Last September, Fendi debuted a stunning, eclectic collection of bags for spring 2021, and while many of the silhouettes from the runway were carryover styles, there was one brand new bag that stood out from the rest.
Structured and compact, yet simplistic and sleek, this new saddle bag shape was clutched by models in various neutral colors and caught our eye due to its wearable silhouette and detailed design elements. Today we’re taking another look at this new design just ahead of spring. Introducing the Fendi Moonlight Saddle Bag.
While saddle bags tend to fly a bit under-the-radar in comparison to other handbag shapes, more and more designers have begun to add this shape to their assortments once again. And if Fendi has any say in it, for 2021, the saddle bag is back.
Crafted in Italy from soft calfskin leather this bag encompasses everything that Fendi stands for: impeccable design, storied craftsmanship and a handbag that will remain relevant for years to come. Featuring a classic silhouette with clean lines, it is the details that really make the bag. The leather is hand-stitched and features an iconic FF metal closure as well as a really cool tortoise shell-effect (though the orange color has white detailing) trim that is made out of plexiglass.
Inside the bag is lined in leather, and there is one interior slit pocket. With overall dimensions of 5.5″ L x 8.3″ W x 3.5″ D the interior is on the smaller side, but it can work as a day to night bag for those who don’t carry much. Additionally, carrying a card case will help free up some room! The bag can be worn over the shoulder or crossbody as the shoulder strap is adjustable. The Moonlight is just another classic hit to come out of the House of Fendi.
