Thrusting old world elegance into the New Roaring Twenties, the FENDI Fall/Winter 2022-23 collection designed by Silvia Venturini Fendi is a treasure trove of future heirlooms – reimagining a gentleman’s wardrobe for a neo-dandy riff on perennial classics.

Twisting and turning sartorial tropes, formality is disrupted in playful gestures that break the boundaries of archetype, shades of black and cream, burgundy, raspberry, mocha, taupe and white form a rich, understated palette for tonal plays of precious texture and bold graphic statements. Traditional fabrics and weaves like Vichy check tweeds and hound’s tooth suiting, satin tuxedo trims and striped silk jacquards are scaled up and down in dialogue with ribbed sleeves, cable knit ensembles and the O’Lock chain motif as a new monogram.

Co-opting the symbols of a bygone male sophistication, the collection is adorned with 3D pearl and diamond digital prints, shearling floral brooches, pearl O’Lock chokers and crystal FF pendants. The strict lines of FENDI tailoring find new softness as modular garments combine suiting, knitwear and leather in unprecedented proportions. Blazers explode into flat capes, scooped jackets and keyhole knits expose the clavicle, and wide trousers sway with a half-skirt in tow. Outerwear assumes couture volumes with dropped shoulders and Dolman sleeves, sharp lapels and covered buttons – exploring FENDI craftsmanship in etched O’Lock shearling, complex intarsia shearling, and smooth leather trims.

As the ultimate expression of FENDI’s Roman elegance, subversive eveningwear silhouettes celebrate the art of dressing up with cropped double-breasted jackets, super high-waist formal trousers, and tailcoats worn over Mary Jane brogues closed with wristwatch straps, nostalgic footwear includes patent O’Lock loafers with scalloped trims and two-tone wingtip Chelsea boots, whilst the new FENDI sneaker features a dynamic stretched FF logo.

The FENDI Men’s Fall/Winter 2022-23 accessories collection sees the Peekaboo bag pared back in its most architectural form to date, appearing as a large, structured shopper in solid smooth and grain leathers, FF logo paneling, suede and in the season’s Vichy check wool, named Peekaboo FForty8, The Baguette isupsized as an FF-embossed soft trunk and shrunk as an exotic miniature chain bag together with the signature rigid trunk in metal and plexiglass.
