Fall 2018 has been an homage to the decade of excess. The '80s are everywhere this season, and Fendi found a way to incorporate some of the best aesthetics from this season’s source of inspiration.

Plaids, checks, and tartans in brown and grey tones laid the foundation for the collection. The Fall looks were also sprinkled with sweaters with a Fendi logo splashed across the chest, reminiscent of the original Fila logo created by Scottish artist Hey Reilly. The collection also included a few select capes, puffers, and of course, trenches, for all your fall weather needs. The looks beautifully blended leather and fur, and a peep of some old Western influence as well with the oversized snakeskin boots. The preppy-meets-feminine looks translated well, blending embroidered dresses and geometric patterns with bold colors such as plum, olive, and even yellow.

Besides the collection being a highlight of Milan Fashion Week, there was other news to note, most notably the collaboration behind the collection: the creative duo of Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld and Silvia Venturini Fendi. Also, on Tuesday, LVMH named the executive of Christian Dior, Serge Brunschwig, the new head of Fendi. This is following the former CEO Pietro Beccari taking over Dior last November.
