Karl Lagerfield designed for House of Fendi for 54 years. Hired as a relative unknown, he was the force behind the brand for decades. After his death, Fendi released this statement:
"The bond between Karl Lagerfeld and Fendi is fashion's longest love story, one that will continue to touch our lives for years to come," read a statement from the house in the days after his passing.
- The brand looked in house and hired grand daughter Silvia Fendi to lead the brand to new heights. Silva Fendi has injected new energy and joy into the venerable house and creating new interest in updated bags and RTW.
- It looks like Fendi is the hot bag of 2019. Especiallly the gender neutral baguette bag.
