4. Fendi Transparent Zucca Tote with Pouch.

Looking just like the mesh mask layer that protects beehive workers, this tote bag is made with nylon and trimmed with Zucca canvas. You know what I would do with this tote; I’d sew right into the bag with yarn like I did as a child.

3. Fendi Crossword Patent Clutch.

Look at me, look at me, I’m a Fendi clutch. For some reason even though handbag designer recognition is high, handbag designers think we all need their name all over our bags.

2. Fendi Crossword Grande Net Bag.

Boring. We have all seen seatbelt bags, or the like, but to see a design house like Fendi use large net panels to weave like a basket is overly dull.

1. Fendi Gologo Large Transparent Bag.

Three R’s come to mind; repugnant, repulsive, revolting. This bag looks as if it were made with a cheap shower curtain that you would find at in an in-state college dorm shower.

Too much, too fast is the theme of our ski vacation. If you could all see me now. Picture this: A fashionable gal wearing my boyfriends shirt because it is all that will fit overly my arm somewhat comfortably with my right arm (my writing arm of course) snuggled close to my body in a sling and wrist brace waiting to be checked by my ortho.

This is precisely what happens when a designer has absolutely no idea what to do next. Salvatore Ferragamo, I love your shoes, have had crushes on a few of your bags, but this bag is down right nasty looking.

Sometimes you have to wonder. What in the name of the good Lord was Eve thinking? First of all, she took her cues from a serpent. They slither and hiss and are NOT to be trusted!

Perforated handbags made a big hit with the Louis Vuitton Perforated Handbag Line and now the genius and sometimes off-his-rocker designer, Jean Paul Gaultier, is introducing a line of perforated handbags for Spring/Summer 2007. With a touch of poker, the Jean Paul Gaultier Perforated Handbags will not hide any unmentionables and looks oddly done, bordering on the line of cheaply done, from afar.

Off the wall is part of Alexander McQueen’s middle name. This can also lead to extreme and complete odd ball handbag creations. I may have it out for shearling handbags, but come on, the Alexander McQueen Shearling East West Handbag has an angel staring at me.

Fendi has undoubtedly made some bags that are extreme hits, and undoubtedly made some bags that show lack of ingenuity or design. I must admit on a pair of heels, placing a buckle is cute and looks great under jeans.
