The first thing that came to mind when I saw the Fendi Fall 2009 collection was the "Derelicte" collection from Zoolander :P It's not quite that post-apocalyptic or deconstructed, but it was plenty gloomy. Don't designers realize that, in a depression (let's face it, "recession" is a euphemism), we don't want our clothes to be depressing as well? I was not keen on the leather leggings — they serve no real function and they looked dorky. But, I did love the shoes and boots.
