Collection Video: Fendi S/S 21 Haute Couture

published on 27 January 2021

'Vain trifles as they seem, clothes have, they say, more important offices than to merely keep us warm. They change our view of the world and the world’s view of us.' - Virginia Woolf, Orlando (1928)

For Kim Jones's debut Fendi collection, the designer drew on the renegade British sensibility of the Bloomsbury Group while paying homage to the storied history of the Roman maison. 'I admire the way that they lived their lives, the freedom that they created for themselves and the art that they left behind for the world,' said Kim Jones of the creative set.

Mother and daughter duo Kate and Lila Moss walked the runway in shimmering ensembles, alongside sisters Adwoa and Kesewa Aboah, Christy Turlington and her nephew James, and Leonetta and Delfina Delettrez Fendi. Marbles were a key component in the collection’s visual language, visible in woven jacquards, on silken gowns, through intarsia furs and hand-beaded tailoring.

'Fendi represents artisanal quality of the highest order, and it is all about family. It is in its third generation with a Fendi at its helm, and I am guest starring while bringing in the fourth. Here, I am surrounded by strong, powerful women who I love and respect, and want to bring their energy into what I do,' said Jones.
