Fendi, the iconic Italian fashion house, revealed its Autumn/Winter 2024-25 collection under Artistic Director Kim Jones. The collection, a fusion of Fendi's rich heritage and modern vibrancy, draws inspiration from the influential British subcultures of 1984, such as the Blitz Kids and New Romantics.

A Homage to Historical Elegance

Fendi's Autumn/Winter 2024-25 ensemble pays homage to the timeless elegance that is quintessential to Roman fashion ethos, a theme recurrently explored in Kim Jones' latest creations. "It was a point when British subcultures and styles became global and absorbed global influences. Yet still with a British elegance in ease and not giving a damn what anybody else thinks, something that chimes with Roman style," says Kim Jones. His narrative for the season is a dialogue between the utilitarian and the extravagant, the simple and the theatrical, the salon and the street.

Collection Highlights: Reinterpreting the Fendi Codes

The collection showcases Fendi's hallmark blend of elegance and utility. It features utilitarian dresses with a flowing elegance, set against the backdrop of tulle and organza's delicate transparency. Artisanal wools and leathers highlight the brand's craftsmanship. Notably, the Selleria motif, a Fendi staple since its inception, finds new expression in leather riding boots and a Chupa Chups® lollipop holder, merging heritage with innovation.
