Entwined in an urban jungle, the Spring/Summer 2019 Collection by Karl Lagerfeld delights in the symmetries of the natural world, where the pragmatic and the exotic combine. Utilitarian romance abounds in a mineral palette of sage, cognac, burgundy, tangerine, optic white, denim, and sand. Garments are engineered for an evocative, feminine line.
Through looking-glass transparency, airy perforations breathe life into contoured masculine shapes: gathered patch pockets, ruched sleeves and a bib collar softens jackets, parkas and fluid blousons in embossed FF logo leather, summer wool, or PVC. Double corsets define a graphic waist sculpted in rich leather or matte poplin, as print organza jacquard and filmy intarsia knits create sensual shadow play. Tessellated patterns swirl in circles of flora and fauna across iridescent silk dresses, refracted furs and full skirts above scuba court shoes and sandals.
Designed by Silvia Venturini Fendi, the Spring/Summer 2019 Accessories Collection features the iconic Peekaboo bag adorned with its DeFender waterproof shell, interchangeable handles and novelty utility pockets: echoing tool belts with pouches for your phone and coins.
The legendary Baguette returns, adorned in fantasy sequin embellishments and featuring a new oversized shape with ultralight glove-soft embossed logo leather that appears also on the new ‘Upside Down’ folding envelope bag with a FF logo clasp.
