When flipping through the new January issue of Harper's Bazaar (btw, Julianne Moore is stunning on the cover), I came across the bag I WANT to have for Spring. The Fendi B bag is touted to be THE "It" bag for 2006. I already love the vintage style of the bags (much more my style than the cool Spy bags of last season) and the fact that you can probably put just about anything in it. I also like that its not a huge logo blaster and is just a beautiful bag.
Silvia Venturini Fendi is the designer of the bags, the inspiration of which is the belt buckle in the new Spring 2006 collection done by her and Karl Lagerfeld. (B is probably for buckle, pretty clever I figured that one out.) I love all the different styles they come in. There are 50 in total and there are 4 styles: small and large double buckle bag and the single buckle shoulder bag in 2 styles, one for day and one for evening. You can see more in the Harper's Bazaar article. I'm just about drooling over the double buckle bag in patent leather red, as well as this black and white should bag above.
There are some really ornate bags like this one above that are adorned in lace.
The Fendi B bag inspiration, the belt buckle above.
I really like the clean looks on the runway, like this top and skirt with the belt hung midway down the skirt.
The B bag works well as a great accent to the collection. Clean, classic styles that look modern, especially in black and white. I was never a big fan of Fendi but now I'm really starting to pay more attention.
