Fendi Haute Couture Spring Summer 2022. Review by RUNWAY MAGAZINE.
The story of this Fendi Haute Couture collection by Kim Jones is a story told by Fendi is a fantasy from past to the future. The historic codes of the city, its marble statues and aesthetic, are explored by creative director of Fendi Kim Jones.
“When you walk down the street in Rome, you are constantly moving back and forth in time. Where we work feels very modern, but you pass monuments on the way there. There’s a total timelessness to the city: a historic vein which runs through it, but also a movement that is projecting forwards,” – said Kim Jones.
Drawing upon fantasy and reality to land in an otherworldly present. For the new Fendi Couture Spring Summer 2022 collection, KimJones explores the historic codes of Rome – also known as the Eternal City – within a futuristic framework that defies time and space.
“Fendi is, of course, a family and a dynasty. It is a family of creative collaborators, with both Silvia Venturini Fendi and her daughter Delfina Delettrez Fendi working closely within the house. It is important when you work somewhere to understand the artistic heritage,” – said Kim Jones.
The Fendi Set is both a celebration of history and an ode to the future of Fendi Couture.
