The Fendi Pre-Fall 2012 Collection is here! Wow, it is WAY too early to be thinking about fall (or pre-fall for that matter)! But this collection is now available to purchase, so I figured I might as well check it out. Interestingly, there was one bag that grabbed my attention almost immediately. Meet the Fendi Plaid Chameleon Tote!
I am not huge on Fendi, but I have always liked the Chameleon Tote. I like how it comes in more than one size and the wide range of colors that are available. The reason this particular version caught my eye was the unusual colorblocking. Rather than two or more solid colors, this version paired a solid (leather) with a print (fabric). I do like the cherry red. It is such a versatile, yet cheery color. But what is up with the plaid? I mean, it isn’t ugly or anything. The brown on tan pattern actually looks kind of nice. It’s just that it looks a bit Christmas-y. And those candy-like studs are certainly not helping. This version is okay, but it is just way too early for me to even want to look at it objectively. Give me a few months, I might change my mind once the trees start changing color.
