Maybe it’s all the competition out there. Maybe it’s because we’re tired of seeing ourselves – and our accessories – coming and going. Or maybe we’re just coming around to the long-lived fact that nice things feel even nicer when they’ve been customized.
Here’s a bug you’ll actually want to catch this fall: Fendi’s Bag Bug collection marries that zany sense of whimsy only Karl can bring to the table with kooky shapes and eye-popping color. The line started with the Fendi Buggies, those furry little monsters you may or may not be seeing dangling off It-bags this season. While the likelihood of the Buggies catching on with full steam is questionable, the Bag Bug Petit 2Jour bag is a shoo-in.
Have you ever fallen in love with a bag, only to see it slip through your fingers? First you decided that it was too expensive and that you needed time to decide if you really must have it, then the next thing you know, it’s sold out!
