MILAN (AP) — The latest Fendi collection is both feminine and flip — in short, very chic.

At times reminiscent of 1950s couture, the breezy, colorful show — presented Thursday on the second day of Milan Fashion Week spring-summer 2014 previews — is appropriately dubbed "dreamwear" by the label's designer, Karl Lagerfeld.

See-through chiffon and organza allow the body to take the lead without ever clinging to its contours. The silhouette is boxy rather than curvy, with lots of geometric lines: squares, trapezoids and triangles.

Fresh sherbet and fluorescent colors are worked in monochrome blocks, most evident in the show opener, a sheath dress made up of flaps in progressive shades of pink, from rose to raspberry. The same theme was re-created on the invitation.

The clothes, however, are anything but static. The softness of the fabric gives them a light and loose effect, and allows the wearer to be not only feminine but also comfortable.

There were few pants in the collection, with a pert knee-length sheath under a summer coat the favorite look. By night, the same look is transformed into dreamy evening gowns under dramatic diva coats.

Novelty in the shoe department comes in the double heel, which is made up of two shoe supports with a space in the middle.

Brightly colored bags of all shapes and sizes and wisps of decorative organza in the model's hair complement the upbeat feel of the collection.
