    According to Vogue Mexico, the pieces Kate is wearing in the editorial are from the same collection.

    Having just seen an image of Kate on the runway on Mail online, I have no idea what facelift she has done but it looks AWFUL

    the collection is pretty but has a fair share of horrific looks

    Impressive set and gorgeous casting, but the clothes are really a lackluster. It seems that all the fabrics that Pierpaolo left this season were sent to Kim's house.

    The casting was cringe...Lila Moss walks funny lol!

    I actually liked the boots, everything else can go to a charity donation bin outside of a rural town Good Will...

    This collection is worse than MGC for Dior. Cheeeeeeezy and stuffy as hell. It smells of old theater moth balls. Karl, can you see this??!??!

    Few remarks from me:

    1. The collection is a well embroidered disappointment. Comparing this to Silvia's Fall 2019 Couture is offensive for the entire Fendi family and Karl Lagerfeld with his unique concept of Haute Fourrure .
    2. Speaking of, where on earth are the furs?!
    3. I understand that Mr Arnoult decided to send Kim to Fendi before he will take over Dior, but would it be better just to appoint him there straight away? He can't do any worse than MCG and Silvia will just go back to where she is good at: to maintain and develop the splendour and italian elegance of her family house.
    4. Male models with ill fitted dresses are not only sad but comical. You want boy wearing dress and understand its movement? Honey, just get any teenager with passion for drag and problem solved.
    5. Kim's idea of casting is so banal I can't even...he is hiring non stop the same faces and it does not make the presentation more appealing or well-executed. Stop promoting Kate's daughter and bunch of the same people all over again.
    6. If your friend is Max Richter you can't go wrong with music but set design reminds me of McQueen's Voss. The only difference is that the former was shocking spectacle filled with emotions and the later is just over-polished, banal and pretentious copy.

    the set and soundtrack really tried to distract us from the amateurism of it all but they couldn’t. Kim’s lack of experience in couture is apparent. he just couldn’t use the technical mastery of couture to his advantage.

    Everything looks so heavy-handed, ill-fitting and the use of fabrics and colors is questionable. it’s just a very forgettable and unimaginative collection. also, the cast was very try-hard lol

    As expected, he aimed for a more romantic approach which makes me wonder if this is all just a test from LVMH to prepare him for Dior’s womenswear. But even if this is what he would offer for Dior, I wouldn’t be excited either.

    All this hype and this is what we get, a bunch of meh. The casting made me roll my eyes but I’ll admit that the set and music were indeed beautiful.

    I miss Karl and Silvia’s magical haute fourrure collections. Now that was amazing.

    I didn't like it to say the least. It was just like his Dior menswear - from the color palette, the choice of fabrics to the casting which was a cringe fest. Kate was phoning it in as usual and now she is going to push her gnome sized daughter down our throats.
    Looking at the pictures it's apparent that he has no experience in womenswear. There were only few garments which looked decent. The rest was lacking both in design and construction. The fit was abysmal.
    We all know he is not there to do couture but gather all hypebeasts. I find it sad that skilled ateliers are given to people who have no idea how to use them.
    This makes me miss Karl even more.
    Where is fur? Please don't tell me they are going vegan now.

    I watched the show twice, first live and just now again, because I wanted to give it a good look.

    an array of the same silhouette (it’s what I can remember because it was indeed uneventful) with a strong dash of the Roaring 20’s... but not as good.

    20’s gowns despite the pearls and the stones and the fringes are chic, light, feminine, fitting! this was heavy and matronal (Christy’s, Cara’s Naomi’s we’re abominable).
    the Menswear looks were absolutely unnecessary (and bad).
    the only decent looks were Lila’s, Kate and Kiki.

    well thought setting and soundtrack. that’s all.

    poor Silvia, after years of dedication to Fendi and to see this. insulting and shameful. Fendi did not need Kim Jones.

    Where the heck is Silvia??? And since she is a no show, i assumed she have no input in this mess. Because how can you go from the stunning "The Dawn of Romanity" to this. The only good thing about this are the set and the music.

    The collection is badly cut with bad fabrics and gimmicks jewelry. The opening look is so sloppy. The outfit on Kate is bad. The turquoise outfit on Lucas is frumpy, looks like he wear his grandma dress. The rest of menswear is pointless. I only like the outfit on Lila and Adwoah. The dangly earrings look like a cheap knock of from Dior Couture from John Galliano. Kim should just focus on menswear because if he is gonna takes over Dior than he is no better than MGC.

    What I don't understand is he have the same atelier as Silvia and Karl but the result is so different. Even if he doesn't know how to make couture the atelier can possibly make better outfits on their own. Then why some of the outfits is so frumpy and clumsy?

    Poor Silvia, she was thriving on her own but the greedy suits don't want creativity, they only want to chasing clout. I don't need to read the reviews but I already known the hype beasts and woke Twitter gonna eat this up.

    I enjoyed it. Sweeping gowns, big jewelry, cool set, memorable casting. What's not to like?

    I can already tell the likes of Alexander Fury, Tim Blanks, and Bryanboy are going to ejaculate themselves all over this mess.

    I cannot think of a better example that illustrates what exactly is wrong with this industry now. Hiring a designer with zero experience in womenswear, to head the womenswear division of a brand (including couture!) which is in no need of fixing, and already has one of the most competent designers working in fashion today….all because said new designer may bring more influencers on board, and be a hit on social media.

    This is not a good collection. The colours are uninspiring and dull, the silhouettes are dated, the embroidery feels so overdone. In essence, it reminds me of some of the awful sketches I did when I was in high school. Everything just feels heavy handed here. On the one hand he’s trying to show he thinks he knows what couture is about, and on the other he’s trying to be edgy with it. It doesn’t work. I am a fan of what he’s doing at Dior, at least most of it. But on this occasion, he’s not had a good start at all.

    When I heard of this appointment I said it could go one of two ways; either these executives are stable geniuses who have made the most unlikely appointment to create something new and ground-breaking, or it’s just some part of the growing list of daft appointments fashion executives have been making over the last 10 years. Sadly, the latter seems to be the case, once again! I wonder how Silvia feels about this especially after her last two women's collections which were some of the best I've seen in years!

    You all tried to warn us about Kim Jones taking over Fendi but I tried to be optimistic...

    Tbh, this is worst than Olivier Rousteing's couture debut, maybe as terrible as Raf's FW 2013 Dior HC collection and more depressing than the Bill Gayten for Dior HC circus collection.

    It is a terrible collection.

    Fendi's heritage is fur. They started RTW in the 70's and Couture 5 years ago.
    Fendi has always stand out by being different. Obviously Karl wanted it to be different from Chanel but also different from all the Italian brands. He hated the idea of Redcarpet dressing and all I see her is an attempt to do red carpet dressing in the most expected and conventional way.

    Fendi's challenged over the years has been to play with fur. And they succeeded. They made tulles and chiffon looks like fur, they shaved fur to look like velvet, they made feathers looks like mink and Fendi HC has become quite famous now for their craftsmanship.

    Silvia's only Couture collection was fabulous because she understood all of that (and she knows the lifestyle of those rich clients). Her collection looked like a collection of a fur and RTW luxury brand. It was wearable, pragmatic, luxurious, very detailed with a touch of extravagance. For the irreverence, she did prints...Which is something quite rare today in Couture. She added her touch of romanticism (when Karl did romanticism it was sometimes very fairytale-is and sugary) but it was really a grown woman type of collection.

    And I must say that I'm very disappointed by the tailoring from a menswear designer.

    Kate is surely Kim's best friend. She had one of the most decent dress...
    It seems like the dress on Naomi was advised by Edward to sabotage her.

    Those women did not look good and they are the demographic of Couture clients. Those clothes made them look bigger and I don't know anybody who wants to look bigger. I'm not commenting the gimmicky mess that was the menswear.

    Now I'm afraid for the RTW. Kim's menswear is all about logos, collaborations and styled separates. I don't want this at Fendi. They have managed to make the designs stronger despite the use of logos and Fendi has been very much a creative powerhouse for quite some time...

    I feel bad for Karl who did not have a Pierre Bergé who could have criticized in the press his mediocre successors.

    lol the contour on demis face is the most couture thing about this.


    Also Naomi is wearing a duvet cover from the new Fendi Alta Home collection.
