The Fendi adventure began on Via del Plebiscito, a busy street whose location in the heart of Rome made it a main thoroughfare used by the transalpine aristocracy. Adele and Edoardo Fendi opened a small and medium leather goods shop and set up what was then a secret fur workshop.
Success came quickly and was confirmed when their five daughters, Paola, Anna, Franca, Carla and Alda, decided to get involved in the family business bringing new energy and ideas. Nicknamed the five fingers of the hand, it was they who, in 1965, invited a young German designer to join the House. His name: Karl Lagerfeld!
After revolutionizing how to wear fur by fully reinterpreting it, transforming it into a fashionable, soft, light item of clothing, he launched the House’s ready-to-wear collection in 1977. He still provides artistic direction alongside Silvia Venturini Fendi, who represents the third generation of the family and is in charge of accessories, menswear and kidswear. Forever associated with the Fendi image, the legendary Baguette bag and the timeless Peekaboo have helped to shape the House’s influence.
While Fendi has always been a big part of Caesar Donna’s history, it’s back after a break, in Caesar Donna’s brandportfolio. Starting from this fall and winter 2017 collection, the most wanted fashionable items are available in store. The Fendi collection in store will contain a wide selection of clothing, shoes, bags and small accessories.
