To mark 50 years since Karl Lagerfeld was appointed as Fendi’s creative director, the fur-focused Italian house launches its first Haute Couture collection. On Wednesday in Paris, Lagerfeld debut its first “Haute Fourrure” collection which normally consisted almost entirely of fur. The glorious Théâtre de Champs-Élysees venue was filled with LVMH royalty, and friends of the group who all wanted to attended this significant event.
The controversial 36-fur creations featured floor-length minks, multi-colored stoles, intarsia coats and textured capes in shades of brown, grey, cream and pink – some even had feathers and floral appliques to add some extra flavor.
Outside the show, PETA staged a protest with gruesome signage and aggressive shouting, but considering Fendi’s long-standing reputation
we doubt that the couture buyers in attendance will be deterred.
