The Parisian fashion week revolved all around Karl Lagerfeld and his extraordinary sense for designs and production. Not only his Chanel show was a highlight of the week, but also his first-ever Haute Couture show for Fendi. The Italian brand is known for its leather goods and their fur clothing.
Usually, at a premier of an Haute Couture show, you would expect an extensive spectacle with costly side effects and a lot of tam-tam – but that was not the case. Karl Lagerfeld decided to keep the runway rather simple with a painting by the Italian surrealist Giorgio de Chirico in the back of the catwalk.
The less the showroom, in the Théâtre des Champs Elysée, was decorated, the more extravagant was the clothing.
The models wore floor length mink as well as brown, grey and even pink capes. Another eye catching design was the stole in a bunch of different colors and the application of feathers and flowers gave an extra touch to the fur. Karl Lagerfeld titled the show “Silver Moon”, because in the moonlight nothing looks like what it really is. To underline the theme, all the guests were presented with little binoculars, because luxury is made out of detail and you won’t see it from the distance.
