We’re all inundated with options in every aspect of our lives, from fashion choices to the cereal aisle at the grocery store. Bag designers are constantly churning out new pieces for us to choose from, and it takes a special bag to pique interests.
Fendi Handbags and Purses
Bag: Fendi Beaded Snakeskin Mini Peekaboo
Price: $5,300 via Saks
Why It’s the Bag of the Week: Today’s weather in New York City is incredibly grey and damp, so it felt like the right time for something shiny at fun. This little bag would look right at home in vintage photos from Studio 54.
I have been covering a lot of Fendi bags recently, and that’s because I’m crushing on Fendi majorly. The brand continues to release beautiful designs, and so many of them are fast becoming favorites of handbag lovers, including me. There’s the 2Jours, which I now consider a staple, the 3Jours, which is a great update to the 2Jours, and the By The Way, which is the newest of the bunch that I love.
We’ve previously discussed my love for the teeny tiny Fendi Micro Peekaboo Bag, and I’m not the only one experiencing micro bag obsession. Vogue.com named the micro bag the It Bag of 2015, and countless stars have been spotted carrying these tiny bags by themselves or as bag charms.
If you’re thinking about an exceptionally bold coat for Fall 2015, you’re going to love this Fendi collection. If you’re looking for a fabulous new bag, you might also like it, but for the first time in a spectacular several-season accessories run for the brand, it felt like the collection’s focus was elsewhere and we have a moment to catch our collective breath (and save up some money for the Fendi bags we’ve been eyeing).
Last week, when New York City was experiencing one of its coldest days ever, the Fendi Madison store was heating up. The store had its grand opening with a star-studded event, but earlier in the day, Vlad and I had the ultimate pleasure to see the store prior to the official opening.

Why It’s the Bag of the Week: Just when you thought mini bags reached their peak, Fendi decided to micro size already tiny bags and I can’t get enough. Sure the bag doesn’t fit much, but many are using these micro bags as charms or evening bags.
New York Fashion Week commenced today, and that means a bit of mayhem for most fashion websites and writers. The PurseBlog team tackles NYFW in a bit of a different way; our focus is on the bags and accessories going down the runway, as well as the bag trends on display among the show-goers themselves.
Fendi is, without question, one of the brands whose collections we look forward to seeing, season after season, year after year. Under the leadership of Karl Lagerfeld, Fendi has found a way to embrace pop culture and have fun with its designs without compromising the fundamentals of making a beautiful luxury handbag, and that impressive tightrope walk continues straight in to Fendi Pre-Fall 2015.
