Milan Fashion Week has kicked off with a star-studded show from Fendi. The fashion house showed its Spring Summer 2024 collection to a swathe of eager celebs, including original supermodels, Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Amber Valetta and Linda Evangelista.
They were joined by Hollywood actresses Naomi Watts, Demi Moore, Christina Ricci and Gwendoline Christie.
The front row was a sea of chic neutrals, with Linda and Kate sporting simple black designs.
Meanwhile, Naomi Campbell paired a beige structured blazer and draped skirt with heeled knee-high boots.
Naomi Watts donned a fashion forward chocolate brown satin shirt and skirt, with pleats and gladiator style fringing by Fendi. The 54-year-old actress paired the ensemble with uncharacteristic combat boots.
A new generation of stars also sat front row, with Daisy Jones and the Six star, Suki Waterhouse, cuddling up to British pal Cara Delevingne. Suki donned a grey skirt and zip-up shirt combo, while Cara went simple in a grey turtle-neck tank and velvet skirt.
Meanwhile, on the runway, the wares were given a pop of orange colour. While most of the outfits remained within a neutral colour palette, pops of orange were incorporated into geometric fabrics and accessories.
Bold orange shoes, bags and gloves were teamed with
The collection featured the classic Fendi ‘F’ logo print, which was created by Karl Lagerfeld for the brand in 1966.
The SS24 womenswear collection was designed by Kim Jones, who incorporated “masculine tailoring” into coats and trousers. According to show notes, the collection celebrated “a certain Roman freedom” in dressing.
“In Rome there is an elegance in ease and not caring what anybody thinks – that is the real luxury,” Jones said in the show notes. “In this collection I wanted to reflect that.
“It is not about the spectacle of being looked at, but the reality of wearing and the confidence and chicness that comes with it.”
