Fendi SS17: The Sweet Dream

Palazzo Fendi | Palazzo Fendi Shop Window | Fendi Ginza | Fendi Galeries Lafayette

You know you’ve got it bad for a fashion collection when you even adore the shop window displays. The little lorry is a Fendi signature display item and it’s colour and decorations changes with the collections; this time it’s covered in pink meringues. The (supersized) paper plate with the bags is one of my favourite items, making the bags appear like sweets on a tray — I’m so borrowing that idea for future photo stylings. There is another very lovely part of Fendi’s current window displays; and that’s the sculptures featured in the shop windows around the world. Let’s take a closer look at those!

The Sweet Dream

Fendi collaborated with German artist Anke Eilergerhard to create the spring/summer window display art installations; in the shape of an exhibition called ‘The Sweet Dream’. Anke Eilergerhard’s main medium to work with is silicone, which she pipes with a pastry bag, making it look as if it was cream or frosting. Combined with pretty porcelain, the futuristic pastry-like sculptures truly fit the techno rococo concept of the spring-summer collection. Below is a video posted by Fendi about the making of the sculptures.

I like the aqua-blue sculpture on display in Fendi Ginza and the pink and aubergine sculpture, to be seen in Fendi Milano, the best. I hope I will have a chance to see the latter before the exhibition “closes” in June, that means when it’s time for the sales and then the autumn-winter displays.

What do you think about the Fendi SS17 art?

Puffin Perfect Outfit

Lindybop Hillary Tea Dress (Plus Size) | Monki Pompom Beret | Fendi Kan I Bag | Evans Velour Hoodie (Plus Size) | Erstwilder Ollie the Brave Brooch | Emily Temple Cute Glitter Ballet Shoes

A puffin print dress! How awesomely adorable is that?! I knew the moment I saw it that I just had to create an outfit around it. A stylish retro lady with a Little Miss Quirky-twist. For those who prefer a more classic {if an outfit featuring a puffin print dress could ever be called that} retro/otome approach the velour hoodie can easily be replaced with a cute cardigan, but I’m sticking to ‘classic’ Little Miss Quirky-style and and going with the velour. As the weather is not warm enough yet {unless you’re lucky enough to live somewhere it’s summer in February} to allow for bare legs a pair of pretty tights will complete the look.

Fendi Spring-Summer 2017

Posted in Bags & Purses, Couture


I’ve been terribly slow at posting and unfortunately due to this I never got around to writing about my favourite collection from the fashion week(s) – taking place in September last year(!) – but here it finally is: Fendi Spring-Summer 2017. The collection is wonderful mix between almost military style prints in the form of the classic Fendi stripes and khaki with floral leather embellishments, inspired by palatial plasterwork; 1920s-style lingerie in sorbet colours, apron-style skirts and dresses at times leaving very little to the imagination; floral brocades paired with the futuristic and currently very on-trend athletic wear, in the shape of rugby-striped knit booties and sneakers – all combined in to what was referred to as techno rococo, influenced by Capodimonte porcelain and a modern day Marie Antoinette, according to Karl Lagerfeld.

My absolute favourite item from this collection is the Kan I bag with the scalloped edges (the Kan I debuted already in the current resort collection, but it doesn’t feature the scallops, and it’s all about those) – so cute yet still very contemporary. I’m already saving up for it, so I’ll be ready for when everything arrives at the shops at the end of March. The big question is which colour to get? So far I can tell it’ll come in pink (not for me), black (with gold hardware, which is also not for me), light blue, and white. Surprisingly enough the white one is my favourite so far – it kind of looks like stylised lace, which greatly appeals to me, and let’s face it – it can after all be dressed up with charms and straps!

Speaking of charms; aren’t the pineapple ones (although they look more like raspberries to me) just darling? I’m also contemplating one of those, but the bag is my first priority – so budget allowing maybe there’ll be a pineapple-raspberry in my future too. The pineapples come in aqua and yellow (seen above) as well as pink, orange, blue, and white (not pictured in this post).

Fendi also debuted other, smaller, charms called the ABClick, which are already available – in gold-coloured metal, and I’m here hoping to see some silver further on. ;)

Slipper Shoes

Posted in Little Miss Quirky

Photos from Fendi.

Fendi’s pre-fall collection consists of daywear nightwear; i.e. pyjamas, nighties, robes and slippers! It looks terribly cosy and comfy – especially the shoes, which are more like platform slippers really – while perhaps not being the easiest to coordinate in a daily outfit. If I was to pick a pair, then the (bottom right) navy/black ones are the cutest in my opinion.

What do you think? Wear the slippers out of the house, or keep them in the bedroom?

{Lovely Label} Fendi – Valentine Monsters & Love Bugs

Bag Bugs Shawl | Micro Baguette | Heart Pom Pom Charms | Crystal Bugs Bag Charm | Bag Bugs Wrappy | Tube Wallet On Chain | Bag Bug | Micro Peekaboo

Red isn’t a favourite colour of mine but still I can’t help but to covet this Valentines collection from Fendi–I think it’s all in the little heart-shaped rhinestone eyes on some of the items. My favourites are the heart pom poms and the wallet on a chain.

On another note, I do think they should have renamed the Valentines bag bugs to love bugs! Don’t you?

Happy Valentines Day to you!
