Paris Couture Week continues with the first Fendi spring 2021 couture show.
The show marks the first women’s and couture collection imagined by Kim Jones, who was appointed artistic director of women’s ready-to-wear and couture at Fendi last September. The appointment marks Jones’ first official foray into women’s clothing design. Jones continues to work as the Creative Director of Dior Men.
Fendi’s upcoming runway show is also the first spring couture show presented by the design house, as in the past it has only created couture collections for fall. Jones designed the Fendi Spring 2021 Couture Collection in collaboration with Silvia Venturini Fendi, who has been the main creative figure behind the design house since Karl Lagerfeld’s death in 2019. Venturini Fendi continues to lead Fendi’s accessories and men’s collections .
The Fendi Spring 2021 show will take place on January 27 at 8:30 a.m. EST (or 2:30 p.m. CET) and will be held at the Palais Brongniart in Paris.
Jones has been at the head of creation for Dior Men since 2018 and has made collections with artists like Daniel Arsham, Kaws and Amoako Boafo, as well as with brands like Stussy and Air Jordan. His collaboration with Air Jordan, the limited edition Air Jordan 1 OG Dior sneaker, resulted in a waiting list of 5 million people.
