Launched in 1925 by Adele Casagrande as a fur and leather shop in Rome, Fendi has grown to become one of the world’s premier luxury labels. Helmed by the legendary Karl Lagerfeld since 1966, fur and leather accessories are still at the centre of the label’s product repertoire, including the iconic “Baguette”, “Peekaboo”, “Penguin” and “2jours” handbags. The seasonal offering has now expanded to include ready-to-wear, sportswear, skiwear, shoes, fragrances, eyewear and timepieces. The first ready-to-wear vintage Fendi collection was debuted in 1969 under Lagerfeld’s creative lead and secured Fendi’s definite position as an opinion-leading fashion brand. In recent seasons, the label has taken a more playful approach to its bag and accessory design, with whimsical, almost cartoon-like characters and motifs like the Bag Bugs, Fendirumi and Monster Eyes decorating handbags and accessories. These have reached modern classic status through the wide embrace of fashionistas across the globe and are to be considered future vintage Fendi in the making.
Fusing a glamourous, distinctly Italian aesthetic with a modern penchant for eccentric, light-hearted fun, Fendi expertly masters the art of keeping a heritage brand relevant to modern crowds. Lending and mending from decade-spanning style references often as diverse as sportswear and baroque, Lagerfeld’s Fendi takes a novel, youthful and global approach to Italian decadence.
