Like many world-renowned haute couture houses, Fendi is first and foremost a family story. Its iconic bags are the result of a unique know-how and well mastered codes, which have given birth to models that are recognizable among thousands. Spotlight on the success of the Fendi bagswhich is due to anything but chance.
A perfume of Italy...
The Fendi saga began in Italy in the 20's when Adele and Edoardo Fendi opened their boutique in Rome. Specialists in fur and leather goods, they created handbags in their small workshop that combined elegance, originality and know-how. Customers come from all over Italy to use the services of this "power couple" before their time. When the quality is there, the message spreads quickly: as soon as the 1950ss, the Fendi bags are gaining ground on the international fashion scene, boosted by the arrival in the company of the five daughters of the Fendi couple, determined to turn the little treasure created by their parents into gold. Over the decades, the House of Fendi has carved out its style and defined its signature: with Paola, Anna, Franca, Carla and Alda, the ideas flow, and so do the new collections!
... sublimated by the hand of a German designer
As if the energy deployed by the Fendi girls was not enough, they decided in 1965 to call upon a young German designer whose name may be familiar to you: Karl Lagerfeld. The man who made his mark in the workshops of Pierre Balmain and Chloé accepted the challenge, and a new chapter opened for the Italian House, which would propel it, along with Lagerfeld, to the rank of world star. Under the Lagerfeld era, the Fendi bags are gaining in brightness and glamour. Like the ready-to-wear collections that are launched in the 1970sThe leather goods section highlights one of the materials worked on by the House since its beginnings: the fur. Although somewhat neglected by other haute couture houses, Karl Lagerfeld chose this material for his first collections. He dyed it, combined it, braided it and shaped it to create modern and unusual models. It is this love for fur that inspired the German designer to create the famous double F buckle by Fendifor "Fun Furs", which the afficionados of vintage bags love it.

Italian roots, a touch of German creativity and an American success story: the Fendi luxury bagsIt is the fruit of a successful melting pot! The famous designer remained associated with the House of Fendi until his death. A key player in the innovative collections of the 1980s, he then formed a powerful duo with Silvia Venturini Fendi, the representative of the third generation of the Italian House. Together, they continued to drive Fendi's evolution through the ninetieswhich mark a new turning point for the brand with a distinctive style.
