The designer’s easing into the driver’s seat is a “natural evolution,” said the chairman and ceo of Fendi.
The Italian company will donate 2.5 million euros to restore the site, where it will show its couture collection on July 4.
After showing Lagerfeld’s last collection, Fendi aired a portion of Loïc Prigent’s documentary, “Karl Lagerfeld Sketches His Life,” in tribute to the late designer.
Silvia Venturini Fendi was inspired by her mentor for the line.
The partnership coincides with the 10th anniversary of the Peekaboo bag, which Silvia Venturini Fendi and five other designers and artists revisited, and also includes a project called “The Shape of Water,” to be presented at Design Miami.
Prada, Fendi, Versace, Dior and Marc Jacobs are just a few of the brands updating and reissuing bestsellers.
