Ask anyone what they would be wearing to the office tomorrow, and chances are, it's a question that would leave many confused as to what the right answer might be. There probably isn't a valid dress code to work with but Fendi's menswear – under the creative guidance of Silvia Venturini Fendi – isn't taking any chances that men will continue resorting to slacks for the rest of existence (call it optimism). What she is doing for gents today is dishing out a few more answers to those heading to the tailors looking to update their style and proportions for 2022. However, don’t call it a new formal or dandyism 3.0 either – even though Fendi revealed that the Roaring Twenties was an important pillar of this seasonal collection. What it hopes to achieve is simply regular programming with a few unexpected insights from the womenswear wardrobe that men of today are more than happy to borrow from. In fact, look to the flappers for a few gems in this collection be it the wider necklines, cropped suit jackets, cut-outs on knits, flapper hats, detachable collars, just to name a few. What today’s hypebeasts might be adding to cart are the pieces embellished with a new graphic detail, a remix of the Fendi O’Lock jewellery motif designed by Delfina Delettrez being turned into a three-dimensional pattern. They have been patterned on car coats, knits, shearling jackets, shirts, sheer socks, and even details on an array of It bags. There is even a clever detail on the footwear that you probably won’t even think of today: A placement on a shoe strap of a pair of Mary-Janes allows a timepiece to be held comfortably in that position as a decorative element of sorts, a statement on your feelings about time. Don’t worry that Fendi has abandoned classical tailoring all together for those who haven’t yet taken to the gender-neutral pieces. Look closer at the staple suits – boxier in cut – and tuxes are still there for anyone who asks, available in staple black and even ivory. And if you’re thinking that Fendi is stuck in the past, this collection is also the first step for a luxury house making a foray into the metaverse with a collaboration with digital wallet specialist Ledger. It has designed chic housings in polished metal that securely accounts for one’s finances (i.e. cryptocurrency) and assets (e.g. NFTs). Yes, Fendi's even covering for those who are living out their best work life in the digital world.
