Is this a retro bag from the 80’s? Sure looks like it but guess what? It’s the latest from the House of Fendi. The 80’s are back again which is ridiculous considering that the 80’s hasn’t been gone long enough for it to keep coming back. The Spring runways showed a bunch of strappy strips of tight Alaia-esque dresses reminescent of Milla Jovovich’s The Fifth Element character (which I thought was like oh my god, like totally awesome). Yes, I spent the 80’s at the same mall as Moon Zappa but I’ve moved on. I am not one of those who hangs on to my childhood by being stuck in a time warp (acid washed, high waisted ass flattening jeans? no thanks.) Interesting bag but it’s not even a current interpretation of the 80’s, it’s too literal.
What do you think?
