Fendi is an Italian fashion design house that was founded by Adele Casagrande in Rome in 1925. Today the brand is overseen by Silvia Venturini Fendi and designed by Karl Lagerfeld. It is known for being luxurious and glamorous, down to the tiny details.
Some of the frames in their lines (one for men and one for women) certainly fit the bill in an obvious way. Oversized acetate frames are decorated with dozens of tiny Swarovski crystals and tortoiseshell frames have gold metal detailing at the top, while other pairs are made of injected nylon and decorated with enamel trim – and those are just some of their non-prescription sunglasses!
Fendi’s prescription eyewear for both men and women is a little more sedate, but still as flashy and glamorous. Some are fully rimmed, while others only have partial rims. The latter are made from a mix of metal and acetate, while the former consist of acetate. The colors range from blue to black, some with the trademark Fendi F pattern on the outside of the earpieces so that the world knows who designed your eyeglasses.
