Miniature versions of already-popular full-size bags have been a strong trend for more than a couple of seasons in a row at this point, so the arrival of the Fendi 2Jours Elite Small Shopper Tote was likely a foregone conclusion as soon as the bag made its runway debut over a year ago. The original design’s sleek construction and modern-luxe aesthetic were an instant hit and still sell like hotcakes, and now there’s a new version for our shopping pleasure.
Personally, this version excites me a lot. I love the 2Jours, but its large size and short shoulder strap situation make it less than ideal for how I like to carry my bags – at least a long shoulder strap, ideally cross-body. At ten inches wide and five inches deep, though, this bag is still plenty big enough to hold everything I need for a day at the office. (Thankfully, my days of laptop-schlepping are over.) The regular 2Jours is 14 inches wide, to give you an idea of scale.
This size should lend itself well to the intense embellishment and texture that Fendi is known for adding to its bags, but it also looks pretty great in regular ol’ leather. Buy through Nordstrom for $1,750.
