Fendi 2010 Spring/Summer Collection
The backdrop for Lagerfeld's show was a gauzy scrim etched with flowers that ran up and over the length of the runway, forming a canopy of sorts, signaling the designer’s newfound lightness, and a feeling decidedly more romantic than most of his work for Fendi.
The collection had all the right elements- dreamy palettes, faded pastels, controlled volume... But for some reason, I particularly didn't care for the pieces one way or the other. Maybe it was its lack of direction, maybe it was the lingerie motif which added nothing to the pieces, but largely, it was an empty collection- full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
