Fendi’s Couture Show, Rome…

If your like me then your Instagram feed this week will have been filled with all the latest from Paris Couture Week & if there was any show I could have gone to see it would have been Fendi & it’s jaw dropping location, Trevi Fountain Rome.

Fendi had a lot to celebrate not only has it reached the milestone of its 90th  year in business, it was also able to utilize the newly restored Trevi Fountain in a first-of-its-kind runway production for the anniversary show.

The collection, entitled “Legends and Fairy Tales,” with models walking on a clear platform that gave the illusion that they were walking on water. Each look was accented with fur — from subtle trims to full-on shawls, dresses & intarsia coats. With motifs that included florals & fairy tale-like art scenes. Former Fendi face Kendall Jenner opened the show, while Paris Couture Week’s breakout star Bella Hadid closed in a majestic fur cape.

I Want

The past year or two I have started adding more trousers to my wardrobe, I do enjoy finding a great pair of jeans but I don’t feel there very ‘me’ so trousers which I find more fashion led have been creeping in. I wear them for plenty of different occasions from work where I might wear a high waisted belted skinny leg trouser or out for dinner & a wide culotte there are plenty of style to pick from that you can pick one that flatters your shape.

I am particularly loving these striped trousers from Dorothy Perkins. I think they are the perfect piece to add to your wardrobe now to wear in Summer with a simple mustard or khaki cami so you can add a splash of colour & its a simple piece. Then you can carry it through into your Autumn/ Winter wardrobe with a jumper tucked inside & a big chunky knit scarf.  AA x
