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.
Fendi Handbags and Purses
Bag: Fendi Micro Peekaboo Satchel Bag
Price: $1,550 via Neiman Marcus
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.
When the first version of the Fendi Buggie Peekaboo made its debut last season, it sold out in a matter of hours and wasn’t replenished after it was gone. If you’ve been irritated with yourself for not snagging one ever since, you’re in luck: a Fall 2014 version of the bag is now available!
It’d be difficult to argue that Fendi isn’t absolutely hitting it out of the park right now when it comes to handbags, and now that the brand’s Resort 2015 offerings are starting to trickle into stores, it looks like the brand’s streak shall continue.
When I saw Karlito being carried ever so perfectly down the runway by Cara Delevingne, I knew I had to have him. At first I was told the kitschy bag charm wasn’t intended for product, but with many others like me pining for our very own Karlitos, Fendi decided to make the little guy after all.
In journalism school, my favorite professor once told me that reviewing something you love is much more difficult than reviewing something you hate, which means I’ve got my work cut out for me when it comes to Fendi’s Spring 2015 bags.
