“The bond between Karl Lagerfeld and Fendi is fashion’s longest love story.” - Silvia Venturini Fendi

Lagerfeld was hired by the Fendi sisters in 1965. In the five decades that followed, the designer transformed the Maison into a playground of creativity.

In honor of the exhibition, a selection of Lagerfeld's designs has been pulled from the Fendi archive and put on display in the windows of the Fendi 57th Street Boutique in New York City.


The exhibition celebrates Lagerfeld’s vision and his unique working method and includes several of his original sketches from the Fendi archive.

Fendi is pleased to support The Costume Institute’s Spring 2023 exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, dedicated to Karl Lagerfeld's work.
