Inside the Fendi Fall 2016 Couture Anniversary Show
It is going to be hard to show up an anniversary like Fendi. This year marks the Italian fashion house’s 90th anniversary since its founding, and Karl Lagerfeld would not let it pass by unnoticed. To sum it up, we’ll say: Trevi fountain, top supermodels, walking on water and fairy tales, but that would simply not do this couture show justice. So sit back and enjoy a fashion performance as KOKET takes you inside the Fendi Fall 2016 couture anniversary show.

Fresh from the Paris shows, Fendi packed up its crew and headed to its home town of Rome for a dazzling couture show full of the house’s signature material: fur. Before the show, guests mingled in a whimsical futuristic installation of the brand’s famous furry bag bugs dangling from above.
Karl Lagerfeld’s current muse, Kendall Jenner, opened the show in a blue gray astrakhan coat with a full skirt, strutting down the Trevi fountain walkway. That’s right, we said Trevi fountain. The iconic Baroque masterpiece served as the backdrop to this elegant show, fresh after a $2.4 million rehab. Each of the top fashion designers 46 looks were paraded down a clear runway on top of the fountains pools, by fashion model muses like Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid and Ruth Bell.
The show was entitled Legends and Fairytales, after Lagerfeld was inspired by a 1914 book of fairy tales, East of the Sun and West of the Moon. The fur accompanied looks were full of romantic and whimsical touches like bell sleeves, empire waists, floral details and lace. What is truly sensational however, is the amount of labor and detail it took to create this special collection.
Just like Fendi’s show on the Great Wall of China, the 90th anniversary show is one for the books. As a testament to the Fendi fashion house, and the talented Karl Lagerfeld, this fur fashion powerhouse is at the top of their game.
The famous fashion atelier is not the only brand with decadent furs. KOKET’s softgoods collection offers sumptuous home décor composed of genuine, natural fur. Indulge in the ultimate luxury with a throw, pillow or cowhide rug from this lavish collection.
