Fendi will stage a couture catwalk show in Rome on July 4 in tribute to Karl Lagerfeld, who served as creative director for 54 years until his death in February. Details regarding the timing and location are yet to be confirmed, but the collection will be exhibited in Rome following the presentation, according to the brand.

Unlike Chanel, where Lagerfeld also held the position of creative director for over 30 years, which announced that Virginie Viard, director of the creative studio of the house, would take the reins, no news of his Fendi successor has surfaced.
