FENDI STUNS WITH KIM JONES’ INAUGURAL COUTURE COLLECTION
Kim Jones, of Dior and Louis Vuitton menswear fame once again makes a splash, this time as he helms the Artistic Director role at Italian fashion house Fendi, which recently debuted an exquisite haute couture collection that takes viewers to a personal trip back to his humble English origins. From look 1 to 19, spectators were treated to a classical extravaganza that melds Charleston Farmhouse (a historic country home in Sussex, where Jones was raised) with the time-travelling escapades of a Virginia Woolf novel. How so?
It was simply a vision realized in the philosophy of form-fitting silhouettes and intricate decorations, not far from the antique-filled attics of the posh bohemian set Jones looks to for his muse.
Instead of the bouncy, frivolous gowns that have once proliferated the red carpets and costume galas of yesteryear, dresses were crafted to reflect today’s period of cosmopolitan androgyny, featuring floor-sweeping kingly capes, hybrid blazer-shirt numbers, hand-beaded prints, and painted tailoring that takes inspiration from the prestigious Galleria Borghese in Rome.
With such a knockout showing on his first attempt at Haute-Couture in Fendi, Jones’ star status in the fashion world is only expected to brighten further. Take a look at the full collection below.
