Fendi Suede HoboAfter I did a lovely write up on the gorgeous Fendi bags that do exist, I feel totally let-down by this hideous number. I’m going to take a stab at what happened here. Karl Lagerfeld spent this past winter in North Dakota in the mountains and never once had human interaction. Then he proceeded to become so lonely that he made friends with a squirrel, let’s call him Chuckles. So then as Karlito began to experience worse and worse winter woes, he decided he had nothing left to do but slaughter his squirrel friend, Chuckles, and use him for a design on his new Fendi Suede Hobo. Yes, that sounds about right. This bag had me laughing so hard trying to figure out what was going on that I think I burned enough calories to consider this hysteric attack my work out for the day (at least I will tell myself that). What a joke. This bag is being called, “A hip hobo with that must-have logo and a playful squirrel—another Fendi signature”. Oh how I beg to differ. The bag has the tiny zucchino logo pattern splattered all over it on brown suede. Then comes the biggest mess: a dark brown/orange/green suede squirrel appliqué with black topstitching and none other than a gray fox fur tail on the front of the bag. My question is, if you are going to use a squirrel picture, why not just slab the tail on there too? Seeing that squirrels are always road kill, can’t we just send Karl Lagerfeld out to I-95 to scoop some tails up? Here is the astonishing part. This Fendi Suede Hobo is on pre-order for $2,040 at Neiman Marcus. All I have left to say is poor Chuckles. R.I.P.

  • I am… left speechless. Before this, I thought that one of the biggest transgressions of fashion was those horrible cameltoe shoes that Irregular Choice insists aren’t godawful fugly. I… I… Lord. Words escape me. I’m glad that you came up with a scenerio for this monstrosity to exist in, because it’s… conflicting, and… hard to comprehend and… if I think about it anymore it’s going to be like that scene in Scanners with the exploding heads.

    The head of Fendi must be either comatose or constantly drunk in order to let that… thing get through.

    I am in love with this bag. I am a true connoisseur of all things magnificent and squirrel and this is nothing short of being just that. The entire collection is fantastic.

    There are no mountains in North Dakota.

    I read that all of the Squirral pieces were from 1940s Fendi designs, so I’m not sure that Karl Lagerfeld can be entirely to blame!

    I think the velvet Sqirral Spy is gorgeous, though.

    I wish the embroidery on this hobo was more like that (I normally love hobos). Also, the Spy doesn’t resort to using fox fur as a sqirral tail (yuck), either.

    What The heck was Fendi thinking?!?! i love Fendi, but this is just ridiculous! Who would pay for this handbag except for possibly 5-year-olds who just want it because it’s fluffy!! My brain is just twisted in thoughts about this bag right now, I’m so confused!! :???:
