Fendi is also reaching out to “hundreds of thousands of individuals that are eager to see the collection” that can’t physically be at the location. In particular, the company is investing in the development of its digital content to speak to a younger customer base, president and CEO of Fendi Pietro Beccari, told WWD.

Fendi Creative Director and designer Karl Lagerfeld has always been at the cutting edge of all things digital.  “Fendi’s digital strategy resolves to continuously raise the profile of the brand, which has always been synonymous with creativity, quality and innovation,” said Fendi President and CEO Pietro Beccari in a statement. “We are enthusiastic to be the first using this technology on the catwalk which will allow us, once again, to be pioneers in our field and projected towards the future.  In addition, we will allow our fans to see our fashion show like no one has ever seen before.”

“No jewelry, no handbags, no gloves, this was all about attitude and silhouette, shape and cuts”, Karl Lagerfeld gives us an inside look at his Chanel Spring 2014 Haute Couture Collection in Paris.  Cara Delevingne opened the Chanel show wearing sporty running shoes with her gorgeous couture gown – a look that is so modern, so cool and so now.

The Chanel Spring 2014 Couture collection was stunning, but it was those sporty, glittery running shoes that everyone was talking about after the show.  As Karl explains, “it gives a new modern attitude about Couture”.

The Chanel running shoes took over 30 hours to make and according to British Vogue will only be sold with the full couture outfit. A spokesperson for Chanel told British Vogue “They are only available as part of the Haute Couture look. However, we always have similar versions in our commercial and ready-to-wear collections,” meaning that you will be able to get your hands on the lust worthy trainers – or very similar – at Chanel stockists worldwide this spring.

Get an exclusive look backstage at Fendi Fall 2013 with designer Karl Lagerfeld and top models Cara Delevingne, Karlie Kloss and Daphne Groeneveld.  “It’s 21st century punk revisited” Karl Lagerfeld said backstage after the stunning show.

Kiki Montrparnasse, the french model and actress was the inspiration for the beauty look makeup artist Peter Philips created.  Peter went for a deep purple on the lip and used Chanel Le Rouge Velvet lipstick in “La Provecante” and Chanel Vendeta on the nails to give the models “a rebelious, chic, sophisticated look”.  Sam McKnight gave all the models a mohawk braid and then added a piece of dyed fox fur on top for a dramatic effect. The models looked so cool and had a savage, almost Mad Max look about them.

This Fendi collection by Karl Lagerfeld was brilliant and it all came perfectly together with the soundtrack by Michel Gaubert featuring the track “Take Me Baby” by Jimi Tenor.  Watch our Fendi Fall 2013 backstage beauty video here now and get an exclusive all-access backstage look with Karl Lagerfeld, Cara Delevingne, Karlie Kloss, Daphne Groeneveld, Etienne Russo, Peter Philips and Sam McKnight.  Discover more at Fendi.Com.
