How is it Fendi time already?!

And by that, I don't mean that Fendi has any special significance (except for being, you know, Fendi) but that it places us, chronologically speaking, in the midst of the third fashion week out of the four. It feels like yesterday I was dying for New York Fashion Week to begin.

It happens every season, too. I wait months and months for the next Fashion Month and then each city whizzes by as I (and everyone else) get lost in the sea of architectural volumes, metaphorical prints, liberal use of lace and this or that theme.

Karl Lagerfeld speaks a pretty easy language for Fendi, where I see him more, ahem, tempered than for his own line or for Chanel. It's also a pretty easy language because so many of the season's proferred trends arose on the black-and-white striped runway.

Strategically placed cut-outs favoured shoulders a lot this season, and Fendi was no different.

Mixing prints is something bloggers foresaw for a while... and the designers kind of listened, didn't they?

I've been spoiled this season! My penchant for long, black, sheer and lace has been so fitfully satisfied that I could just lie down and die happy, but then Paris is coming, and I'll bet I'd die happier after Elie Saab and Ann Demeulemeester.

Much like Jonathan Saunders, Fendi envisions women wearing light knits combined with ultra-light fabrics like silk (the sheer-er, the better!). I like it.

The season's obsession with sportiness and utility was reflected in looks like the ones above.

But then, the Fendi woman is very much so a lady, a sophisticated yet playful one, that enjoys volume play and experiments with colours and cuts.

All in all a great collection. Not as good in my book as SS2011, but delightful still.
