PHOTOS COURTESY OF FENDI
Looking for a fun casual number for weekends and the like? From natural straw to raffia fringes, woven leather and Fendi Astrology embroidered fabric, there’s plenty to love as far as the inimitable F-clasp bag is concerned.
It made its debut with Kim Jones’ first Fall-Winter collection for the brand, featuring an oversized asymmetric clasp. The letter F holds a special meaning at Fendi, with keywords like ‘family’ and ‘fun’ integral to the Italian fashion house. Family members at the helm included five Fendi daughters and now, third-generation Silvia Venturini Fendi. And fun, of course, is embedded in the brand’s DNA.
Naturally, the Fendi First bag is a perfect encapsulation of these concepts. From the get-go, the up-and-coming icon soon appeared on the arms and shoulders (via the accompanying strap) of celebrities. Examples include Chiara Ferragni, Jennifer Lopez and Priyanka Chopra, just to name a few.
Prices start from SGD4290 for the one in natural straw and SGD4650 for the one in white interlaced fabric. For something equally unique, the eye-catching white and blue woven leather one (SGD5690) will fill the bill.
But if prints are your thing, go for the Fendi Astrology embroidered bags in canvas and denim retailing at SGD6100 each. Great for casual Fridays and weekends, these fabulous five come in the small size. Measuring 26 cm by 18 cm, they come together with a removable leather shoulder strap.
