Although the luxury brand and its signature dueling ‘F’ pattern have not only withstood the test of time, but have also secured the Fashion House itself with an air of notoriety. Eye-catching, fabulous furs, and bright colors are just a few of the features that have been garnering attention this season both on and off of the runway.
During the Fall 2014 season Fendi introduced a new theme that carried on throughout the Ready-To-Wear collection, and began to stock the shelves of luxury department stores internationally. The various Fendi monster accessories come in a variety of colors and sizes, from the elite “2 Jours” bag (which is absolutely 2 die for), to backpacks, totes wallets and even shoes all embellished with monster details.
As if the cartoon-style carryalls weren’t enough, Fendi also introduced “bag bugs” to adorn on top of each of their mischievous little leather goods. These kooky designs have completely taken the fashion world by storm, allowing those who are fortunate enough to get their hands one of Fendi’s newest creations, looking três Tokyo-chic wherever he or she may decide to roam.
Fashionistas hailing from cities across the globe have been photographed with Bag Bugs on their Birkins. Most notably, Celebrity Teen-Icons Kendall and Kylie Jenner, of which hasshown off her personal favorite Bag Bugs via Instagram, even nicknaming one “Fluff-Fluff”. Supermodel GiGi Hagid, Olivia Palmero, Solange Knowles, and numerous other trendsetters have all been photographed wearing monster accessories from the collection. The June issue of Nylon Magazine even pays a small homage to the creative work going on at Fendi, while showcasing several fun pieces from the upcoming collection.
Fendi also created a “Karlito” Bag Bug modeled after Fashion-Mogul-Designer-Extraordinaire, Karl Lagerfield himself! Other High-Fashion options that mirror the style of the oh-so coveted Bag Bugs have recently been produced by other top designers such as Michael Kors, Alexander McQueen, and Phillip Lim.
The excitement over these new essentials has created an unprecedented demand worldwide, as most everything featuring a monster accent from the collection is sold out. That being said, luxury resale sites such as lyst, stylebop, and net-a-porter, do have a few pieces from the collection, however due to popular demand, each item is currently being sold at a premium.
For those of you who aren’t too keen on the frightening price tags associated with these creepy-cool accessories, some more affordable options that still have the same furry-feel are available.
