For Fendi’s pre-fall 2016 collection, Karl Lagerfeld and Silvia Venturini Fendi presented a haute sleepwear-inspired lineup. The collection is rife with color-blocking techniques and oversized silhouettes. The bathrobe-style coats, vests in bobcat, mink, sable, and fox were worn over trousers and elevated platform slippers or trekking shoes decorated with strips of shearling. The bedroom mood continued from beginning to end. There were rich-looking shawl-collar pant suits rendered in a graphic diamond print, and a standout velvet jumpsuit that was evocative of a smoking suit. The fur belts tied around the waist gave the distinctive nightgown and bathrobe feel to the oversized coats and jackets, and a few evening dresses took their cue from nightdresses.
