When the worlds of Fendi and Kim Jones collide for a haute couture experience, we know it’s bound to be a breathtaking fashion spectacle – especially when you consider the fact that Jones, a celebrated menswear designer in his own right is tackling womenswear for the first time in his career.
As we tuned into the highly-anticipated couture debut by the British designer on the night of January 27, we bore witness how Fendi’s new artistic director of womenswear translated the imaginations of his literary heroine, Virginia Woolf, through the Italian house’s time-honoured craftsmanship.
Taking a page from Woolf’s Orlando, Jones embodied a romanticised concept of genderless beauty that transcends the boundaries of time, dressing models of all ages in tailored silk suits and gowns in shimmering silver, ivory and rose golds.
The models who walked the runway highlighted his deep ties to some of the most influential women in fashion like his BFFs Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell and the daughters of Silvia Venturini Fendi – underscoring the brand’s own values about family and friends.
