Kim Jones Makes His Prepared-to-Put on Debut at Fendi

Just below a month in the past, designer Kim Jones made his debut as creative director of Fendi with an haute couture collection which paid tribute to the Bloomsbury Set. But fashion moves fast, and on Wednesday, Jones presented his first ready-to-wear collection for the Italian brand. 

For Fall 2021, Jones looked to the five Fendi sisters for inspiration, drawing from their wardrobes for a collection packed with deceptively simple basics. By keeping the color palette limited to neutrals — tawny and chocolatey browns, creamy whites and beiges, dove greys and olive greens, sophisticated blacks — he was able to really show off what he can bring to womenswear from his background in menswear. “Fun isn’t always just about bright colors,” he wrote in the show notes. “It can be about really luxurious self indulgence, which pleases the person wearing it more than anyone else.”
