How Fendi Got Their Groove Back: Block It Like Fendi

Fendi Chameleon, Baguette, Caludia, 2Jours, Rush Bags

Colorblocking is here to stay, at least for the next season or two. If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em! Like all-over studs and heavy hardware, blocks of color started out as a big, bold trend and now they are a wardrobe mainstay. It has been a very, very long time since I found myself aching for a Fendi bag (as in, way before colorblocking was the sudden rage!). Suddenly, Karl and his collages are pulling me back to the house.

There’s a casual verve to these geometric creations, but there’s more than meets the eye. The Rush clutch ($1,490 at Neiman Marcus) is a slim package that’s heavy on texture (stingray, snake, and calfskin, to name a few!), and the Claudia shoulder bag ($2,890 at Neiman Marcus) projects a twisted ladylike attitude.

From the relatively sleek 2Jours tote ($2,214 on Farfetch) to the more-muted Chameleon crossbody ($1,880 at Neiman Marcus) to the iconic Baguette ($2,290 at Saks Fifth Avenue), coated in sequins: Fendi has really taken shape. Rather than haphazardly throwing around colors and shapes, hoping for the best, each is a deceptively methodical collage of the Fendi logo. Now the question is…which one?
