Perhaps some of the black dye from my hair appointment yesterday has seeped into my brain, but I find the Fendi Seleria Zucca Horse Tote almost…charming. It has chutzpah, and I respect that, even if I don’t necessarily want to spend money on it or carry it around town.

Some leather-goods brands tend to be so self-serious about their origins in equestrianism and saddlery, and it seems as though Fendi is deliberately poking fun at that kind of slightly stodgy traditionalism and humorlessness. And a giant leather horse head on a logo bag, from a company which largely has no such origins? That’s hilarious, if only to people who spend far more time thinking about bags than is healthy.

I’m not sure how many points any of you are willing to award to a brand for having a witty design sensibility, but I think Fendi deserves at least a few here. Not only is the bag irreverent, but it’s fairly well executed – the leather looks to be the typically high-quality material that graces most of the brand’s bags, and I’ve found zucca to be far more durable than you might guess. For the size of the bag, I think that the price is pretty fair – it just depends on how willing you are to wear your sense of humor on your arm. I’m betting most people will pass, and I probably will too. But I’m still highly amused. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $595.

    As weird as it is I like it. If I were on Project Runway Heidi would really have a problem with my taste.

    Well im not a fan of zucca but if it was a horse head on plain canvas and i was a horsey girl then i’d buy it to carry my whip and jodpurs in. :)

    Not a fan. It looks like one of those cheap canvas bags that you can purchase for about $10.
