I’m so utterly pleased to see the bags from the Fendi Spring 2010 catwalk starting to land in stores. This bag collection is my favorite from Fendi in…well, almost forever. It had a bohemian grace and ease to it that is difficult to capture, and they did a fine job.

The Fendi Wood-Frame Leather Clutch is a great example of the slightly boho vibe that the collection had, and unlike the emerging clog trend (no no no, I cannot live in a world where clogs are ok), the wooden touches on this leather handbag are totally acceptable. They might even be pretty.

I was slightly more unsure of the wood when the collection first walked than I am now. It was featured on several different styles of bags, and I didn’t know if its use on these clutches would fly once I got a better look at them. Well, as it turns out, my concerns were completely unfounded.

The walnut handles are totally chic and feel really modern, despite their retro roots. The juxtaposition of such a hard material with the soft black leather brings out the best in both, and the small gold studs that dot the confluence of the leather and wood are like little cherries on top. Buy through Saks for $1450.

    Clogs are unacceptable. I won’t believe in them.

  • speaking of…

    hmm…i like..your right though..its been a while since FENDI made a bag we can go gaga over..

    OMG! Someone must have been reading my mind. I was thinking about a bag similar to this that I had as a teenager in the 80s just yesterday. I was wishing that I had kept it. Too bad Fendi feels the need to charge so much for this one.

    I have a pair of black suede clogs that I love and have had for about two years. Keeps my feet warm on cold days like this.

    Can you change the cover? looks like a fancy Bermuda bag from the 80’s!

  • Sue

    It’s kind of cute, but I fear that with any encouragement this ’80s thing will never end!!

  • Jane

    I absolutely adore this clutch. When I first saw this clutch I thought of my Dad’s doctor’s bag. I have always wanted to steal it from him and use for my personal bag. But now I don’t have to because Fendi created this to die for clutch. The walnut handles, leather body, and edgy gold studs. ARE YOU KIDDING I AM IN LOVE. Too bad the price is way out of my range. :(

    Ugh, I’m really not a fan of this bag. It’s boring and blah. I wouldn’t give it a second look if I saw it in a boutique.
