Fendi’s best asset, as Kim Jones knows, is the Fendi women themselves, mother and daughter Silvia Venturini and Delfina Delettrez. Backstage today Jones explained that the genesis of his new fall collection was seeing Delfina in the Rome office wearing a blouse of Silvia’s from a 1986 Fendi collection by Karl Lagerfeld, when he was in his Memphis phase. “I took it off her back and put it on the research rail,” he said. Jones recolored the print and collapsed the more obviously ’80s proportions of that show’s tailoring into separates, some in menswear fabrics, others in denim.

Jones has landed at Fendi at an opportune time. The Baguette bag, made famous by Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw but beloved by fashion insiders years before its first appearance on that influential show, turns 25 this year—gasp! An archivist by nature, Jones is bound to go big for the anniversary at precisely the moment when the fashion cycle (and another Carrie Bradshaw-fronting TV show) is sparking interest in the It bag among a new generation. The timing really couldn’t be better. And in Delfina and her younger sister Leonetta, Jones has ideal muses. “What they wear is what Silvia wore when she was younger, and she’s very cool and they’re very cool; seeing how it’s generational is very inspiring. They’re obsessed by clothes and details, having those women around you when you’re working is a real joy.”
