Hermès has been in the news this week for reasons other than the handbags to which we generally pay attention, and that’s had me thinking about the full world of uncompromising luxury that the company has created for itself. You can get an Hermès spin on practically anything from desk organizers to animal sculpture, and for the next 12 days, you can get Hermès jewelry and timepieces at Moda Operandi.

Moschino’s quirky items may leave you feeling annoyed or intrigued, depending on your taste, and the wackiest items typically attract the most polarizing opinions.
Just like last season, Fendi Bag Bugs are super-covetable and genuinely hard to find in a way that few things in the accessories world are right now. They sell out so quickly in stores that I’ve never actually seen one in person for sale, and when you search the term “Fendi” on Bergdorf Goodman’s website, it’s likely no coincidence that they’re the first thing that pops up to represent the entire brand.
Over the weekend, the PurseBlog team was scattered around the country – I was in Atlanta, Megs and Vlad were in Ft. Lauderdale, Bea was at Coachella and both Katherine and Shannon were holding down the fort in NYC. Somehow, even in our disparate locations, we all got to enjoy some gloriously sunny, warm weather that only served to remind us that we should probably stock up on some sunglasses for the coming season.
Technically, this may not be a Perfect Pair, but I just couldn’t help myself. I was in the accessories zone. Sometimes all it takes is one accessory to ignite the perfect look, and that’s exactly what sparked this ensemble. For me, it all started with the Joelle Hawkens by Treesje Hunt Satchel, and the rest was history.
We’ve once again reached midweek, and that means it’s time for another round of Want It Wednesday. This week, the members of the PurseBlog team have carefully cataloged our most-wanted accessories, but here’s the catch: we excluded handbags. There are so many other little details that go into a look that we don’t get to talk about all that often around here, so from caps to kaftans, we’re doing it today.
It’s nearly impossible to buy a $700+ Fendi Bag Bug and has been for months, so it was only a matter of time before other designers looking to get a piece of the irreverent-bag-charm pie. Up first is Brit Sophie Hulme, whose attainably priced, cleanly designed leather bags we already adore.
By now, you’re all well-acquainted with Fendi Bag Bugs, Buggies or Monsters (the name seems to vary depending on the retailer, time of day and direction of the wind), and even if you’re not interested in the $700+ handbag charms, you’ve probably noticed that they tend to move pretty quickly for something that lacks legs and is also otherwise inanimate.
We’ve covered the ever-growing Fendi Bag Bug phenomenon a couple times before, but if you ever doubted how much luxury consumers absolutely love the weird, cartoonish, absolutely adorable little accessory monster that Fendi introduced a season ago, consider this: Net-a-Porter got a $1,500 pair of double-monster Fendi Bag Bug Earmuffs in stock over the holiday, and as quick as they showed up, they were completely sold out.
