Anyone up for a skunk fur leather bag? Ummâ€¦ no thank you. I apologize to any fans of this particular bag, but Iâ€™m morbidly shocked at how horrid this handbag is. Did the House of Fendi seriously have to â€˜killâ€™ (no pun intended) the classic look of its latest Peekaboo tote by throwing on a pelt of skunk fur onto this bag? If they sought to create a classy rich leather bag adored in an exotic choice of fur, I say they failed miserably. Besides the not so attractive furry bag appearance, I canâ€™t decide if I dislike this bag for the fact thatâ€™s itâ€™s sporting a dead skunk on it or because itâ€™s made out of skunk! Right off the bat, thereâ€™s an unattractive feeling towards this bag filled with reminders of how bad skunks really do smell. I say Fendi should leave the rodents to American Folk leader Davy Crockett to wear, as he was possibly the only person who could have pulled this look off.
I can honestly say that for once, anti-fur and fur industry supporters unite and agree that this Fendi piece sure does stink!
