When it comes to bags marketed as Men’s, a lot has changed in the last decade, and particularly the last five years or so. Gone are the days of black and brown briefcases or olive green messenger bags. In the 2020s, there are more options for men than ever before. Of course, that’s not to say that men can’t wear whatever they please and that extends to women too. That being said, there’s no better time to be a luxury handbag lover. With designers blurring the lines and leaving things up for the wearer’s interpretation, why not “borrow from the boys” as they say? Fendi’s newest collection of bags is begging us to do so, and today we’re taking a look at brand new Spring 2022 bags, straight off the Fendi runway.
This season, Fendi’s creative director Silvia Venturini Fendi was inspired by her perspective on watching the world from above at the Fendi headquarters which are located inside the Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana. Glimpses of the Mediterranean Sea, the seven hills of Rome, and the Apennine mountains inspired a dreamlike palette of pastel lemon and lime, icy blue, lilac, and mint, contrasted against mineral shades of chalk, graphite and slate.
As for the accessories, there was a huge assortment of styles with the accessories collection meant to evoke feelings of a playful escape from the mundane realities of the everyday. The iconic Baguette is reimagined as a jewelry pouch, shrunken down and appearing attached to a fine waist chain. The classic shape also appears in a really cool transparent plexiglas clutch as well as a more useable messenger. Another icon, the classic Peekaboo appeared throughout as well, in stunning shades with a favorite being a lovely lilac color. Other standouts include a Peekaboo in matte nylon finished with burnished edges and Fendi’s new utility buckle, which appears on a series of backpacks and crossbody bags. View all the bags below.
