Fendi B Bowling Bag
Fendi’s famous giant B buckes are back again this season and flying solo as seen on the new patent leather Bowling Bag. I’ve always been a fan of the B bags by Fendi, and I think this season’s new model is perfectly detailed with a single centered oversized B buckle and a lovely pleated top. It is a wonderful alternative to Fendi’s other bags that commonly feature two large buckles inseatd of one. Also, the shape of the Bowler bag is another great variation as well and is spacious measuring in at 14″x9.5″x7″.
What I love about this bag, besides the buckle, are the chain link shoulder straps on each side with a leather panel placed where the straps would normally fall on your shoulder. I think this provides comfort and is practical as I could see an entire chain strap getting caught on clothing or even becoming hot after being in the sun. Also, the slight orange stitching detail adds minimal color to the bag, even though I’m not a huge fan of orange. I think the orange and white compliment each other very well. And you don’t have to worry about when you set this one down because there are protective feet at the bottom. Shown above is the white patent leather version and it is also available in black patent leather. Last but not least, the top features a zip closure and there is a pocket on the inside with a small Fendi signature plaque neatly displayed on a leather piece.
