Milano can’t have all the fun! While most major editors were taking in Gucci and MaxMara, the show still went on at Madrid Fashion Week in Spain. Who can resist this look from the Agatha Ruiz de la Prada runway show?
Fendi: Fur, fur and more fur! Fendi knows its way around plush pelts; this season, they made sure to flaunt it. This time it wasn’t just a naturally pigmented palette. Coats, skirts and skirt suits came in striated hues of hot pink, navy, orange, brown and white. A black zippered wool coat dress was accented with curvaceous, shoulder-skimming panels of cobalt blue fur, chest, and sleeves, the frock’s edges dyed white to accentuate via outline. Also warming up the runway? A full-on fur sweater. Luxe much?! Yet the best looks tended to be the most understated. See: a sculpted white jacket, half of which was wool, the other half comprised of pale pink fur. A white knee-length skirt and black cinched waist overcoat on different looks also got the halved treatment, in the same fashion. Other options abounded, like a sexy black leather slit skirt with knee high stockings and a leather pullover top or a casually cool zip blousson jacket that was decorated with layered circular paillettes worn with slouchy white pants. But Karl Lagerfeld apparently had the furriers working overtime; everything from handbags to headpieces to heels (CÃ©line dÃ©jÃ vu, anyone?) got decadently pelt-laden. Only the deepest of pockets will do for this lavish collection, non?
