Fendi‘s Bag Bugs are more than just a handbag accessory–they started not just a trend, but an entire category of luxury products. The Bag Bug craze inspired other designers to create their own bag charms, some of which we looked at in great detail earlier this week.
As someone who both loves Fendi bags and dislikes ruffles, Karl Lagerfeld and Silvia Venturini Fendi have me in a bit of a bind for Fall 2016. Ruffles and waves were the entire basis of the collection, from the furs down to the sold-separately bag straps, almost as if a scientist had tipped Karl off a little early on the gravitational waves discovery of a couple weeks ago.
By now, you know what to expect from Fendi: beautiful bags in familiar shapes, reinvented in colors, embellishments and finishes that require a closer look, plus added accessories that will inspire a thousand copycats. That’s exactly what’s on deck for Fendi Pre-Fall 2016; the brand released the upcoming collection’s lookbook over the weekend, and we pulled out all the bags.
