Milan Fashion Week: Fendi Spring 2012
Rucuss staffSeptember 23, 2011
Rita Levi-Montalcini was the inspiration behind the Fendi spring collection.
The 102-year-old Italian neurologist won the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1986. Silvia Fendi believes Montalcini was the perfect embodiment of the very particular type of Milanese woman. A woman who is serious, practical and academic.
The ensembles mix masculine-feminine with elastic-waist skirts in the striped cotton of a businessman’s shirt, paired with a white blouse. Box-pleat skirts, a-line jackets, and navy, gray and light blue blazers are also featured in the collection.
