This year, Fendi takes us to a time travel adventure as the set of their Fall 2019 Haute Couture Show was held in Temple of Venus and Roma on Palatine Hill overlooking the great Colosseum of Rome. Venturini Fendi takes inspiration from the late designer Karl Lagerfeld, and it shows in this collection. Fendi showed 54 looks for the 54 years Lagerfeld was at the helm as Creative Director.
Reversible coats, Deco patterns and evening gowns are as usual spectacular in sheer black ball gowns and chiffon embroidered Juliet dresses. Expect lots of hand held purses with lots of accessories, marble designs and fur many of which can definitely match with either your evening or day look.

The Chloe Aby Day Bag speaks for itself: every woman’s must-have for daily routine as it can be carried in hand, shoulder or cross body through its adjustable and removable long leather strap.
