Fendi is pretty much the number one It brand of 2018, and at the S/S 19 show, the Fendi looks on the front row were as important as the new Karl Lagerfeld–designed looks coming down the runway. Particularly noteworthy was Winnie Harlow in a full Fila x Fendi look (and Anna Wintour's attendance, of course). The runway was filled with a slew of major models (as in Kendall Jenner, Kaia Gerber, Adwoa Aboah, and Gigi and Bella Hadid) wearing sporty-chic looks.
There was plenty of star power dripping with Fendi in the front row, including newlyweds Chiara Ferragni and Fedez.
Two takeaways, courtesy of Bella Hadid: Utility bags are the new belt bags, and bike shorts will still be around next spring.
Sometimes, we can’t help but wish all brands were just like Max Mara—creating cool yet timeless clothing that may not be the most out-there but, for that very reason, proves worth the investment time and time again. This characteristic is, of course, very much prevalent in the designs seen in Max Mara’s S/S 19 runway show, just as it has been in those of seasons past. It’s no wonder why classic-style expert Olivia Palermo is a longtime fan.
The show opened with this stunning yet simple camel-colored coat, with a ruffle detail to die for.
This look epitomizes the Italian brand’s aforementioned aesthetic and ideology: an all-black outfit that is so understated yet so amazing at the same time.
