Let’s be honest: if a design house is showing in Milan there is automatically a level of lavishness associated with it. And this isn’t limited to the women’s lines, but is true of the menswear as well. And the Fendi Fall 2013 Menswear Collection is the perfect example.
Designer Silvia Venturini Fendi brings a rich history to the label. She is a daughter of one of the Fendi Five Sisters and has spent the years since childhood studying under Fendi’s Artistic Director Karl Lagerfeld. Having climbed the ranks to Accessories Head, Fendi brings her eye for detail to her Menswear designs as well.
This collection, while exhibiting several monochromatic looks, it is also rich in textures and layers, giving the collection depth and visual interest. And yes, there are showcase pieces that are strictly runway (or appropriate only for the most daring of men), but much of the Fendi Fall 2013 Menswear Collection seemed ready for the real world and rather wearable. (An element that I often attribute to Karl Lagerfeld designs!)
Here are some of my favorite street ready looks from the collection:
So tell me what do you think of the Fendi Fall 2013 Menswear Collection? Has Fendi carried on her family’s legacy? Can you see Lagerfeld’s influence in the collection? Do you think these looks are street ready?
