Bug Out with Fendi’s Quirky Holiday 2013 Collection!

  • posted December 1st, 2013
  • Fashion

While most holiday fashion and beauty capsule collections this year are offering up shades of sage and cranberry, shearling lining, and more sparkle than anyone can safely handle, Fendi has gone in a very, very different direction. The high-fashion design house is taking a decidedly Halloween-inspired approach to the holidays with their Buggies capsule collection – a series of fuzzy bag charms, and monster-inspired handbags that will not only have all eyes on you – they’ll stare back, too! From quirky keychains to sleek black totes with hidden peekaboo eyes and even furry creature baguette bags, these graphic accessories are almost like having your own personal wardrobe body guard! Our only regret is that even the most affordable Buggies retail at a staggering $580 (not counting the tiny keychains which will set you back a hefty $270 apiece). But hey – maybe if we’re lucky, we’ll find one of these cute little critters peeking out at us from a clearance pile at Saks one day.

These Python Printed Bags Pack a Punch

It’s hard to avoid animal print these days, whether in the form of fuzzy calf-hair leopard print flats, or literal animal faces emblazoned on the front of woven sweaters. But if you’re not the type to rock loud patterns or whimsically ironic knitwear, don’t fret – you can still get your fill of the printed trend without sacrificing your taste level. Python bags are easy to love because they’re still a neutral, in a way – the print coordinates with nearly everything, plus the pattern itself is slinky and sexy without calling too much attention to itself. If you’re not afraid of some bold contrast, this Lanvin Python Shoulder Bag sports a beautifully pronounced print, with a rocker-chic chain strap to boot, while this Jane August “Murray” Python Handbag boasts a more tame, muted take on the print. And if you like to play ‘Peekaboo’ with your prints, the Fendi Peekaboo Bag from Barneys looks demure on the outside, but opens to reveal a sexy python interior – it also comes in leopard!

Foiled Lids & Fabulous Bouffants From Fendi Spring/Summer 2012!

  • posted September 30th, 2011

In designing the beauty looks for Fendi’s Spring/Summer 2012 showcase, makeup and hair genius Peter Philips decided that the chic housewives-inspired runway looks would be best complemented with some serious high-fashion statement and shine. After all, these housewives certainly aren’t doing any housework! But you don’t need a multi-million dollar home and a designer closet to cop wearable versions of the looks straight from the runway — in fact, the foiled shadow look is definitely in for the season to come, though you might choose to keep your own eyebrows uncovered! If you have no spare gold leaves handy (ha, ha), fake the foiled look with a pigment intensifier like DuWop’s to give a typical gold shimmer dust like Bare Minerals True Gold a much more color-rich, high-shine finish! Line eyes with an extra-inky black liner that won’t be upstaged by the shiny gold; I like Clinique Eye Defining Liquid Liner. As for hair, whether you want to mimic the runway’s updated bouffant or just want your own interpreted extra-voluminous up-do, spray hair with Frederic Fekkai Coiff Bouffant Lifting and Texturizing Spray, then lift with a teasing brush like Spornette Big Wonder Teasing Brush for some serious lift that won’t droop!

Fendi Peekaboo Cognac Leather Bag SALE Reminds Me of Hermes Saddle Leather

My all time favorite bag has got to be this Fendi peekaboo cognac natural saddle leather bag that I saw retail for $2,900 plus tax at Barneys New York the other day. It smells and feels like the same leather as the Hermes Birkin saddle leather but is about $7,000 less than this bag and looks almost like a mini birkin. I also love the cross body feature of this bag. That means you can be hands free while using this bag wherever you go so you can carry other things like shopping bags, coffee, or flowers. This bag is also on a 2 month wait list at some stores and you will have to pay tax to a total of $3,200 total. Why not get it on sale for $2,599? So gorgeous. I want it now.

Fendi Superstar Bauletto Boasts Designer Elegance Without All The Bells and Whistles

  • posted February 1st, 2011

As any modern shopping addict knows, a handbag obsession is a pretty pricey hobby. After all, a serious purse collector wants the very best to help build out their collection, but realistically, what’s the point of shelling out a month’s rent for a designer handbag if you won’t get much use out of it? I realized, after recently scoping out my own humble collection of handbags, that I don’t have many practical pieces. I suppose I’ve figured that if I’m going to splurge on something fancy, I needed to go all out and choose something really special, complete with sequins, hardware, metallic details — you name it. However, unless you plan on keeping your designer bags holed up in your own personal shrine (I certainly don’t), it’s important to have at least one high-quality designer bag that you can actually use without clashing with any given outfit (or blinding someone). That’s why I totally have my eye on the Fendi Superstar Bauletto — it’s unmistakably luxurious, but the neutral color palette, simple and classic shape, and elegant leather trim makes it the perfect goes-with-anything handbag that you don’t have to plan your entire outfit around. It’s the perfect size to fit under your arm, but still large enough to fit everything you need to run your daily errands in style. Posh and practical? Sounds like a handbag collector’s must-have to me!

Cheryl Shops Fall Shopping Guide: Pegged Pants

Unlike trends, silhouettes move at a much slower pace. This is a good thing, because a major shift in silhouette involves a dramatic reinvention of one’s wardrobe. A silhouette is the overall shape and proportion of one’s look; it influences everything you wear and how you put it all together. Silhouettes tend to change every 7 or 8 years, although most people tend to associate them with decades: think the fitted tops and bootcut pants of the ’90s, the heavily padded shoulders of the ’80s, the long, lean look of the ’70s, the boxy mod look of the ’60s, the hourglass New Look of the ’50s, and so on. In 2010, we’re coming to the end of the era of the skinny jean. Yes, there are women who’ve been steadfastly wearing their boot-cut jeans all along, but think about it–when it comes to pants, it’s been mostly skinny jeans and leggings, right? (A side note: Dresses have become incredibly popular during this time period as well, something that may or may not have to do with the dominance of skinny pants and the fact that many women don’t feel comfortable wearing them.) I sense that a change is coming, a shift in what we wear and how we wear it. Yes, dresses are great, but I’d really like to see women embrace pants once again. I think the next big thing is flared pants, a retro high-waisted fit that’s completely in line with the ’70s revival that dominated spring runways from New York to Paris. Going from skinny to flare is a big change, however, and I have a feeling flares aren’t going to catch on for several months. For now, however, I think pegged pants are a great option for right now. The shape gives one last nod to the ’80s, a decade (I hope) we’re leaving behind, and makes the perfect transition from skinny to flare. After all, there’s nothing like living in the now.

$$$
Almost all of the pants I’m featuring in this trend are cropped, which seems a bit silly for fall and winter, but they’re actually the perfect length for wearing with booties–the cropped inseam lets you show off your latest footwear finds. These Thom Browne pleated pants even feature striped grosgrain trim at the cuffs, the better to draw attention downward. These obviously have a strong menswear inspiration but, like most of Browne’s clothes, subvert tradition.

A more feminine interpretation, these Fendi pants have a more streamlined fit and a dramatic asymmetrical ruffle detail at the hip.

Alexander Wang’s “Clueless meets Wall Street” fall collection got mixed reviews (and, yes, all together, it was at times a bit much), but there were some completely sexy pieces in it, like these pegged pants. I absolutely love the side cutouts–you can tuck in a shirt by day and let your skin show at night–and the leather cuff at the hem is totally tough. Yes, in my eyes, Alexander Wang can do no wrong.

Milan Fashion Week: Gucci, Prada and Fendi

Gucci

From military to tribal to rock ‘n roll, the Gucci Spring 2011 designs covered all the bases. The color volume was turned way up, with vivid blues the color of the Amalfi coast, and burnt orange like Moroccan sand dunes at sunset. Creative Director Frida Giannini listed ’70s photos by Guy Bourdin, Chris von Wangenheim, and David Bailey as inspiration for the punch of bright colors, while Marrakesh was also noted, hence the tassels, braiding, and Northern-Africa feel of various pieces.  Both the woman who loves the exotic and the one who wants style without gimmicks can look to Gucci.

Fendi

For the Fendi Spring 2011 collection, the collaboration between Karl Lagerfeldand Silvia Venturini Fendi produced an uncluttered, lofty array of clothing, perfect for those hot summer days when keeping cool is key. The classic Fendistructured stripe detail was ever present, particularly on the belts and bags, and were an ideal contrast to the relaxed motif, in the form of flowing drawstring waist dresses and blouses and fluid calf-length skirts. It was easy to imagine frolicking in the house’s light creations under a scorching spring sun through a field of daisies.

Prada

For Prada, spring 2011 was all about uniformity, from the basic smock of hospital scrubs to the bold stripes of an inmate’s garb. And bold she succeeded in being; the oranges, greens, blues, and violets seemed plugged in and larger than life, made in part by the wide sleeves and slightly billowing arms of the jackets and dresses. Josephine Baker and her banana skirt flamboyance topped off the collection’s colorful brilliance, which just goes to show that a bold block of color doesn’t need upgrading.
