Karl Lagerfeld's grandiose Fendi show off
Fashion / /
In the fashion world it's no secret that Karl Lagerfeld has established himself as the king of extravagant runway settings. His latest one was in the Trevi Fountain in Rome.
Marking the 90th anniversary of the Italian fashion house, Karl Lagerfeld picked the Trevi Fountain in Rome as the place where the Haute Couture show for upcoming fall should be presented. Given the fact that Fendi cashed out $2.4 million for renovation of the fountain, it seemed justice that the works should be crowned with a spectacle.
The show consisted 47 stunning looks. The improvised runway was literally in the fountain, and the models walked on a transparent glass surface. The only bad thing is that the models were not as near to the audience as on the previous shows, so the exquisite details from handmade mink coats to finest hand painted lace dresses were not at arm reach distance from the guest and journalists.
The collection or the event, however you prefer, was supported by the hashtag #legendsandfairytales which actually was the name of the collection. The show was opened by Kendal Jenner wearing a Victorian era inspired, blue coat with gray details.
After that we saw a numerous outfits with paints or embroidery in natural shapes like trees, floral and leaves.
The most fascinating outfit was the coat-dress made from mink fur, that was in-the-making for more than 1200h.
Anyway take a look and let us know if this is one (if not the one) of the most amazing runway shows ever.
