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.
Emanuel Ungaro, is that you? I barely recognized you! Granted, it has been a while since I’ve seen a bag of theirs worthy of paying some real attention. But the cool, exciting shape of their three-dimensional Triangle clutch is enough to get me to notice the brand once again.
