Fendi Women’s Fall Winter 2011 – Cubist Art School Teacher Chic with A Touch of Governess Charm

Posted in Fashion, Fendi with tags , on March 25, 2011 by Alan + Mei-Mei the pug

I have to say this is my favorite collection so far from Fendi’s collection! From the inspirations to the styling of each garments, full of the “Cubism” artistic feels to it that makes Fendi’s fall winter 2011 collection totally different than the usual Fendi looks. Starting from the runway backdrop, a Cubist collage made from scraps of corrugated cardboards & almost street poster-ish Fendi logos randomly plastered on to the wall, it sets the mood for this beautiful artistic “Cubist” inspired collection.

“The Aficionado” by Pablo Picasso in 1912
 

The show was full of beautiful & interestingly constructed coats & dresses done in almost a boho chic style but a more “Controled” kinda way, feels like a super chic cubist art school teacher / governess that that just finished the painting class and had some left over paint on her hair ( just like those bright blue, red, green & purple hair extensions they loosely mixed into each model’s hair), finished off the look with bright color knit stocking & mary jane shoes.

Posted in Fendi, Handbags & Accessories with tags on October 26, 2010 by Alan + Mei-Mei the pug

When you walk into any department stores or designer boutiques, here are oceans of luxury goods that flooded the stores with flashy, flamboyant, in your face “I am a Rich Bitch” kinda clothing, handbags & accessories …. Which I am a big fan of some of them! Just like some of my favorite designer’s creations such as Christian Lacroix, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace. But ! There is a part of me (maybe I have a split personality haha!) that I’ve always appreciate the “Hidden Luxury” details that is just luxurious without letting everyone know you’ve paid thousands of dollars for it and ONLY you know it’s supreme quality, workmanships & details that has goes into making the piece of art.

Create Your Own Masterpiece with FENDI Baguette DIY Needlepoint Kit

Posted in Fendi, Handbags & Accessories with tags , , , , , , on March 21, 2010 by Alan + Mei-Mei the pug

OMG! this is just too cool! You can create your own unique one of the kind Fendi Baguette! But I don’t think I’d have the guts to sew or draw on a thousand dollar bag, but it’s such a great idea!

Every time I attempt to pull a “Martha Stewart” moment thinking I can be like a domestic diva like her turning an ugly flea market find junk into a paper-mache chandelier, it’s always a miserably failure. So needless to say, I haven’t been brave enough to attempt or having a thought to decorate my own FENDI Baguette!

So, of course, when I saw Fendi’s new Baguette Needlepoint Stitch Kit, designed by Silvia Venturini FENDI, I’m just not sure I can do it. Initially, I was excited like a little kid at the candy store! The bright colorful packaging box! It was luring me into this FENDI fantasy world like a whirling cotton candy machine that tells me, yes buy me! Buy me! And, then, I saw the contents of the box – and that’s when my rainbow sparkling, unicorn flying, Fendi-wonderland bubble bursted & face the reality.

Inside the box, you’ll find a basic canvas baguette, filled with color threads of every color in the rainbow, and instructions on how you can embroider your very own bag using needlepoint. HELLO! I will be a nervous wreck & so afraid if I make a boo-boo, then my $995 FENDI Baguette will be ruin! Also for this price, they better come already beaded, embroidered and ready to use! This is not the first time FENDI has come up with a “Do it yourself” bag, just about an year ago FENDI has a similar bag that’s made of white color canvas and came with 10 permanent pantone markers so you can create your own “Masterpiece”

But I have to say, it is a charming idea that FENDI has came up with this D.I.Y. Baguette Needlepoint Kit! And for those of you who are brave enough to do it yourself, more power to you! and I bow to your courage! Haha

If you are interested to get one of this fabulous D.I.Y. FENDI Baguette Needle Point Kit, it’s available at
Neiman Marcus.com Also at Net-A-Porter.com (UK store)

Until next time, be well & look fabulous!

OMG! I am crazy about this Limited Edition FENDI Grey Jersey Peekaboo Satchel w/ Hot Pink Leather Lining!! It’s so uptown chic yet downtown cool! Combining the everyday material as the jersey fabric that we wear as the sweatshirt with luxurious hot pink color leather, it’s a must have for every hip fashionistas!

The Fendi Peek-a-Boo bag is an “underground” celebrity it bag. It’s a pretty low-key handbag, , but it just screams luxury.

We’ve been reporting many different style of the Fendi Peekaboo Satchel in our blog, but this new jersey peekaboo is one of my favorite one, because it has a very similar shape to the Hermes Kelly bag, but this Fendi Peekaboo satchel has a classic shape without seeming “snoby” and bourgeois like the Hermes Kelly…. and it’s way more hip and easy to carry. Don’t get me wrong i love Hermes, but compare to Fendi’s peekaboo, I like this bag more, it’s just my opinion.

• Light grey jersey fabric with hot pink leather lining.
• Goldtone and silvertone hardware.
• Top handle with rings; 4 1/2″ drop.
• Adjustable, removable shoulder strap; 25″ drop.

FENDI Limited Edition Silver Peekaboo Dégradé Bag

Posted in Fendi, Handbags & Accessories with tags , , , , , , , , , on March 13, 2010 by Alan + Mei-Mei the pug

Fendi keeps making me sad. I want to like Fendi, I want to embrace their bags for the past couple seasons, but I rarely find myself doing so. Especially seeing their ugly Fendi “B” bag, makes me loose faith in this fabulous fashion house…..

(This is the super ugly “B” bags!!! barf !)

Recently, Fendi is sneaking in with some bags that we are liking, which gives us hope that Fendi is trying to get back into our hearts. The Fendi Peek-a-Boo Bag is the most recent popular bag from Fendi, being seen in many renditions and carried by celebrities. Let’s take a closer look at the Peek a Boo.

Fendi’s exquisite black and gray dégradé leather Peek-a-boo bag with a decadent gold leather interior is a subtle way to display your style wealth. Carry this beautifully crafted investment piece open to accent a professional ensemble with a flash of hot metallics.

Black goat leather tote with burnished silver-tone metal hardware. Fendi tote has a dégradé black and anthracite effect at front and back, handle at top, logo-embossed turnlock fastenings at top, pouch compartments at front and back, push-stud fastening straps at each side, a long detachable shoulder strap, internal zipped compartment and has a degradé gold and black leather and black suede lining.


Width 15″ / 37cm
Height 12″ / 31cm
Depth 7″ / 17cm
Handle Drop 5″ / 12cm

When I saw this bag I quickly ordered 2! So I can keep one for myself and one for our lucky customer at Luxe-Gifts.com. It’s a limited edition now only available at Luxe-Gifts.com for $2,650

There is a similar one on Nordstrom it has the same silver metalic effect on both front & back but inside is all suede lining and the clasp at the top opening is gold instead of this one of the kind hand etched silver antique silver finished as the one on Luxe-Gifts.com

Treat yourself with this fabulous classic bag that will last you for a long time!! I am glad I got mine !! woo hoo!
