Last week I know I gave you a bit of a sneak peak at the upcoming FENDI Fall 2017 Collection to be hosted by Saks Fifth Avenue, now, here are all the details (I guess in today’s speak it is all the “deets”!!!!, one needs to be up on the lingo!) You are getting the Save The Date information first!!!!

Here is a bit of background on FENDI and a small look at the Fall 2017 Collection, which in my opinion, is a collection filled with new exciting must have pieces. I know you will agree.


The house of Fendi was launched in 1925  in Via del Plebiscito, Rome. As in most Italian Fashion Houses, the brand has been family generated and the Fendi sisters, Paola, Anna, Franca, Carla & Alda, carried on the tradition of superb craftsmanship. In 1965 Karl Lagerfeld joined the company to became the Creative Director for Fur and also for Women Ready-to-Wear (launched in 1977). Silvia Venturini Fendi, daughter of Anna, joined in 1994 and is the Creative Director for Accessories and Men’s lines. Since 2001, Fendi became a multinational luxury fashion brand and a member of the LVHM group. One can’t be truly fashionable without the signature FENDI handbag!  And after you see the new Fall 2017 Collection you won’t feel fashionable without a piece or two or more (who’s counting!!!) of this fabulous ready-to-wear collection to add to your wardrobe.
