Fendi Has a Little Fun in the Sun for Spring 2017

Summer is about fun in the sun, and Silvia Venturini got straight to the point at yesterday’s Fendi Spring 2017 Menswerar show. She transported her audience from the runways of Milan to a backyard complete with swimming pool, Fendi-diving board and AstroTurf, tapping into the resort looks of mid-century artists and academics. Backstage, her mood board was filled with images of Albert Einstein on the beach, Pablo Picasso in a pair of terrycloth shorts, David Hockney in a bumblebee shirt and Salvador Dalí enjoying his summer holidays. Emulating their laid-back resortwear, she sent out a collection that felt very luxurious—as Fendi is wont to do—but still captured the carefree spirit of summer.
