Fendi’s Men’s Collection: Breaking Fashion Boundaries

In a display of highland-inspired menswear during Milan Fashion Week, Silvia Venturini Fendi, the brand’s director of accessories and menswear, drew inspiration from an unexpected muse–Princess Anne. 

According to ABC News, Fendi delved into an aristocratic family’s hope chest, adorning heirlooms with details typically reserved for the feminine domain. 

The result: a gender-busting collection fit for a modern-day royal striding through the highlands.

Describing Princess Anne as “the chicest woman in the world,” Venturini Fendi admired her ability to maintain femininity while donning a uniform, an epitome of masculinity. 

The Fall-Winter 2024-25 collection showcased generous overcoats, leather wellies, and rumpled cloche hats. 

The color palette was reminiscent of a rainy day in the highlands–moss, brown, slate gray, maroon, cornflower blue, and mustard.

Venturini Fendi’s ingenuity blurred the lines between masculinity and femininity, tradition and contemporary streetwear. 

The runway exuded a casual, off-duty vibe. Jackets were often casually flung over arms, signaling the end of the day’s work. 

Following the recent Milan trend, the Fendi logo made a subtle appearance as a geometric repeat pattern on checked double-Fs or covering a portable music speaker in collaboration with French brand Devialet.

Venturini Fendi emphasized the collection’s focus on longevity and creating heirlooms, stating, “to underline garments for life, not use and throw away.”

“I liked the idea of breaking barriers, breaking the masculine and feminine codes, that don’t exist anymore. They shouldn’t exist anymore,’’ Venturini Fendi said as per ABC News
