“The best” anything is a very particular phrase, and in many cases, is somewhat subjective unless you’re reviewing hard evidence or data that cannot be argued. And when it comes to designer handbags and fashion in general, the best of anything can often be argued, even if you do your best to evaluate it in the most objective way possible, which often means putting personal taste or opinions aside. But even still, the possibility for debate is often what makes it all the more interesting and fun. Today, we’re here to discuss which handbag brand is making the best bags right now, and my answer may surprise you.
Fendi is Making the Best Bags Right Now
While there’s no denying the Bottega buzz of the last few years, of all the high-end designers known for handbags, Fendi‘s current lineup is the one that stands out to me the most. Under the creative direction of Silvia Venturini Fendi, the handbag offerings from Fendi have blossomed in the last two years since Venturini Fendi’s righthand man, Karl Lagerfeld, passed away, leaving Venturini Fendi at the helm of the brand.
Fendi has done an incredible job of merging classic House codes with modernity, offering stunning color palettes, luxe detailing, and a wide variety of shapes. In recent years, each collection has been more stunning and interesting than the next, and while I don’t own a Fendi bag (yet) and I struggle to identify if it fits my aesthetic enough to warrant the addition of a Fendi to my collection, putting my personal tastes aside I have to name Fendi as the best of the best right now.
The brand’s overall aesthetic is perfect for tons of women looking for sophisticated luxury that’s upscale but not overly fussy. The current lineup is broad enough that it does include something for bag lovers of every age, whether it’s for the more classic shopper or the trendsetter. Yet, at the same time, all of the pieces still feel uniquely Fendi, which is another point of many in Fendi’s favor.
