In an editorial by French-Filipino photographer Allyssa Heuzé, the latest offerings from Fendi Spring 2024 Couture morph bodies into geometric shapes, their silhouettes lined with bugle beads and slivers of silver. Using paillettes in exchange for their signature fur was a deliberate choice by creative director Kim Jones. In doing so, he blends house codes with his own idyllic visions of the future.

“I wanted the collection to feel quite graphic rather than romantic because I was thinking about Fendi and how, under Karl, there was always an element of ‘futurism,’” he said in a preview during his Couture show in January. “I didn’t go back to look at what Karl did, but I like to take the essence of it.”

Here, the pieces from the collection create shapes from shapes, as they are tucked under arms or windswept in motion. As the body moves, the clothes move with it.
