Italian luxury brand Fendi has switched-up its longtime home on Rodeo Drive, swapping out a small, one-story boutique for a larger, two-story flagship at the corner of Wilshire Blvd. and Rodeo. Women's ready-to-wear, shoes, furs and accessories are showcased upstairs in the new boutique, and the men's collection – which hadn't been part of the previous space at all – occupies the ground floor. The two are linked by a travertine staircase. Interior details include a colorful wall hanging of patchworked fur pieces and framed photographs of Roman fountains taken by Karl Lagerfeld (the house's longtime creative director for women's ready-to-wear and fur). Fendi Beverly Hills, 201 N. Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills.
