Fendi HandbagNothing against my grandma or any of you ladies or men for that matter who enjoy crocheting. I am sure you enjoy it, lots. I, on the other hand, am not as crafty minded. I’ve been known to make a kick ass scrap book and some other originally gifts (right Vlad?? 😉 ) but the whole sewing thing never came to me. My mom always wanted to teach me, but it just isn’t going to happen. Now here is the million dollar question of the day. If I were to call up my mom or gram’s right now and tell them to check out this bag, would they reply “Oh I could do that!” I actually think so. This is why I have to say this bag is quite a bad deal, for its hefty $930 asking price. What bag am I talking about you may ask? Why, none other than the new fall line Fendi Crocheted Chef Bag. But of course. I’m not sure what is happening over in the design center at Fendi, but it sure is not making me a fall 2005 Fendi fan.

Now this Fendi Chef Bag is super crafty, I will give it that much. I can just see it now. Mr. Karl Lagerfeld sitting in that cabin of his killing off Chuckles and then crocheting by his wacky fire. I’m not sure what the man is doing, but this bag is so not worth the price. Here is the deal: the bag is pretty cute looking. I think the crocheted wool (choose green or pink) with the ruffled trim and bow is very chic fall fashion. Then the bag shows off a little bit of golden hardware, a brown leather shoulder strap, and a golden logo charm. Mr. Karl must be overvaluing the price of his golden logo charm, because unless it’s the purest of purely mined gold, this bags price makes absolutely no sense. With no other outlandishly extravagant features I am still baffled at the $930 price tag for this little old lady number from Neiman Marcus.

Sometimes I swear designers put out the most hideous clothing/accessories just to see how dumb/desperate some people are to have anything, no matter how ugly, that has a designer label on it.
I honestly think this bag is a joke. It’s got to be.

I believe the bag is knitted in a garter stitch not crocheted. I could not believe the price. Today drove to my Neiman Marcus to take a closer look. Not available at my store but they said they would be willing to send it from LA. Wow! They keep all Fendi’s under glass.

Went to Studio City for the wool and instructions but owner said the yarn is not available and that the yarn available is now $60 since the article in LA Magazine. Does anyone have the instructions? Would appreciate a reply and if someone has the instructions how much yarn is needed. Thanks.

Im a huge fan of Fendi, But when I saw this bag, plus price tag, i thought it was way to over priced for what it is.
