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.
