The mantra at the Fendi Fall 2013 collection? Fur — in every shade — on everything, and we mean everything. Even the shoes, bags, sunglasses, and tough-girl mohawks were adorned with it. Karl Lagerfeld zeroed in on fur (a pointed nod to the house's heritage), sleek lines, sexy slits, and enough neon and tactile intrigue to convince us of this collection's '80s-punk-meets-tribal leanings. But don't be fooled, this Nu-rave-esque lineup is also impeccably tailored, and the clothes, while bold in effect, are crafted with the utmost ladylike sensibility. Take, for example, the car coats styled with knee-length pencil skirts, or the cool cropped jackets paired with chic high-neck sheaths. There's an undeniable edge to the Fendi Fall '13 girl, but with a little (or a lot) of color and a clean silhouette, she's not as unapproachable as meets the eye.
