Fendi is my go-to brand for high-quality shoes and handbags, and compared to other brands so far, their pieces are mostly reasonably priced, excluding their fur collection that is. I popped in the brand's boutique in Prestige/Grand Avenue to check out their new Pre-Fall selection of accessories. Fendi stayed true to its S/S designs by re-presenting shoes with pyramid-studded-heels, like the ones shown above and below. I liked the combination of cobalt blue and brown of the heels shown above. leopard prints made an appearance too, I didn't go crazy over them. My favorite pair were the black suede pumps with furry detail in the front, I know I'll be getting a lot of "Are these skunks attached to your feet?!" kind of comments, but they looked so elegant and timeless. I'll be adding them to my wishlist for now, I'm not sure if they're genuine or faux fur.
The chain necklace in the last photo was simply divine, and last but not least, I instantly fell in love with Fendi Selleria's selection of handbags, I was shocked by their price tags though, so unlike Fendi I thought to myself. But according to the sales lady, the reason why this line is expensive is because each bag is entirely handmade, the holes punctured with surgical precision, the stitches applied with a special needle and a waxed thread. The entire process is six times longer than a machine-made one.
Also she has informed me that this year marks a new chapter for Fendi Selleria. It presents 8 exclusive new models named after founder Adele Fendi and her five daughters: Franca, Paola, Carla, Alda and Anna plus two iconic shapes, the Baguette and the Peekaboo.
No one does fur quite like Fendi, for Pre Fall 2013, Fendi presents us with black suede pumps with black and white skunk-like fur detail. These designs are for those who love luxury and standing out.
Fendi's Adele bag made out of the softest leather I have ever seen, beautiful!
