Fendi Ivory Sculpted Wool Short Sleeve Dress, 2008


Fendi is no stranger to eclectic styles. While it is common for the brand to play with concepts of concealing and revealing the body, Fendi also showcases a sense of restraint and simplicity which are key principles observed by Karl Lagerfeld who served as creative director for decades.

This circa 2008 dress showcases a minimalist aesthetic with a futuristic edge. Done in a soft, felted ivory wool, the dress begins with a wide standing collar. Narrow shoulders move into dolman-esque sleeves set into an interesting front racer seam.

Exposed seams are a simple element that create an impactful design detail as the front seams create a curved side front border with hidden pockets while the back highlights the princess lines. With a basic, slightly-nipped waist and knee length hem, this dress is both conservative and edgy offering a great way to add a dash of modest excitement to a buttoned-up wardrobe.
