Red is the season of the color of the accent. Successfully clearer than it was in Fendi Fall 2017. To give up a lot of footwear options, designers Karl Lagerfeld and Silvia Venturini Fendi emit a style of boot in the color of the two hot red lines.
The over-the-knee, pointed-toe style, referred to as cuissardes in show notes, was done in either stretch patent fire-engine red or a velvet cabernet shade. Elastic ribbing gave them a fitted shape. Paired with mainly warm neutrals and a Prince of Wales check, they underscored the overall importance of red as a key pop hue.
The show notes vaguely cited a “cinematic character” roaming the streets of (where else?) Rome, Fendi’s home. In boots this bold, she surely wouldn’t go incognito.
