Why It’s the Bag of the Week: I never thought of hugability as a criterion for bag-buying until just now.
Fendi has had something of an incredible run over the past few years. The brand’s bags have been popular since the days of the Baguette, but lately the Italian design house has shown a fantastic knack for anticipating trends and sparking new ones.
It’s somewhat rare for a brand not to have e-commerce in this day and age, but the luxury fashion industry still has quite a few holdouts. That is no longer the case for Fendi; just this week, Fendi.com opened up its online shop, including a large variety of the brand’s most coveted bags.
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.
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.
