Made by MENDOAbout the books
Who will recognize a great book better than a bookstore? A bookstore run by graphic designers. Here’s why: at MENDO we get market feedback seven days a week, we are blessed to be surrounded by a bunch of talented, inspiring people – photographers, writers and publishers – and after being a bookstore for more than 15 years, we can easily say we know what book aficionados are looking for. Don’t you agree that initiating, creating and realizing jaw-dropping books now, only comes natural?
A MENDO publication is a well-designed book with visually stunning creative content, browsed by people to be amazed and inspired. The subject-matter is one of our pre-defined curated categories, fashion, photography, interior, sport, lifestyle, food and traveling. In general, a MENDO book is a piece of furniture in itself.
Fendi by Karl Lagerfeld traces Lagerfeld’s unparalleled career at the luxury Roman fashion house, where he has revolutionized the craft of fur (both technically and artistically).
He also introduced the successful ready-to-wear and accessory lines that have transformed Fendi into a global fashion brand. Through the decades we see how Lagerfeld incorporates eclectic influences-from Eskimo designs and medieval armor to kimonos and the world of informatics-into his own progressive vision.
Fendi by Karl Lagerfeld illustrates the evolution of contemporary fashion over the past half-century
The book includes a sketch pad of 130 of Lagerfeld’s fashion drawings, a pad of his logo designs for the house, along with booklets of exclusive interviews with the designer, a poster and a USB key containing his short films–all packaged in a custom-made wooden case modeled on the box of oil pastels which invariably graces Lagerfeld’s working desk.
