PARIS — "I think this is really cool," Fendi chief executive Michael Burke said Thursday, pushing open the back door of Fendi's new Avenue Montaigne flagship here that gives way to the enormous covered courtyard and auditorium of parent LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton. "I don't think any other store in the world has this."
Tonight, barren trees will decorate the space, reprising the set from Fendi's show last week in Milan and representing the first time designer Karl Lagerfeld will present his fur and fashion designs in the French capital. A party will follow.
