THE NEW BOOK: FENDI BY KARL LAGERFELD
“Fendi by Karl Lagerfeld” is the just-launched book that celebrates 50 years of Lagerfeld’s genius at the helm of the Roman luxurygoods house. Published by Steidl, the tome looks back at Lagerfeld’s creative tenure, considered the longest relationship in history between a designer and a fashion brand.
Since he joined in 1965, Lagerfeld has left his indelible mark, paving the road for a trail-blazing new idea of fur highlighted by quirky, funky and unconventional treatments and styling. It was Lagerfeld, in fact, who coined the FF logo by combining the words Fun and Fur. The wooden box also contains a scrapbook with over 200 sketches of looks created by Lagerfeld, a Q&A session and a USB stick with MP4 files that show Lagerfeld sketching his memories live as he speaks.
