Fendi Fun Fur

Something radical is going on in the house of Fendi. A steady momentum has been building over the past three seasons, from AW12’s rustic folklore to SS13’s Bauhaus modernism and now, for AW13, a collection of Fraggles in fox-fur mohawks. If eccentricity is a firework within the framework of an institution, this season the firework well and truly went off.

A Fendi fur is fluid as you like. Three to four layers of lining, pretty standard on a coat, are often stripped away so what’s on the inside is just the hide. This season’s statement furs are constructed out of thin strips and geometry-set shapes of just a few centimetres, which are cut by hand and laid out on a board before being stitched together, creating the closest thing in fashion to a parquet floor. Or, given the aesthetic, the pattern of a kaleidoscope.

Karl Lagerfeld is responsible for women’s ready-to-wear and furs at the house, and AW13’s punky workout was his 96th Fendi collection. Fendi is creative director of accessories, menswear and childrenswear and works alongside the Kaiser on the catwalk.
