We’re having snow-y day #4 I think, and looking at Autumn/Winter collections (instead of sitting in school as it’s closed due to the weather conditions which never, EVER has happened to me before and I’ve seen some snow and blizzard in my life) never felt more appropriate. Who said that the fashion world is broken?
The whole world feels broken, but that’s a topic for another ‘cheerful’ day. So here you go F/W ready-to-wear collection from Milan with all the heavy coats, chunky knits and fur details, which I wish would be faux, but it looks too good to be one and also we’re talking about Fendi here, meh. Not cool.
On another note, supporting feminism is a better topic and we got that one – although not so obvious fashion -, from (Karl Lagerfeld) and Silvia Venturini Fendi, when she said, “In our country, which is kind of patriarchal, we’ve always been considered an emblem for women, opening doors and fighting, but always in a personal, quiet way.”
“The other day I was reading an interview that one of my aunts gave in the late sixties. She said, ‘When we started our work in this industry it was mainly populated by men. When they realised what we were doing, it was too late for them to stop us.’ I thought that was clever. They were using soft power,” explained the Italian designer and it’s hard to argue with that.
Love these pieces, especially the huge slouchy Peek-a-Boo bags, they seem like a good companion to fight with that above mentioned soft power, aren’t they?
