Before delving into the details of Fendi's FW16 collection, allow me to set the scene. The luxury house's Milan headquarters had been transformed into a furry boudoir - with a shaggy spiral staircase leading down to an equally shaggy runway. Before the show began, a telephone rang over the PA, and was followed by a soundtrack of Barry White love jams.

The love shack vibes were really cemented when the first model strode down the runway (/carpet) clad in an extremely luxurious (and one assumes, extremely expensive) dressing gown. Shaggy overcoats, silky trousers and furry slippers (and furry running sneakers) soon followed, with bucketloads - and bucket hats - of shearling, houndstooth trousers and comically hairy accessories just adding to the playful nostalgia.

We've seen a lot of shaggy fabrics at the FW16 shows, and Fendi went in hard on the trend. Chenille was used to detail many pieces, and bright yellow coat linings gave the impression that the luxury house had expanded its repertoire of exotic hides to include skin from Sesame Street's Big Bird.
