The Tribute to Carla Fendi

Carla Fendi was one of five sisters who ran Fendi and transformed it into a luxury goods empire until it sold to LVMH in 1999. She remained honorary president until her death early this morning. In 2012, Architectural Digest published the photos of her eclectic flat situated in a palazzo in the heart of Rome. In honor of Carla Fendi, let’s revisit the place that was once her beautiful home. You can read more about it here. Also, another great article about a night on the town with the legendary lady entitled “Carla Fendi’s Rome” can be found here.

    There is nothing like classic Italian style and her home epitomises it. I have been a fan of Fendi for decades and was able to acquire a few handbags and a leather jacket back in the day when the Italian Lira was week against the US dollar. Those days are over but I’m still a fan. Thanks for sharing this post. I plan to read the link articles as well. I’d love to see how she did Rome!

      The days of the week Lira are sure over! I remember buying one of my first Fendi bags in Rome as a souvenir at would now be considered a steal of a price compared to today’s prices. I’m glad you enjoyed the post and hopefully enjoyed the link articles. Italian style really is in a class all its own.
