Fendi Unzipped Satchel

Do you ever get the feeling you should love a certain bag because everyone else does, but you can't seem to jump on the bandwagon as easily as they have? I happen to suffer from this particular ailment on a frequent basis. My latest bout came courtesy of the Fendi Unzipped Satchel. I actually like Fendi's latest creation, I just don't love it. I want to love it, but it doesn't wow me like other bags I recommend. Is it chic? Yes. Is it spacious and well appointed? With 11.5 x 16 x 6 dimensions, I'd say it is. Does it have visual appeal? The "unzipped" detailed front with dual pockets does the trick. So why am I so apathetic about it? To be frank, I don't know. I just feel there are better bags out there, and more still to come. I'd rather be patient and wait for the right bag. However, that's just me. I know many of you will love this satchel (and the hobo is even better). The price is pretty fab, too. All I'm saying is that the Fendi Unzipped Satchel is a good buy, just not a great one.

Available in cork or black leather for $1100 via

    Dania, you captured my sentiments exactly. I have read very positive posts about this bag on other blogs and then saw it IRL (hobo version). This style just reminds me of a 'granny' bag trying too hard to be trendy, yet subtle. The hobo version is better, but doesn't wow me either. I do like the functionality of the pockets on the front, but like you said, with all the other bags out there that do or will wow me, I can't get on board with this one. Now, just finding the 'right' bag out of so many gorgeous/creative options is what drives me crazy...

    Isn't it great to have a market saturated with so many viable options? Beats having to beg for a decent design.
