It was a mixed bag at the Fendi Autumn / Winter 2012-13 show yesterday. Karl Lagerfeld threw the rule book out as he mixed a variety of colours, fabrics and textures throughout the presentation of the ready-to-wear collection.

His program notes cited the "infinite, innovative interplay of textures, colours and fabrics," and that it was. Think furs, crocodile skins, PVC, cashmere and layers of colours such as green, purple and navy. Throughout the show there was a continual stingray theme which appeared on everything from blouses to tights, handbags and shoes. Further to this, Lagerfeld unveiled pleats, peplums, capes, tailored coats, peaked shouldered jackets and more. It was a mish mash but somehow it all seemed to work.
