Fendi RTW Fall 2014: A Show of Seasonal Fur and Flying Robots

Fendi RTW Fall 2014: A Show of Seasonal Fur and Flying Robots

Today’s Fendi Fall 2014 collection during Milan Fashion Week brought fur back in full force, adding the material to dresses, shawls, jackets, shirts and bags in a palette of demure winter colors. Black, brown, navy and muted green were prevalent on the runway, clearly dictating the season of the collection. The show was a display of excess: rich tones, furs and luxurious fabrics made models seem like jet-setting heiresses in Karl Lagerfeld’s ultra-fashionable world.

Boxy shapes and fuller cuts give the collection a modern, sporty silhouette without taking away from the beauty of the pieces. Slim cuts and belted waists on some garments allow the feminine figure to be shown, but for the most part, the line consists of looser fitting garments and heavily layered looks that take away from the body's shape, turning the focus towards the clothes—which is great if you’re still in the process of losing those holiday pounds, not so great if you’ve been working your butt off and got into your skinny jeans again.

Since fall and winter are the best times to bring out those ultra-luxurious pieces like fur, leather and velvet, we love that this collection is making the most of the season. Fur mufflers, heavy coats, deep colors and long skirts are pieces we wouldn’t likely make space for year-round, but we’d easily replace everything in our wardrobe when that first chill hits. Especially with pieces as heavy as these—just looking at the runway makes us feel cozy and warm.

Most trends in this collection are very passive—revealing themselves in a hint of shape or touch of color rather than screaming to be noticed. Flowers on lapels or sneakers peeking out from beneath heavy skirts show that pieces can be styled up or down—rocked with every on-trend accessory you own or left to their own simplicity. Personally we’d wear it either way, and love that everything is easy enough to work into our own personal style.

But the coolest thing about this collection wasn’t on the runway at all—it was floating several feet above it in the form of a flying camera drone. Fendi is generally more synonymous with fur than technology, but this runway show was the first to have flying live-cam robots flittering above the catwalk. Both the main camera and drone camera videos are available online at Fendi.com and even though the quality isn’t top notch, we have to admit it’s still pretty cool.


  • The Pentagon in Virginia is planning to introduce artificial intelligence to a future generation of fighter jets
  • The plan is to use AI as co-pilots to humans and to help with sensory data and possibly with landings on aircraft carriers
  • Such technology may be used in the US Navy's upcoming F/A-XX jet
  • And it may also feature in the US Air Force's F-X fighter jet
  • Both are being designed to enter operation by 2030 at the earliest

Who will be flying the military aircraft of tomorrow? According to the Pentagon, it may partially fall in the hands of artificial intelligence (AI).

Reports say that both the US Navy and Air Force are planning next-generation fighters that don't have just a human pilot.

Future fighter jets may have an AI co-pilot on board that can help with sensory data in addition to autonomously landing the plane on an aircraft carrier.

The Pentagon in Virginia is planning to introduce artificial intelligence to a future generation of fighter jets. The plan it to use AI as co-pilots to humans and possibly to help landing on an aircraft carrier. Such technology may be used in the US Navy's upcoming F/A-XX jet (artist's concept shown)

According to the US Naval Institute (USNI), artificial intelligence will feature prominently on the successors to the Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornet and the Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor.

WILL FUTURE AIRCRAFT BE MADE FROM HUMAN-LIKE 'SKIN'?

A human-like ‘skin’ for aircraft - allowing them to detect any damage and ‘feel’ the world around them - is being developed by British experts.

Engineers at BAE Systems’ Advanced Technology Centre are investigating a ‘smart skin’ concept which could be embedded with tens of thousands of micro-sensors.

When applied to an aircraft, it will enable it to sense wind speed, temperature, physical strain and movement, far more accurately than current sensor technology allows.

The revolutionary ‘smart skin’ concept will enable aircraft to continually monitor their health, reporting back on potential problems before they become significant.

The US Navy is working on the F/A-XX and the Air Force on the F-X, with both designed to replace their predecessors by 2030 at the earliest.
