For Fendi Fall/Winter 2023 Womenswear, Kim Jones explores classicism and elegance through the subtle lens of subversion. The collection plays on two parallel tracks: the exploration of deconstruction; the analysis of gender archetypes and feminine sophistication.

The Fendi Womenswear collection features masculine tailoring with utilitarian deconstruction. Asymmetricality also takes the spotlight in this illusionary show; the first look demonstrates Jones’ exploration of this. An asymmetrical V-neck buttoned sweater with no clear tailoring is paired with a structured leather skirt. The juxtaposition between classicism and unique self-expression exemplifies the Italian fashion house’s yearning to deconstruct boundaries, destroy binaries, and subvert expectations.
The collection introduced two newest handbags. The Fendi Multi references the multipurpose sentiment that the brand is so often contingent with, and the C’Mon bag to match the sophistication of the collection. The duality of Silvia Venturini Fendi’s design draws upon the house as a whole.
