Fendi pays homage to artist Sophie Taeuber-Arp for fall 2015

Karl Lagerfeld and Silvia Venturini Fendi presented some days ago in Milan their fall 2015 collection that was built on contrasts and explored the idea of geometry and volume. The collection was inspired by the work of legendary Swiss painter, sculptor, dancer and designer Sophie Taeuber-Arp (1889-1943), a prominent member of the Zurich Dada group and one of the most important ambassadors of geometric abstraction of the 20th century.

Taeuber-Arp’s sophisticated compositions that explored the innate expressive power of color, line and form were translated into a series of all-over printed coats, patchwork-inspired leather overcoats, oversized duvet dresses and playful skirts that paid homage to the artist’s innate talent and bold originality. The show’s invitations and space walls were also adorned with Taeuber-Arps iconic patterns, which were also present in a series of graphic bags and purse add-ons.

The geometric influences could be also seen in a series of skirts that were adorned with leather panels that were adjusted to the skirts’ hips, making them look as if they were modern sculptures. The clothes were accompanied by a series of impressive Shearling bags and boots with transparent Perspex heels that put the final touch to an utterly original collection that intelligently ignored all current trends and brought an arty twist to Milan Fashion Week.
