Fendi is to host a tribute to Karl Lagerfeld during couture week in Paris with an exhibitionshowcasing the designer’s photographs.
Entitled ‘The Glory of Water’, the exhibition will have a particular focus on Lagerfeld’s photographs of Rome’s historical foundations, including the Trevi, which the Italian fashion house has pledged to restore, as part of its four-year Fendi for Foundations plan.
The photography showcase will be housed inside a series of dark domes along the banks of the Seine near the Pont Alexandre III Bridge, close to Fendi’s new Paris store, reports WWD. The free exhibition is expected to run from July 4 to 14, and the fountain photos will be featured in a 120-page cloth-bound book to be published by Steidl.
Fendi's restoration plans are expected finish in 2015 and will be celebrated with a fashion show staged in front of the Trevi fountain in Rome, as part of the fashion house’s 90th anniversary.
