Fendi has been pioneering on tech as well as fashion fronts. The fashion house made history with their first-ever fashion show to be captured by drone cameras at the 2014 Milan Fashion Week. The much awaited Fendi Fall/Winter 2014-15 fashion show did grab attention for fashionable reasons too. As the rest of the world waited along with the attendees to get the best view of the Fendi show in Milan, Cara Delevingne sashayed down the runway with a Karl Lagerfeld doll! While the robotic cameras buzzed overhead, the furry bag bugs generated abundant buzz on the catwalk.
Sporting a white pony tail, white collar and a black tie just like the Creative director of Fendi, this latest furry figurine stole the show. Karl’s favorite model Cara Delevingne opened the show, dressed in a black oversized fur hood. According to ABC, Silvia Venturini Fendi said that it all started with the Fendi bag bugs: festive little creatures that hang from Fendi’s handbags. The latest Karl-edition of these furry bug bags is designed in three kinds of fur. Designed to embellish the handbag with some fun element, the furry Karl doll debuted by dangling in between Cara’s white glove clad thumb and index finger.
Sporting a look from Fendi’s fall collection, the 21 year old British model also posed for a snap with Lagerfeld backstage and posted this message on Instagram: “With the one and only @karllagerfeld and his mini mi #doubletrouble.”
The creative genius has given a new role to fur with the latest Bag Bugs charms. Until now fur was commonly limited to give shape to rugs, coats, dresses and bags. It is also reported that Fendi is the only fashion house to have its own Fur Atelier since 1925.
