As much as we love Italian fashion house Fendi’s timeless totes and their designs transforming every woman into a modernist, this holiday collection is going to turn the fashion world around. First appeared in the autumn and winter 2013 collection, these super cute monsters are introduced in various items; the iconic baguette and 2jours tote have been converted into a bug with two eyes and a nose.
Slightly diabolical yet absurdly adorable at the same time are the critters from Fendi’s festive offering, the ‘Bag Bugs‘ Holiday collection, which I’ve been a fan of ever since I spotted the first generation of critters from the F/W13 collection.
Key chains embellished with a monster eye, wallets and shoes with facial expressions from fun to surprised and anger, adding a playful touch to your style. In case you wonder, they are made from real leather.
Besides furry bag charms that come with their own names (Furyou, Nutty, Snobius and Wild Jess, no, I’m not kidding), there will also be long wallets, fur-trimmed coated-canvas clutches and of course, those adorable ballerina flats. All come emblazoned with the critters’ eyes. Besides the Baguette and the Peekaboo that will come also decorated with the ‘eyes’, my personal favourite has got to be the Mini 2Jours that will come in Cream or Black (shown above).
It will not be suprising if we tell you that the collection will be pre-sold in Japan, where grown-up toys have always been a trend. You will be comfortable carrying the monster baguette or 2jours in Tokyo, but is it practical to carry in Europe and US? What do you think?
Watch the video. Really cute. And now I just want more. Damn.
From 25 Sept to 8 October, this unique collection will be available in Isetan Shinjuku and from 9 to 22 October in Hanky Umedia. After 1 November, Fendi decided to release them in all boutiques in Japan.
