MILAN–The Fendi show this morning wasn’t exactly pretty, but it wasn’t ugly, either. Although Karl Lagerfeld would never be so common as to name Grey Gardens as a reference, it did feel something like “Edie Beale goes to Rome.”
Why? Well, the proper silhouettes and structured handbags were traditional, but the color combinations of brown, red, and blue,–or brown, mustard, red, and grey–were wacky in that delightful way only the 1970s were wacky. And we haven’t even touched on the fur. Only Karl can put Arizona Muse in a camouflaged fur scarf and make her the best-dressed girl in the room.
