Founded within Rome in 1925, the roots of Fendi lie firmly within its commitment to impeccable craftsmanship and quality materials. Beginning as a purveyor of fine fur items and leather goods, the family run company soon developed into a fashion powerhouse. With elegant haute couture adorning runways, and covetable ready-towear collections and bags becoming cultural icons. With it’s Creative department once headed by the beloved Karl Lagerfield, Fendi has consistently been associated with fashion connoisseurs and visionaries. Like the Baguette bag (a vogue It bag), Fendi collections are continually sought after, and here at Timeless Vintage, many exquisite, pre-loved Fendi articles make their way across our work bench.

More About Fendi
Glamour, boundary-breaking, edgy style and Italian heritage all rolled into one. Fendi is soon reaching its centennial year, and with it comes an impressive repertoire of Vogue it-bags, bold fur clothing and accessories emblazoned with that classic FF logo. Founded in Rome in 1926, Fendi was created by Adele and Edoardo Fendi. The family-run business initially began with leather and fur crafted goods, then, as the daughters joined the business, it soon expanded into eyewear, clothing and also fragrance.
Over the years, the brand has passed through the influential hands of Karl Lagerfeld and other influential creatives. And even though the majority of shares in the company were sold to Prada and LVMH in 1999, the Fendi daughters remained influential in the direction of their parent’s creation.
The haute-couture shows of Fendi are particularly show-stopping. Their 90th- anniversary catwalk over the Trevi fountain in Rome even managed to capture the attention of those outside of the fashion sphere, because of the unusual location and elegant ensembles.
While Fendi initially gained influence and attention with its unconventional use of furs and leathers, times are changing. Fendi was the go-to brand for extravagant fur coats and bags as recently as the ’90s, however, some of their recent shows have excluded fur and placed faux fur in the spotlight. As a company that started in the fur trade, its ability to adapt and change with the times has attracted the attention of new young fans.
