Fendi 2Jours Tote

For those of us who cover it, Fashion Week (Err, month. It’s definitely a month.) is like a giant K-hole of glitter and fur and champagne cocktails and middle-of-the-night coverage deadlines that never relents, not even on weekends. (Especially not on weekends.) When it’s done, it’s often hard to remember anything in particular that you saw, but a bag or two generally sticks in my mind long enough that I’m still salivating over it and anticipating its existence when Fall 2012 deliveries start arriving in stores. That was the case with the Fendi 2Jours Bag, and when Sarah Jessica Parker was caught carrying it not long ago, all of my hopes were confirmed – it’s just as chic in real life as it was on the runway in Milan.

As I’ve suspected from the beginning, Fendi’s intentions with this bag go far beyond just normal leather totes. Because of the simple structure (note the in-or-out gussets a la Celine) and modern hardware, the bag lends itself to all kinds of variations – texture, color, pattern. The bag is a perfect blank canvas, and Fendi’s design team appears to be hard at work filling it up in as many ways as they can imagine. Check out our favorites after the jump.

    Love them all of them. They are not simple bags (they are simple but perfect in their simplicity)  they are art works. I must say that in s not so far past, Fendi was a litttle popular in a sense of  ”vulgar” (common, gross. We in Milan never wore it, it was for “the rich vulgar roman ladies”), but now is flying up and up and up in the sky reaching heights with the best bag-designers (Celine, Chloé, Prada, Givenchy etc.). My compliments

    I am more interested in the basic leather version, maybe the “honey” color.  I just cannot decide….I know where to purchase it but I have not yet.  I have a Gucci “brocade stirrup hobo” that may be something I want more….just cannot decide and I can only have one of the them.

      Hey, why not get get this instead? Is is much more interesting than the Gucci! Plus, it may just be the next It Bag…and prices will go up if it is!

    Lawrence gave me a choice btwn this bag (black with JB monogram) or trip to Jamaica for friend’s wedding in December. I chose the trip. Am I a fool? Don’t answer that.
