I’ve always wondered how can Karl Lagerfeld manage to simultaneously run the artistic direction of two maisons so different from each other and so historically fundamental such as Chanel and Fendi. Where and how does he find two different inspirations, ideas and opposite moods to create two collections that, most of the time, even work wonderfully well? I haven’t found a satisfying answer yet. The FW 15 Fendi collection presented in Milan last week has been inspired by the architecture of the Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana, Rome headquarters of the brand, and is a triumph of perfect geometries softened by mellow fabrics and colors. It confirms my idea that Karl Lagerfeld is a kind of superhero with the absolute power of multitasking. Chapeau.
