Milan Spring 09: Fendi

It has been SUCH a long time since Karl has put out a collection at Fendi that has made me weak at the knees. I was thinking about the collection while I was doing the dishes (glamorous!) and I kept getting this association with some kind of antique futuristic clothes. Not at all retro-modern, but clothes that people in the early 1900's thought that people from the future would wear. They're delicate and ladylike but visionary.

I love everything about this. The mix of materials is outstanding and I love the simple shape of the shift dress. Every piece feels very precious. I wake up most days with hair like this, perhaps one of these days I'll try going out like that.

See? From the future!
I'm really into beige lately, I wonder what that says about me.

Wowee Zowee! This is super babeliscious. The blouse is conservative, almost nun-like, but combined with the tightly cinched waist and the different sheer materials on the skirt makes it all very sexy! That top lace layer is like the bacon in the brekfast sandwich of my life. ESSENTIAL.

A little structure, a little lace, and a little superhero blue belt. Um. Yeah. So. Cool.

Doily shirtdress + graphic waist belt = 100% Awesome.

If I was some kind of Hollywood starlet, I would be frantically placing a call to my stylist right now to secure me this dress for whatever the most important event I'd have to attend in my life. And then I would wear it to sleep and to go to the supermarket and everyday forever and ever.

And the shoes? Holy mole! I'm totally into those clear window booties man, can you imagine how cool those must look when you wear tights? INSANE!

Thank god for Karl!

i LOVE the hair. love love love. i wish people were going out with hair like this. i would give them such adoring looks all the time!!!
having that volume placed over the narrow bottom skirt/layer is so brilliant. i've finally met a pencil skirt i would happily wear. it's funny, just that hint, just the mere reference of a fitted shape some how completely redefines the silhouette so that despite it being technically quite full, the impression is not one of a bubble. for the record, i'm a big fan of volume anyway, but i like this way of making it maybe more tolerable to those who are hesitant.
