MILAN — The second day in the Italian fashion capital began with an altogether different sort of showers, sun showers! Clearly the gods of high fashion were looking down favorably on how mere mortals got on with the rain on the first day and mercifully spared them a second. Which is just as well considering the Romans were at the northern frontier midday for the Fendi Spring / Summer 2016 runway show. The luxury brand headquartered at the once imperial seat made most of the sunny afternoon to regale all those gathered with Karl Lagerfeld’s latest ready-to-wear collection for spring. Pitching up for the effort were no fewer than seven models at Next including Odette P, Lineisy Montero, Julia Fleming, Vera Van Erp, Liza O, Olivia Jansing, and Fendi regular Binx.
