A contemporary Renaissance took to the Milan runway as Karl Lagerfeld presented the Fendi Spring/Summer '16 collection. While 70s style is having a moment, this collection offers fashion from an era much earlier.
Though creative director Karl Lagerfeld is notoriously anti retro, the Fendi Spring/Summer '16 collection channels a variety of old world elements. This spring line offers 19th century style with a cutting-edge twist for an all-over modern look. Bloomers may be old-fashioned underpants but within this collection, the relaxed undergarment is made into leather playsuits, laced-up shorts and super sultry mini dresses. Puff-shoulder sleeves are another passé style that has been refashioned into sexy sheer shirts as well as Victorian-collared blouses and dresses.
The Fendi Spring/Summer '16 collection proves that some traditional styles are worth a second chance.
