“We don’t overintellectualize—we just do!” declared Lagerfeld. “And we don’t suffer doing it!”
The show briskly spun out ideas on the trends du jour: thigh-high boots with undulating frills around the tops and the shoe uppers, and ruffled, yoked blouses and dresses. There were wavy stripes set into furs and printed on midi dresses. A short navy cocoon coat was cut into 3-D concentric circles, like ripples on a pond. Somewhere along the wavy line, Silvia Venturini Fendi and Lagerfeld started having fun, too, making costly pastel fox fur coats mimic the playful appearance of girly fake furs. It looked unforced, contemporary—and exactly what girls would want to wear now.
