The Fendi Spring 2017 show is summed up in one outfit it's the photo above. Top model Stella Lucia wears the look and she embodies the juvenile-meets-refined style of the clothing. Firstly, she has the Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen twin face, so it's perfection when she wears a half up, half down hairdo consisting of barrettes and pigtails.
Stella's terry cloth coat also reflects a youthful optimism. The multicolored floral embroidery offset by white creates a graffiti effect that's fresh like New York City hip-hop, but also fresh like spring flowers. The coat is structured like a society lady's coat, which contrasts with the very fun embroidery. Other great details are the ribbons on each side of the waist that mirror Stella's pair of side ponytails. It's splendid symmetry. The sewn-in belt is a fun feature that cinches the waist, yet the coat also buttons up and down.
The accessories slay. The boots that Karl Lagerfeld presented at the Fendi Fall 2016 Couture show in Rome return for this show and they're welcome. Clearly, those boots stole the show and are a bestseller. Their sportiness translates into versatility that can be worn casually with jeans or with sexy pencil skirts. Don't forget the classy Victorian-ness of the booties. The purse is classically-shaped, but reinvented with scalloped edges and fairytale embroidery. It also looks very roomy and ready to fit all that a woman needs to live her life.
