Kim Jones Goes Disco for Fendi Spring 2022

Fendi Spring 2022

Milan Fashion Week kicked off strong Wednesday, with one of the most anticipated debuts of the season early on in the lineup: Kim Jones’ sophomore ready-to-wear collection for Fendi. And the designer was ready to party. 

The Italian luxury house’s Spring 2022 women’s line “explores the joyful irreverence that has historically defined the house,” while also pushing “the empowered ease of [Jones’] vision for its future,” according to the show notes. Jones turned the clock back to the ’70s, with a desire to reinterpret “disco-age glamour” for a 2022 shopper, with a little help from a famed Studio 54 regular and friend of Jones’ predecessor at Fendi: the late fashion illustrator Antonio Lopez.

“While I’ve been looking at Karl’s legacy at the house, I’ve also been looking around him, at his contemporaries — at who he was interested in,” Jones said, in a statement. “Lopez was a friend of Karl’s, and has always been someone who inspired me. He was forward thinking; inclusive; looked up to by everyone from Andy Warhol to Steven Meisel and David Hockney. I wanted to introduce him to a new generation.”
