The men’s versions of Fashion Week never get nearly as much attention as the women’s do, but there are still exciting details to find within the menswear collections, even if bags are your main concern. After yesterday’s Fendi Men’s Fall 2014 show, several images of a very particular bag popped up: the Fendi Men’s Peekaboo, this one (captured by Tamu McPherson of All The Pretty Birds on Instagram) with the ever-popular monster facade that’s gained Fendi so much accessories traction in the past six months.
With several seasons of success for the Fendi 2Jours Tote, it’s only natural that we’re now seeing brand new bag shapes based on the best-selling original. The smaller Demi-Jour shoulder bag popped up first, and now for those of you who carry everything you own on a daily basis comes the Fendi 3Jours Bag (Or the Trois-Jours, depending on who you ask.)
Like the Demi-Jour, this bag brings over the metal bar trim that serves as the most distinctive design detail of the 2Jours, but it does it in a way that’s modified to serve the structure of the big, roomy tote.
We’ve covered the ever-growing Fendi Bag Bug phenomenon a couple times before, but if you ever doubted how much luxury consumers absolutely love the weird, cartoonish, absolutely adorable little accessory monster that Fendi introduced a season ago, consider this: Net-a-Porter got a $1,500 pair of double-monster Fendi Bag Bug Earmuffs in stock over the holiday, and as quick as they showed up, they were completely sold out.
One of the breakout bags of 2013 is the Fendi 2Jours Tote, a style that is simply stunning and classic in every way. While Fendi offers a wide range of a sizes, colors and materials for the 2Jours, you can’t underestimate the allure of perfect black bag, and the Fendi 2Jours in black comes close to perfection.
I opine about Fendi a lot, but right now, its handbag business is the most interesting on the luxury mass-market. Six months ago, I’d have told you that there’s no way I’d ever feel even the slightest temptation to hang a $700 furry monster keychain from every handbag I won, and here we are today.
Fendi hit big with its 2Jours totes, and the brand has put a playful spin on the seriously popular design with a line of monster-inspired bags and accessories. By now you’ve seen the bag monsters floating around the Internet (and maybe even on the bags of your friends), but Fendi has released an entire line of monstrous items.
The costume department behind The Carrie Diaries is unarguably one of the best on TV, but it does occasionally take liberties with its 1980s timeline. Here’s AnnaSophia Robb, filming exterior shots for The show in NYC, carrying yet another eye-popping Fendi Baguette.
It’s been several months since I wrote about the Fendi Fur Monster Bag Charm, and I’m still sort of obsessed with it. I never counted myself as the kind of person who would buy an expensive, non-functional doohickey to adorn my already expensive, probably only semi-functional handbag, and yet, I’d gladly trot around with one of those little fuzzy rascals on my bag.
