MILAN (Reuters)—Geometric designs in tropical hues breezed along Fendi’s catwalk in Milan on Thursday as the Italian fashion house showed off its spring-summer 2018 collection.

The luxury label, part of French luxury goods conglomerate LVMH, showcased clothes by Karl Lagerfeld and Silvia Venturini Fendi in colors redolent of sea, sand and exotic landscapes, and in fabrics as light as gossamer.

The show, on the second day of Milan Fashion Week, was held in Fendi’s Milan headquarters.

“In a world where Italian Futurism meets tropical travel, the collection emerges in a swirl of Caribbean colors and flavors,” a style note said.

First down the catwalk was a geometric outfit with an off-the-shoulder, deep v-neck jacket in ocean blue and red and yellow stripes, matched with a knee-length skirt in the same symmetrical lined motif.
