MILAN — Readers of a certain age will know the tune and for those who grew up outside its immediate reign will appreciate it for its timeless melody. Nearly 40 years ago singer-songwriter Rodger Hodgson and English prog rockers Supertramp gave the world “The Logical Song,” which was deftly marshaled by great music brain Michel Gaubert for Fendi Fall / Winter 2018 runway show midday Thursday. This logical choice reflects on Hodgson’s formative years spent in a boarding school. Its endurance as a classic is a testament to the profound life questions it poses. What really matters in life? Karl Lagerfeld and Silvia Venturini Fendi provided answers in the idiom they know best: luxury. This being Fendi, there were no shortage of accessories, fur sweatshirts, chic cowboy boots, and a certain F logo that the legal department over at Fila, Inc. would do well to scrutinize. On the afternoon, five models across the Next global network featured in teh lineup including Rocio Marconi, Hiandra Martinez, Grace Elizabeth, Binx, and Selena Forrest.
