A stroll in the garden never looked this good.
Silvia Venturini Fendi loves gardening and she translates this passion of hers through Fendi Men’s Spring/Summer 2020 collection. She took the Fendi man in this most bucolic yet manual dialogue between man and “the great outdoors” in a breezy collection that emphasizes functionality and utility, the Fendi way.
The collection is dominated by an earthy, muted palette of greens, beiges and browns combined with natural materials—silks, cottons, wools, cashmere, leathers, suede and denim. Sartorial workwear pieces with a uniform feel meet a certain lightness and air that makes everything weightless and fresher through strategically-placed slits and openings on roomy volumes and perforated garments. Spacious removable pockets are zippered onto place, adding another functional element. Shapes are archetypal: overalls, coats, cargo pants, long polo shirts, vests and suits, of course.
Silk piping, pervasive treillage-effect grids and nets are a celebration of Fendi’s exquisite savoir-faire, including a special cut-out FENDI pattern in leather. “Botanics for FENDI” prints devised by director Luca Guadagnino—guest artist of the season—and geometric ones with a vague kimono flavor add a painterly, gentle touch on waterproof organza.
The signature Fendi FF logo and striped Pequin pattern highlight the accessories of the collection, resulting in a skillful play of logos and textures. Echoing the overall gardening mood, high-tops and trainers in canvas and rubber have been developed in collaboration with Moonstar, a Japanese authority in the field. Croco-printed loafers, sandals, boots and Mary Janes for men complete the shoes range.
