There’s no stopping Kim Jones and the House of Fendi.

The brand presented its Spring/Summer 2023 collection during Milan Fashion Week, and it wowed. Oozing femininity, strength, and a distinct contemporary viewpoint, Kim Jones further delves into Fendi’s new House codes. Looking towards Fendi’s Heritage for inspiration, Jones offers up Fendi History from a new lens.

New Meets Old

It’s through this lens that the past becomes the present and future. It was Karl Lagerfeld’s designs from 1996 to 2002 specifically that inspired Jones this season. A floral print taken from the archive is reimagined this season, splashed onto tops and dresses and layered with the Fendi logo. Furthermore, the double-F logo that was first introduced in 2000 is a graphic focal point for the colorful pieces. There’s a slight Y2K feel to the collection. Think silk cargo pants, sheer tops, and platform shoes.

“What is particularly interesting to me about FENDI is exploring the notion of functional utility alongside femininity – because the Fendi women are strong women with full, busy lives.” — Kim Jones

Fendi Icons, Reinvented

As for the bags, Fendi focuses on Fendi staples—both new and old. Particularly, the Peekaboo shines this season, presented with a chain strap for the first time ever. Meanwhile, the Fendi First, a new House icon, is clutched by models in lush shearling and shiny patent. Miniature Fendi First and Peekaboos appear on long chains, dangling from models’ necks, and though mini in size, they pack a big punch in style. As with the RTW, neutral hues are accented by bold pops of color, and bags are fun but not without function, designed with the same duality as the rest of the collection.

Very sharp edges, cold metals and leathers that don’t look very high quality. Even the mini peekaboo has lost it’s softness. Also, these chains look so uncomfortable and uninviting. And gosh, do some of these look cheap! Is this really the new Fendi? ._.

The moment I saw ribbed sweater and viscose clothes, I knew this is gonna be ugly. Another ugly collection from Fendi. Lagerfeld must be rolling on his grave.

That fur bag wrapped up with a fur ribbon like a package! Is it fun to look at?… YES! I love it! … Would I carry it? Sadly, No… I would ruin that in a heart beat… real OR fake fur…I would mess it up in five seconds flat. Plus, sigh, I can’t get past the logos. But it sure is fun! Fashion truly is art. Some love it, some hate it… but all of it garners a reaction.
