Rebellious model of the moment Cara Delevingne opened the Fendi Fall/Winter 2014 show, for which she walked exclusively in Milan, wearing a simple black coat and larger-than-life fur hood. In spite of the distracting camera drones hovering overhead, all eyes were on the Karl bag bug dangling from her fingers, which skyrocketed to the top of every attendee’s wish list faster than you could say “must-have”.

Fendi’s Fall/Winter 2014 presentation closed with crystal-covered fur jackets and dresses that resembled a map of our galaxy, a reminder that Fendi will always be light years ahead of the rest of the competition.

The following looks were an unusual mix of materials; mink fur jutted out from waistlines, shoulders, and hemlines, interrupted by mesh panels here and there. An hourglass silhouette ensured that the models’ petite frames weren’t overwhelmed. As the collection progressed, the fur embellishments erupted into ankle-length fur coats and jackets – a phenomenon Lagerfeld referred to as a “fur escape”. It seemed at first that the designer had resisted the urge to dye and manipulate the material a million different ways, but a series of looks that saw graphic pieces of fur patched together to create a camo print pointed to the contrary. Like a Nordic army, models in knee-high utilitarian boots worn under skirts or over pants marched down the runway with fur stoles held in pace by leather straps and buckles.

Aside from the cubic-cum-military theme at play, mesh inserts continued to appear throughout the collection – at the hem of a sweater dress, as one of the sleeves on a round-shoulder top, covering the back of a floor-length dress – giving the collection a decidedly sporty feel, especially when worn under a pair of navy-blue running shorts.
