Fendi Honors the Spirituality of the Eternal City for Spring 2022 Haute Couture

Fendi Haute Couture Spring 2022.

After shooting a film to showcase his second Fendi couture collection, Kim Jones returned to the Paris catwalk on Thursday to unveil his third couture outing for the Italian fashion house. And this season, the designer is still fascinated by Rome, turning to the bones of the ancient buildings in the Eternal City to inform the well-constructed garments that are made to last – just like those in the Italian capital.

A video of moving clouds was the focal point of the sci-fi-inspired runway, with models stepping on it as if walking from the sky. Religious or not, there was a spiritual, dreamy quality to their entrances that aligns with the idea of ​​Rome as a sacred place. The show notes describe the couture lineup as “an army of empresses whose divine purity is imbued with heavenly power.” That means high-shine sequins that accentuate the vertical lines of strong, flowing silhouettes. The shimmering, warrior-like robes, many with wisps and high-low hems, are so body-fitting that they give the models an otherworldly appeal.

From stellar dresses to literally stately creations, Jones gives classic Roman images the couture treatment by hand painting them on shaved mink and velvet. And while the result is more museum-worthy than red-carpet must-haves, what’s intriguing about his latest offering is the exposed underpinnings: Jones strips away the layers on several pieces to reveal the intricate boning required to create a couture-level garment. to make.

Jones’ previous couture collections had a soft, undulating quality, but his most recent presentation is a decisive starting point, one that showcases female superheroes and is rooted in strength. “That’s what my vision for Fendi is about,” Jones explained in the show notes, “celebrating the power of women.”
