Fendi traveled to Paris and the Palais Brogniart on July 4 to unveil its Fall/Winter 2018-2019 haute couture collection. The poetic collection was signed by the creative duo of Karl Lagerfeld, Creative Director of the Maison since 1965, and Silvia Venturini Fendi, Creative Director for Men’s collections and accessories.
At the Palais Brongniart in Paris, Karl Lagerfeld, Creative Director of Fendi since 1965 presented the Maison’s Fall/Winter 2018-2019 haute couture collection.
The German couturier drew inspiration from the early 20th-century Orphism art movement, often called a poetic version of Cubism.
The result was a highly colorful collection that melded tradition and modernity.
Ultra-feminine silhouettes accentuate the waist and shoulders. Organza and chiffon fabrics become trompe l’œil surfaces. Coats and dresses are graced in a rainbow palette of pink, apricot and lavender, echoing the canvasses of Czech painter František Kupka.
