Last week’s Fendi Fall 2016 Couture collection was beyond enchanting. The collection, a full-blown couture fantasy, was inspired by a 1914 book of fairy tales, East of the Sun and West of the Moon. Karl Lagerfeld pulled much of the inspiration directly from the illustrations in the book, including plenty of beautiful details like empire waists, bell sleeves, floral details, wispy dresses and plenty of fur accents. And of course, fairy tale creations require fantasy hair, which the beauty team interpreted as a mixture of Pre-Raphaelite damsel meets Scarlett O’Hara. The models’ hair was parted in the center and curled into soft and fuzzy ringlets, tied half up, and finished off with pastel ribbons. Talk about inspiration for your next Midsummer Night’s Dream party! To see more looks from this surreal summer show, click through to the notes. –– Michelle Rotbart  Click for StyleNotes →
