Silvia Venturini Fendi’s Fall 2016 Menwear Collection is A Riot Of Furry Monsters Hail the Arrival of Posh Pajama Dressing for Men
Childlike creature comforts was the theme at Fendi Fall 2016 Menswear Collection with Silvia Venturini Fendi’s posh pajama parade. Fendi lent and anthropomorphic identity to her monster, collection with cartoon faces and adorable huge eyes. One graphic tee even had a cartoon angsty teen with a “FENDI” speech bubble, signaling the return of the logo trend for this season. Backstage models were caught letting out ferocious yawns and emerged onto the runway in belted plaid sweatsuit sets and robe pajamas as if coming from a slumber party. The models descended from a lush carpeted staircase onto the runway with major bedhead and oversized looks meant for exclusively for cozy comfort , with many wearing matching fuzzy slippers. The loose trousers, chunky knits, and shearling looks that followed were slightly more publicly acceptable attire due to the addition of bright yellow and pastel pink, cobalt blue, and ending with serious monochrome black looks. The popular cookie monster faces were replaced by other cute characters popping out of breast pockets and on backpacks or totes. A zipper made up the nose alongside two eyes on a black shearling bomber. Silvia Venturini Fendi noted her inspiration for the collection stating, “I’m rarely at home, but it’s my dream,” she said. “When I am there, I work a lot in my bed.” She succeeded by creating a blend of homebody wear and luxurious outerwear to layer on for winter. Fendi capitalized further on the trend of pajama dressing seen underneath the heavy layers. The delightful and surprising childlike elements were the bright sparks in a collection of luxury and splendor.
