Italian luxury fashion house FENDI presented the Fall Winter 2023.24 Menswear Collection with a show held on Saturday, January 14th, during the ongoing Milano Fashion Week. Silvia Venturini Fendi, the Artistic Director of Accessories and Menswear, introdiuced a collection which represents an ultimate study of sophisticated comfort, the opulence of the everyday, and the elegance of the unexpected. With a subverted classicism inherent to the FENDI name, expressions of shimmer and shine are embedded in a landscape of sartorial experimentation.
FALL WINTER 2023.24 COLLECTIONS
Trompe l’oeil clothes that trick the eye are the result of dynamic workmanship — house codes twisted to create new gestures of plush texture and patina. By exploring the decadence of the city and the lights that sparkle after dark, lines are blurred between tough and traditional menswear silhouettes with a new soignée allure. Asymmetry and volume infuse the sartorial wardrobe with geometry and movement, revealing layers of craftsmanship and flashes of skin. Celebrating the hallmarks of FENDI materiality, double-faced (and reversible) cashmere, engineered leathers and jacquard silks are illuminated by the disco ball hues of silver, indigo and violet. They lift a sober palette that undulates between shades of dove grey, oatmeal, burnt umber, mocha, mauve, lavender, deep navy and black. – from FENDI
Unfolding in parallel gestures throughout, cocooning outerwear plays against the sensuality of languid knits and deconstructed shirting to question the boundaries of utility and artifice. Closed with O’Lock zippers, blanket coats and ponchos swaddle ribbed cashmere track separates; sweater vests fall off the shoulder; fluid trousers are cut with a draped skirt. Double-breasted overcoats featuring satin lapels, fringed hems or a scattering of metallic appliqué en tremblant offer purity and rigour amidst layered silhouettes. Mélange textures abound from camel hair jersey to Shetland wool flannel, sprayed shearling and FF fleece, as shadow effects create antique finishes in waxed and burnished leather or overdyed denim. Disappearing into geometric abstraction, the FENDI astuccio motif is reimagined as FENDI Shadow, a larger-than-life logo woven into mohair scarves, blankets, fringed linings and ‘pinstripe’ tailoring. The effect is of a subtle extravagance: the FENDI man in his element on the streets, at home, or on the dancefloor. – from FENDI
