Following its women’s and men’s fall/winter 2019/2020 fashion shows in Milan, Fendi presented its two latest collections in Shanghai on May 31st.

The first-ever joint fashion show of the Maison was staged at the Powerlong Museum, the 23,000-square-meter modern art museum committed to the promotion of domestic and international contemporary art.

By presenting the two collections, Fendi celebrated Karl Lagerfeld’s heritage, his unparalleled creativity and 54-year collaboration with the Roman Maison – the longest in fashion history.

The men’s fall/winter 2019 collection, presented on January 14th has seen the exclusive collaboration of Karl Lagerfeld as guest artist, chosen by Silvia Venturini Fendi to explicit their lifetime creative relationship. On February 21st the women’s fall/winter 2019 collection is the final collection designed by Karl Lagerfeld for the Maison, representing a lifetime of dedication and creation from 1965 until today.

The collections include fifteen additional never seen before looks – five for men and ten for women – created exclusively for the Shanghai fashion show, which featured a line-up of international models and celebrities, among which Chinese actor and singer Timmy Xu and model You Tianyi.
