Fendi has always been strong on accessories, and the Italian fashion house’s Spring 2019 show was no different.
Functionality and utility took center stage, with new ways to carry items. From outside leather pockets attached to clear bags, clear coats, or belts, it was all about ease and convenience.
Models bedecked with belts bags also carried satchels, underscoring that they needn’t be an either/or proposition. Hand-free can be paired with hand-held and still look great (we’ll leave out commentary on the biker shorts).
Fendi also caught the wave of giant pockets, which seem to be the next evolution in close-to-the-body accessorizing like belt bags or cross bodies. Again, these were paired with hand-held satchels, making sure editors and buyers don’t think the pockets are meant to replace bags.
JEWELRY & SUNGLASSES
Jewelry was bright and colorful, redefining the hoop and button earring by having enamel styles clip higher up on the ear and not just the lobe. Fendi also brought the choker back in open-ended front collars with metal or floral tips.
Sunglasses where cheery, with almond-shaped mini sunglasses with polka dot tops.
