Milan MFW: Fendi SS18

The FENDI SS18 menswear collection graced us with wearable style, mingling suede sportswear with tailored shorts and trousers. Think office-wear meets Pop Art. Consistency is the word that springs to mind. Consistency both in colours and patterns, while commenting on the mundanity of the working environment.


Notably, Fendi commissioned Sue Tilley, aka Big Sue, who is perhaps best known as the subject of Lucien Freud’s Benefits Supervisor Sleeping. Tilley was asked to provide designs on the theme of office-life to be used throughout this collection. Her visuals are echoed throughout the collection in its neutral colours as well as the lampshade and banana-skin prints. Light beige, cool blue and the odd blush pink were the anchor colours throughout the show. Tailored shorts as well as loose trousers added a school-boy vibe.


Accessories-wise, baseball caps, tinted sunglasses and man-bags featured heavily, adding a casual, summer vibe to otherwise smart outerwear. The Fendi branding is subtle but noticeable – a Fendi belt, a long chain with the F logo, as well as a dark brown t-shirt with a double F nestled under a suede-fur jacket.



The yellow tinted sunglasses pair nicely with the Andy Warhol vibe Silvia Venturini Fendi was going for, particularly when noticing that the yellow pattern splashed across some of the silk shirts is the peel of a banana.
