Fendi is the hit of Paris Couture Fashion Week

Fendi’s new artistic director of couture and womenswear Kim Jones debuted his first collection as the successor of Karl Lagerfeld for the Spring/Summer 2021 Couture collection. The new haute couture collection debuted in a dark romantic runway show for Paris Couture Fashion Week with plenty of celebrity models and icons in attendance.

The runway show featured celebrity models including Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell, Cara Delevingne, Demi Moore, Bella Hadid, Kate Moss, and Moss’ daughter Lila Grace. The runway collection featured elegant styles in sheen silk fabrics for a darker romantic collection for spring and summer designs.

Prior to this collection, Jones had never designed couture or made a full women’s collection that critics thought would present a challenge but the collection was a hit of Paris Couture Fashion Week. Kim Jones has a reputation for menswear but this collection will build his name in couture and womenswear fashion.

The collection combined masculine traits of bold tailoring with elegant feminine styles for an androgynous couture collection. This concept is unique for couture that adheres to traditional standards of maintaining menswear and womenswear as two separate identities.
