Fendi - Menswear Spring/Summer 2015 Collection in Milan (with interview)

At Fendi, luxurious elegance blends into an urban wardrobe. Silvia Fendi extols a classic style that is distinguished by numerous technical details, creating materials plays that you only discover with a closer look. Knitwear is thin and graphic, whilst leather leitmotifs are perforated, taking on a mesh appearance, braided and laser cut, producing stripe details or multicoloured patchworks. Trompe l’oeil effects transform leather, which takes on a faded denim look. Sweaters are adorned with leather breast pockets. Material layers and mixtures propose a parka embellished by a sleeveless perforated leather jacket. Two-tone trousers consist of two shades of beige, proving that this collection is all about subtlety and nuance. The summery colour palette (khaki, cream, grey, light blue and navy) is energized by accessories devised in zingy hues (red, yellow and green) that characterise slides and luxury sandals, and let’s not forget the XXL bucket bag or the latest Peekaboo, complemented by numerous furry light bulb charms. These are the future must-haves that both men and women dream of adopting…And luxury is epitomised by Beats by Dr. Dre headphones designed in crocodile skin!Interviews:Silvia Fendi :I mainly worked on the concepts of the indispensable summertime clothes and materials for men so the collection focuses on jeans and chinos, on khaki and all the masculine must-haves but done in a very Fendi way, so the materials are quite interesting, you have to touch them to appreciate it and almost all the jeans are made of leather or khaki, which is the basis for these layered leather pieces. Especially in the summer, we want leather to be supple and light so nearly all the different leathers have perforations, giving this idea of lightness and the air can pass through, so there is this organic side too.Pietro Beccari :To summarise, the new Fendi style is classic and simple in terms of functionality, bold and daring in its execution and as you say, we are the leather experts and we love that people call us ‘Masters of the materials’.Music from the show
