Book Review: Fendi Roma

Book Review: Fendi Roma – Founded in 1925 by Edoardo and Adele Fendi with the creation of workshops devoted to leather goods and fur, Fendi is first and foremost a Roman luxury house. Inspired by the architecture, colors, and textures of Rome, Fendi designs are a true product of the city they represent. It is also a family company of strong women—Silvia Venturini Fendi, the creative director for accessories and menswear, belongs to the third generation in the business. And, while remaining faithful to these roots, Fendi is not afraid to look outward: Since 1965, Karl Lagerfeld, now creative director for fur and ready-to-wear, has brought his unique, forward-looking perspective to the brand. With breathtaking photographs of Fendi designs and their inspirations, Fendi Roma celebrates ninety years of family, artistry, and craftsmanship. Get Social!

Lagerfeld’s pronouncements on fashion, women, art, politics, love, and life high and low – are famously oracular, seized upon by fashionistas, acolytes and sages around the world. Karl Lagerfeld‘s quick wit and silver tongue are as notorious as Chanel‘s quilted handbag. This book is a cornucopia of his Karlisms: cultivated, unpredictable, provocative, sometimes shocking, but always impossible to ignore. Karl Lagerfeld is a modern master of couture. While simultaneously running Chanel, Fendi, and his own eponymous fashion house, he has consistently re-invented trends on the catwalk and in the street for half a century. His wise, surprising statements pop up like offbeat news flashes and are regularly seized upon by fashionistas, acolytes, and sages the world over. Here, in his own deadpan words, are his exacting opinions on everything-from fashion, style, women, and Chanel to fame, life, and books….
