Milan. Fendi. Fitting. Showtime. Visiting the Fendi headquarters for Milan Fashion Week was an absolute dream. I immediately spotted Karl Lagerfeld nonchalantly strolling down the hallway in preps for the fashion show. I had to pinch myself from all the excitement…is this place even real? I couldn’t help but dreamily run my fingers through every long silk dress at our fitting. Every dress so perfectly sharp at the shoulders with an exaggerated, feminine waistline. It’s certainly the most flattering cut on any woman. So classic, elongating, and elegant. Dylana and I had a ball at our fitting… slipping into extra high waisted skirts and buttoning up into bright pink blazers. The fit was always so on point. I chose the iconic Fendi sock bootie and triple clutch bag as a finishing touch. Fendi has mastered the tongue-in-cheek, super eclectic look that still remains timeless. Bright bold hues with a beautiful play on luxurious texture. It’s no surprise Dylana and I both ended up choosing this Fendi F/W ’17 silhouette. We like to gravitate towards similar pieces yet pull it off in a completely different and unique way. Getting to play in such an iconic fashion house is nothing but a dream.
As we pulled up for the show, the traffic was insane. Cars lined up everywhere. Paparazzi surrounded the entire block. We managed to squeeze through the extra chic Milano crowds right before showtime. I spotted numerous familiar faces as I squeezed my bum in at my front row seat…it was certainly the place to be this MFW. We were greeted with Kaia Gerber opening the show, followed by a sea of stunning striped ensembles in all of my favorite pastel spring hues. But it was the layering and the mixing and matching that really caught my eye. It’s the way you can pair a sheer turtleneck with just about anything that is mind-blowing, and inspiring. Under dresses. Under shirts. Under bras! There were also a lot exposed shoulders…in the ultimate leather midi-dress and on romantic billowing blouses. It’s amazing how prints like stripes, florals, and plaid can be so perfectly intertwined using luxurious sheer textures and silks. I think it’s time I get a pair of sheer plaid stockings! I spotted other iconic faces on the runway. Gigi. Bella. Kendall. All adorned in beautiful pastels with a seriously badass bright blue fringe shading their eyes. Now that’s how you put on a perfect show. Bravo Fendi! I will anxiously await next season.
