MILAN — When Fendi announced on Instagram that house mascots Fendirumi would be attending its Fall / Winter 2016 runway show, it was all but certain that accessories would play a significant role in the collection. So it came to pass that sunglasses, handbags, dangling bits of fur, etc figured throughout a collection based on the theme of waves. Making waves on the runway, then were five models from across the Next network including Selena ForrestOdette PavlovaLeila Goldkuhl, Lineisy Montero, and Binx. Doubtful if Fendirumi  at life-size scale will ever be available for retail sales, but these girls at least provided a glimpse of what is to come.
