(8th December 2015) Lively, colourful and ironic. The FENDI KIDS Spring/Summer 2016 Collection is more vibrant and surprising than ever, celebrating the summer holidays with a joyful atmosphere. A floral invasion of Sterlizia (Bird of Paradise) flowers and Orchids in contrast with little monsters and funny light bulbs, while daring graphics and colour combinations enhance the Roman Maison codes.
The link with the Men’s and Women’s Collections is more evident than ever. Patterns inspired by the adult’s wardrobe play on children’s little garments. From the baby to the junior, enhancing irony as a distinctive element of the Fendi DNA.
The Sterlizia flower blooms together with the Orchid, which is one of the key themes of the last Fall/Winter 2015-16. It becomes lighter in the new tones of pale lilac, water-green and total white. Flowers pervade the little girls’ dresses in chambray, in washed poplin and in tone on tone jacquard, decorating also the more elegant ones in silk and cotton organza. The Sterlizia flower also pervades dresses and trousers with all-over patterns in delicate shades of pink, blue and yellow, while blooming on the t-shirt embellished with bows and small flounces. The little girls become more feminine than ever with refined plissé and frills!
This season’s keywords are colour and energy! The light bulbs lit-up the junior boy garments with lamps of light exploding on shirts and t-shirts with all-over patterns, or in the patches decorating polo shirts and striped t-shirts. The comfortable and sporty bermuda shorts are embroidered with light bulbs on the side pockets. Colours are bright and vivid: green, blue and mustard yellow.
A new interpretation of the Fendi logo: colourful, scattered and mixed-up again in a surprising way creating a compact and captivating pattern. A simple and subtle element that is taken from the Men’s and Women’s Collections, playing on different colour combinations. For the little girl, the chromatic palette goes form pale yellow to lilac and water green with light notes of coral. It defines colour blocks on sweaters, k-ways, sweatshirts and lively dresses, pervading also the full range of accessories. For the little boy, the sporty mood is emphasized by saturated colours, as the mustard yellow and the khaki green of the parka. A perfect garment for spending the summer evenings together with friends.
The little Bag Bugs are more cheerful than ever! They are ready to celebrate the arrival of a sunny and irresistible summer season. Splash monsters become gentler on the girls dresses thanks to the angelic gaze of their little eyes and to the new pattern drawing Bag Bugs on the dresses and t-shirts in crêpe de chine. The little monsters look like bouquets of flowers on pleasant backgrounds of pink and yellow. The splash monster plays tennis on the jersey t-shirt, insufing the atmosphere with energy and dynamism, while mini Bag Bugs bright-up bikinis and swimsuits for the beach holidays. For the little boys, the eyes of the little monsters keep their captivating gaze enhanced by small glasses in bright tones of yellow, blue and red, while the splash monsters peek out from the little pockets of shirts and bermuda shorts. They then define a line, a graphic element featured on t-shirts embroideries and prints, piping shirts, sweatshirts, swimsuits and sneakers.
Irony and elegance perfectly blend with the sartorial details. An interplay that creates romantic dresses in neutral tones for the little girls. Silk and organza are decorated with Orchids and Sterlizia flowers, while the FENDI Roma pattern, inspired by a Karl Lagerfeld’s sketch from 1988, paints dresses, tops and sweaters for a perfect party attire! For a special occasion, graphic lines and colour notes live-up the basic garments for the boys: the suit combines the jacket and the bermuda shorts paired with the light bulb patterned shirt. The shades of beige give dynamism to the Microtex stripes, while painting polo and shirts in linen.
Vivacity and lightness are the leading elements also for the babies! Fendi has created a complete wardrobe to be worn from the very first days. Playsuits in piqué and jersey are paired with socks and hats embroidered in pink, blue and white tones. Perfect for strolling in the park, by the seaside or in the mountains, the denim blue stroller is elegant yet sporty. It is enhanced by patches featuring light bulbs, little apples and captivating eyes. For a very special occasion, as a party or a ceremony dedicated to the babies, elegance is perfectly blended with the floral theme. Orchids and Sterlizia flowers are enhanced by lilac shades on playsuits, jacquard dresses in lurex and little romantic smocks in organza embellished with flounces and delicate embroidery. For the baby boys, the little blazer is paired with the bermuda shorts and the striped waistcoat is defined by soft tones of beige, milk white and pale blue. The colours become more vibrant when the graphic elements taken from the adult wardrobe pervade little dresses, playsuits, mini bath suits and the complete range of nursery accessories. The light bulbs, the “Color Block” of the scattered Fendi logo and the Bag Bugs with their little glasses create a never-ending game and a continuous surprising effect!
