Fendi Spring '09 @ Viceroy Brickell
Fendi celebrated the reopening of their Bal Harbour Shops boutique and the advent of Spring with a fashion show in the clouds yesterday.
Why in the clouds? Well, because the setting was Club 50 at the soon-to-open Viceroy Hotel at the Icon Brickell. It's on the 50th floor of the hotel tower and boasts amazing city views, a pool balcony and a lounge designed by Hollywood glamour girl (and Tides South Beach designer) Kelly Wearstler.
Plenty of socialites were in attendance and for a brief moment everyone seemed to forget grumpy economic woes and instead swooned over the lovely romantic frocks on display. A nice touch on the part of the Fendi folks was a checklist of each outfit and pencil on each chair so you could check off which frilly-yet-sexy look you'd be wearing come April. My trend forecast: puffy short-sleeve dresses, lots of eyelet-cutouts on cocktail dresses, a palette of shiny whites, creams and pinks, and sculpted wedge-heels.
Oh, and bikinis. With fur boleros. It's Miami meets Moscow. Very Russian oligarch.
