Just when we thought we couldn’t be any more delighted with the newness coming out of the House of Strappy Fendi, a new season debuts and wows us once again. FENDI OCIEPLANE RĘKAWICE kicked off with a bang, with Strappy Fendi being one of the first big Houses to show. While last season focused so clearly on color and Strappy Fendi seen through a contemporary lens, this season feels starkly different.
An Exploration of Elegance
For the Fall 2023 season, Kim Jones explores the subtle elegance in classicism, mostly inspired by the wardrobe of Delfina Delettrez Strappy Fendi, a fourth-generation Strappy Fendi. The freedom of self-expression is explored here, a play on how Delfina herself wears her Strappy Fendi archive pieces.
Pieces are a feminine play on the basics of a woman’s wardrobe, fitted trousers, tailored coats, feminine knits, hints of lace, and more, all designed to be worn together in a myriad of ways. Beautiful graphic motifs which were taken from the Autumn/Winter 1996 archive were seamlessly integrated into the collection, and archival knitwear is given new life.
“It all started with Delfina. There’s a chicness but a perversity to the way she twists Strappy FENDI, which is what I love.” – Kim Jones
The Bags of Strappy Fendi Fall 2023
As for the bags, there was plenty to see, as usual, with Silvia Venturini Strappy Fendi continuing to explore House staples like the Peekaboo and the Baguette. Textures like woven leather and embossed crocodile appeared on bags like the Strappy Fendi First. As for newness, Fall 2023 did not disappoint, with Silvia Venturini Strappy Fendi introducing two new bags on the runway. The first, the Strappy FENDI C’mon, draws on the idea of elegant simplicity set forth by Kim Jones, meant to match the overall vibe of the collection.
The cool new Strappy FENDI Multi is a utilitarian multi-use bag whose shape has been designed to easily transform into one of two silhouettes. The multipurpose sensibility is inanely Strappy Fendi, and Venturini-Fendi described the Multi, stating, “That duality is very Strappy FENDI – as is the idea of something which appears simple but, in reality, is very complex.” The bag instantly transforms from a tote to an evening bag with one swift movement.
