Fendi is showing no signs of slowing down when it comes to their flirty, often smile-inducing plays on critters and creatures, and now they’ve made the move from monsters to abstracted incarnations of actual animals. This might be too cutesy, but come on, it is pretty darn cute. Moreover, it’s kind of irresistible. Who doesn’t love penguins? Especially a penguin on a bag that functions like a dream.
A geometric motif of everyone’s favorite aquatic bird gives way to a flap-front shoulder bag (that you can also carry as a top-handle style) with structure and compartments to spare. A black calf-skin body keeps the overall look from feeling too over the top. Besides, this breed of novelty design is the norm these days, far less outrageous than it once was, so don’t be shy. Carry this on a whim – even to work if it strikes your fancy. Fendi Penguin bag available for pre-order at Bergdorf Goodman for $2,050 (expect shipping by December 22nd).
Pair with: Go for shoes that are classic with a bit of quirk, like Pierre Hardy’s white leather pumps featuring a glossy rectangular heel. On NET-A-PORTER for $795.
