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. Now we have the Sophie Hulme Fuzzy Pink Bag Charms, which are somewhat more restrained (and considerably less expensive) than their super-popular Fendi counterparts.
The most obvious difference between these bag monsters and the originals, of course, is that these are much, much smaller. Fendi’s fuzzy charms are so large that it’d be difficult to use one as a keychain; they’re very much meant to live on the outside of a bag at all times. These little buggies, on the other hand, are proportional to what you’d expect for a keychain, and they feature a chain long enough that your new friend will dangle below your house keys, in full view. If you like Fendi’s idea but want to spend a lot less money or would prefer a keychain, these are the way to go.
