Fendi-Strap-You-Bag-Straps

A couple months ago, I reviewed the bags from Fendi’s Resort 2016 lookbook and noted that many of the bags were hanging from thick, wide straps that were unlike those the brand generally includes with its bag. At the end of last week, we learned why: Women’s Wear Daily reports that they’re part of the new Fendi Strap You line, and they’re sold separately.

Fendi-Karlito-Fur-Bag-Charm

The first run of the Fendi Karlito Bag Charm was so successful that I never actually saw one for sale anywhere, either online or in stores. The wait lists were long, and although Megs was able to get on one and get a Karlito of her own, plenty of people who wanted to carry the tiny, furry visage of Karl Lagerfeld were out of luck.

Since micro bags became trendy, Fendi has done the best job at making an itsy-bitsy-teenie-weenie bag that people really want. We’ve covered the Fendi Micro Peekaboo plenty of times, and it’s still a favorite of many. I also did a little experiment to see what fits (rather what doesn’t fit) inside of it.

Fendi By The Way Bag Pink Embellished

Fendi released its now-coveted By The Way Bag last year at this time. Fendi has been at the top of the bag world for a little while now, sticking to a handful of great styles and coming up with a different spin on each one every season.

First, Karl Lagerfeld was a human man. Then he was a bag charm. After that, an iPhone case. Today, Karl Lagerfeld is a handbag. Karl Lagerfeld contains multitudes.

Fendi Petit 2Jours Monster Bag

I consider anytime after 4 pm to be the weekend when it comes to Friday, especially during the summer. Summer means long days, warm sunshine, beaches, and ice cream. It also means great bags, though let’s be honest, every day and season calls for a great bag.

What Fits Fendi Micro Peekaboo

When it comes to what fits, I find it more interesting to see what we can put inside popular smaller bags rather than larger ones. Perhaps most intriguing is the Fendi Micro Peekaboo, a bag that may have been intended as a supplemental bag charm but has turned into a hit stand-alone piece.

Fendi-Cruise-2016-Bags-10

One of the most exciting things about Fendi right now is that I never feel sure I know what the brand’s going to do. I know it will have the general Fendi aesthetic, but beyond that, it’s a brand that seems to find endless new ways to be delightful, and fans eat it up.

Fendi Peekaboo Guide

The Fendi Peekaboo Bag has had a somewhat unusual trajectory. After its debut in 2009, it experienced the normal rise and fall of popularity that almost all bags have. Afterward, though, it did something that few bags every do–it came back on a couple years after its initial peak.

Fendi Karlito Phone Case

Right now Fendi is on top of the world when it comes to its bags and accessories. While some think Karl Lagerfeld likes himself a little too much, the fact remains that when Karl introduced the Fendi Karlito Bag Bug, everyone wanted one.
