Futurist Fringe and Fierce Feet Ruled the Runway at Fendi

Today in Milan, Karl Lagerfeld did for the letter F what the Kardashian family has done for the K. Yes, with futurist fringes and fierce feet ruling the runway, the Fendi show was top-to-toe fashion.

According to the seat notes, inspiration for the show was “a world where Italian Futurism meets tropical travel,” which goes some way to explaining why models sported identikit sharp, graphic fringes that were dyed Caribbean blue.
