A Fendi Bag Unboxing

A Fendi Bag Unboxing | A review of the latest addition to my handbag collection | Fashion | Blonde Sartorial | A Millennial Fashion & Lifestyle Blog

Upon recently taking inventory of my wardrobe to see what I need for this coming autumn, I noticed the only brown handbag I owned was a Louis Vuitton Speedy I find too big for everyday use and I thought it was time to change that. Variety is the spice of life, after all.

I was in no particular rush. The Louis Vuitton monogram backpack of my dreams is permanently unavailable and a quick browse of the Selfridges website didn’t produce any standout choices. However, a trip to my local Flannels (which is dangerously located just a 20-minute car journey from where I live and a five-minute walk from my favourite vegan café in the world) changed everything when I saw the most perfect bag sat on the bottom shelf of a fixture at the back of the store.

Introducing the Fendi Double F Mini Shoulder Bag, a playful alternative to the iconic Baguette and the latest addition to my handbag collection. Crafted from tonal brown calf leather, the bag is embossed with the label’s signature double F motif and treated with a transparent film that gives the body a unique ‘glazed’ appearance. The foldover top flap is customised with a black Fendi stamp and magnetic closure and the interior is composed of imitation suede with an internal slip pocket. It also features a sliding-chain shoulder strap in a vintage-gold finish.

Considering this is a ‘mini bag’ (a larger size is available), it’s surprisingly roomy, comfortably fitting an iPhone X, purse, makeup and keys. And, the sliding strap allows it to be worn either as a shoulder bag or across the body, adding to its versatility. In a dream world, I’d be able to shorten the chain further for a handheld option, but this wasn’t a big enough issue to prevent me from purchasing it.

I knew the second I saw it that this was the handbag I was looking for. Despite being bought primarily as a softer option to wear with summer dresses, the dark colouring makes it a bag that can be used throughout all seasons. And, the Lagerfeld designed double F motif is a classic that will undoubtedly stand the test of time. I won’t lie. Designer price tags can be pretty huge. But, when you think about how the piece will transcend through time, it can be considered an investment. I think this bag is a great one!

    The bag sits nicely on my body, and I always use the shoulder strap. The cool thing is you can change up the bag with one of the many Fendi straps available, though any removable strap would work. The strap the bag comes with isn’t too thin, so it sits nicely on your shoulder. Whether carried by the top handle or strap, the bag is still easy to get in and out of, and because of the perfect sizing, I haven’t found myself having to dig around long to find what I’m looking for.

      I completely agree! Thanks for the tip about using other Fendi straps with the bag for a different vibe. I’ll definitely look into that!
