Fendi Milan Men’s Fashion Week: RTW Fall 2016 Shoes

The model descended a spiral staircase in a big plaid robe, matching pants and furry slippers, and loped down the shearling runway. Good morning!

Silvia Venturini Fendi adopted what she called a “domestic attitude” for fall, basing her men’s collection on the cozy textures and slouchy silhouettes usually worn only lounging around the house.

Rarely has cocooning looked so sumptuous and labor-intensive. Other belted robe coats — a key shape in Milan — were composed of intimate geometric intarsias of shearling, while loose trousers came in patterned silks or thick knits as comfy as sweatpants.

Backstage, Venturini Fendi noted that Truman Capote worked from his sofa; Agatha Christie in her bathtub. “I’m rarely at home, but it’s my dream,” she said. “When I am there, I work a lot in my bed.”

You would need a lucrative telecommuting gig to afford these clothes — and a lean figure to carry their bulk. Hairy knitted suits, for example, gave models a slight Chewbacca aspect.

While the collection hit on multiple Milan trends — bold checks, fuzzy textures and generous shapes — it was often overwhelmed by eccentricity and luxury overload.
