MILAN (AFP) - Fendi hit Milan fashion week on Saturday with a "big bang explosion," showing off a sleek summer/spring 2013 collection strong on furs and leathers layered and inset over one another to create a 3-D effect.

"It's an explosion of a traditional fashion house, a big bang explosion," the brand said, as models took to the runway in tunics and dresses decorated with patterns which erupted across the surface in pastels and earthy colours.

There were classic looks, such as ivory shirts worn with slim brown leather trousers - jazzed up with panels inset in the inside leg. But the majority of the outfits pushed the boundaries with bold blocks of colours and angular cuts.

Dresses were two-toned, with cotton or leather fronts and fur backs.
