Who better fit to tend to the ones and twos at Manhattan Magazine’s celebration of the new Fan di Fendi Pour Homme Acqua fragrance than Mark Ronson? For one, he fronted the campaign for Fendi’s first eau de cologne just last summer, but more importantly, he’s living proof that the Italian fashion house cuts a good suit.
It’s been another hard day in the office for the Styleite team thanks to Milan Fashion Week. What a chore, browsing through photos upon photos of chiseled dudes sporting tans, tattoos and new-season Prada.
If you’re like us and are awake at this hour, then you’re just in luck to catch the livestream of the Fendi fall 2013 runway show! What does Karl Lagerfeld have up his sleeves for the upcoming season? Guess you’ll just have to watch to find out.
Fendi Baguettes are the new Grecian urns. Ok, not quite, but they do now share the distinct honor of being the subjects of some very reverential poetry.
It’s been a while since meat broke into the fashion scene with Lady Gaga’s raw-some meat dress, and here’s its long-awaited comeback. Linus Morales directed meat from all cuts of life — along with a lone slice of bread — in his Fabulous Food series featured on TrendLand. Sausages posed to mimic the Chanel logo, a Gucci-branded T-Bone, Fendi fishsticks, and a Louis Vuitton bread slice, this food is nothing short of fabulous.
Fendi‘s much-hyped South Korean fashion show is set to go down Thursday, and the Karl Lagerfeld-helmed fashion house is no doubt relieved that they’ll be allowed to show fur on the Seoul runway.
The good people at Fendi spent months preparing for what sounds like one doozy of a fashion show in Seoul, Korea, only to be told they’d have to leave out one of its major elements: fur.
Because rich people’s kids need clothes, too, Fendi recently debuted its children’s collection here in the United States. The Italian luxury label designed by Silvia Venturini Fendi celebrated the launch of the collection last night with a runway show featuring 6- to 8-year-old boys and girls from what we’re guessing are pretty well-off families. And we guess that because nearly every one of the children’s mothers were there, sparkling behind loads and loads of luxury products. The Birkins alone could have paid for our first two years of college.
We’re not quite sure why, but this picture of the Jacobs by Marc Jacobs for Marc by Marc Jacobs in collaboration with Marc Jacobs for Marc by Marc Jacobs (say that five times fast) tote has been making the rounds this week. Marc‘s cheeky nod to vapid logo-loving is one of the reasons we adore him, but other labels (including his own Louis Vuitton) are a bit more earnest in their excessive branding.
We already knew that the breadth and depth of Karl Lagerfeld‘s work in the fashion industry was pretty wide and pretty deep. But Elle‘s fashion blog discovered today that when the Kaiser isn’t designing for Chanel and Fendi, shooting short films for Hogan or designing small islands, he’s doing a lot of random work that he doesn’t get credit for.
Fendi may be known for their leather goods, modern takes on classic staples, and the fact that their fur once got Naomi Campbell canned from her PETA spokesperson role, but that doen’t mean they’re above designing something as banal as an iPhone 4 carrying case. Luxury cases for techy products are no new frontier — Louis Vuitton’s leather version cost almost as much as the iPad itself — but we’re not sure we’ve ever seen a fashion house design one that looks so, well, cheap.
We’d heard these things called Silly Bandz were all the rage, but until we stumbled upon US Magazine’s blurb on the growing craze of Silly Bandz among celebrities like alpha mom Sarah Jessica Parker — who wore a lime green one in the shape of who-knows-what — we had no idea how big they really were. And we’re all familiar with the domino effect that stems from a little bit of subliminal trend endorsements by celebrity moms.
The suit-loving lawyers at Fendi and parent company LVMH have another hefty payday on the way. According to WWD, Fendi has just settled a lawsuit against the former Filene’s Basement for $2.5 million after claiming the off-market retailer illegally sold counterfeit products.
We just came across this Do It Yourself Baguette bag from Fendi’s Spring 2010 collection; a nice follow up from 2008′s Paint-Your-Own Baguette Tote. Finally all the needlepoint expertise we learned at summer camp will come in handy!
LVMH, the holding company that owns some of the industry’s most important luxury brands including Marc Jacobs, Fendi, Celine, among others, has decided to conquer the hotel business with the creation of LVMH Hotel Management.
On Monday, we reported that luxury powerhouse LVMH had gone to war against Google, hoping to get the search engine to stop selling branded trademarks as ad keywords. Today, WWD reports that the case has been heard at the European Union’s highest court and according to the ruling, Google has not violated any trademark laws by selling keywords like Fendi or Louis Vuitton.
