Attention emo lover boys of 2024, this one’s for you. Silvia Venturini Fendi, the Creative Director of Fendi has carefully crafted a collection that celebrates the inspirations of noble endeavours. By skillfully combining an array of emotional colours with a touch of masculine essence, Fendi’s Fall/Winter 2024 collection is designed to empower and captivate the confident gentlemen of today!
Silvia Venturini described the aesthetic as a blend of “Town & Country” vibes with a touch of British imagery, referring to it as a “Balmoral look”. The collection showcased tartans, twin sets, spacious pleated bermudas, and a fisherman-style coat, all highlighting the functionality of the garments. The impeccable craftsmanship was evident in the luxurious textures and materials used.
Funnily enough, the overall effect was akin to a modern-day Inspector from the future—strolling through town in a sleek, long brown coat, on the hunt for suspects. How intimidating.
For this collection, no such things as a day look versus night look. As the elegant and emo boys effortlessly showcase their ability to dress to impress at any moment. Despite not seeking attention, their presence captivates the gaze of onlookers. Silvia Venturini adds a nostalgic touch to the collection, infusing her country girl upbringing into the designs through needle-punched shearling, suede, and velvety corduroy.
In addition to those factors, the emo colour palette perfectly enhances the collection to an entirely different level. With shades of dark brown, deep olive, rhythmic blue, and burgundy, this combination blends the contrasting styles of maximalism and minimalism into a new concept: the fusion of emo and elegance.
Overall, Silvia Venturini Fendi demonstrates her exceptional talent in defying fashion norms and incorporating human emotions into Fendi Menswear 2024 F.W Collection, which are universally relatable. It would not be surprising if the emo colour palette becomes the fashion industry’s new benchmark this year.
