of the line dubbed the “strap you”, featuring nothing but straps. All differing from one-another, the straps are very colourful and diverse in texture. Now on sale at Parlour X is the leather shoulder strap with geometric plexi glass studs and with its reduced pricing it is a totally fashion steal!
