Karl Lagerfeld's Final Collection For Fendi
Fendi showed its final collection by Karl Lagerfeld at Milan Fashion Week yesterday, Thursday 21 Feb.
Despite him being better known for his work at Chanel, Karl worked as creative director at Fendi for 54 years. Although his successor at Fendi hasn’t been announced yet, he has been working alongside Silvia Venturini Fendi, his collaborator for some time.
The Fall/Winter 2019-20 Collection expresses Karl Lagerfeld's perpetual search for beauty and innovation. The designs are avant-garde and simple, structured and light at the same time.
Gigi Hadid closed the show, which saw a short movie clip and tribute to Lagerfeld. Backstage, emotions were high as many models and Karl collaborators, who owe much to the designer, fought back their tears.
