Winter has not yet arrived and resort bags are hitting the market. One major way to know we are looking at a resort bag is when it is made out of straw. Straw is quintessentially resort/spring material and I have yet to own a straw bag or find a straw bag worth purchasing. The case remains true with the Fendi Twins Straw Tote. The design stems from the popular Fendi Vintage Leather Twins Tote, but takes a fresh look with the straw body. Let’s get into the details.


Fendi Twins Straw Tote

If we took out the exorbitant price tag, a whopping $2,560, we can sort of start off with a clean slate. We have a simple tote design with leather trim and a straw body. Straw is great for Resort and Spring, it automatically makes me think of the beach, but I simply do not care to own a straw bag. The rectangular pattern created with the straw does give a nice effect though. Then we have the logo details at the bottom of each top handle. So we are doing ok.

Then there is an adjustable shoulder strap, which is always a nice addition. Then again, the large dimensions (16″W X 11½”H X 6″D) are not ideal to be hanging this bag from your body. Overall I am feeling uninspired. And while I tried to take out the price tag when reviewing this bag, I simply could not. Because really, who wants to pay over $2,500 for a straw tote? The name may be Fendi but it is nothing other than an expensive seasonal bag that nearly everyone I know will pass on. Buy through Saks for $2,560.

    Sorry to say, but this bag looks like it was a craft project using straw place mats to make a tote bag.

    OK I would pay $200 for this bag. I’m sorry I’m a big fan of Fendi and all BUT I like my straw handbag by Michael K better then this one: (

    What?!?! $2,560 and straw? That’s just crazy!

  • scorpio

    Thats insane, I would think no more than 1,000$ for this bag, & even thats pushing it.

    I think this is the most beautiful straw bag I have ever seen and I can’t imagine ever buying it at that price.

    This simply is not a nice looking bag!

    I think that it’s cool and different, but that does not justify the price bag. It’s seasonal and most probably wouldn’t use it next season. Unless, of course, they give it to some celebrity to tote around. Then they may get some sales.

    Keep up the nice work! Look forward to reading more from you in the future. I think it will be also nice if you add “send to email” tool so people can forward the articles to their friends easily.
