Fendi is a Italian high fashion house best known for its "baguette" handbags. It was launched in 1925 as a fur and leather shop in Rome, but today is a multinational luxury goods brand owned by LVMH. Karl Lagerfeld is the creative director.
Fendi's internationally renowned line of fur helps to differentiate the brand from its competitors as one of the few designers with a full range of fur offerings. Naomi Campbell was fired from her position as a People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals spokesperson in 1997 for wearing fur at a Fendi fashion show.
Fendi launched its first perfume, Fendi for Women, in 1985. The line has been expanded to Theorema Uomo and Fendi Uomo (for men) and Celebration, Asja and Fantasia (for women). Can cost up to 100 dollars.
Fendi's eyewear line currently includes prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses in addition to non-prescription sunglasses.
Fendi currently licenses out their name for their watches, which feature Swiss movements.
Fendi licensed their name and logo to Cross Pens in 1989 but by 2000 this deal appeared to have lapsed.
