Linda Evangelista

Fendi SS14























The Sam McKnight-styled graphic bobs of the Fendi by Karl Lagerfeld Spring/Summer 2014 Show were based on boyish pictures of Linda Evangelista in the ’80s, and on Japanese bob haircuts, and also referenced The Beatles’ hairstyles, in the ’60s.

Other Linda Evangelista-inspired item and makeup : House of Holland Autumn/Winter 2007-2008 (the 12th look of this show, which started with a slideshow of photographs of supermodels, including Linda Evangelista, was a minidress with a slogan which referenced Linda Evangelista), Rag & Bone Spring/Summer 2011 (for the makeup of this show, Gucci Westman took inspiration from the early « raw, sexy and beautiful » pictures of Linda Evangelista by Peter Lindbergh).

The Karl Lagerfeld-shot Fendi Autumn/Winter 2013-2014 advertising campaign, starring Cara Delevingne, pays homage to Rome.

Some Rome-inspired collections : Alberta Ferretti Spring/Summer 2008 (this collection was based on the Greco-Roman imagery), Damir Doma Spring/Summer 2012 Menswear (this show, titled « Into Rooms of Light », was influenced by the luxuriant decay of William Klein’s « Rome »), Vera Wang Spring/Summer 2008 (this collection paid tribute to ancient Rome).

Moreover, Fendi has created the « Fendi for Fountains » fund to restore Rome’s Trevi fountain, then 4 other Roman fountains (from 2013 until 2017).
