Thought the hype around oversized pouch bags has already died down? Well, at Fendi they certainly don’t think so! Introducing the Fendi First Bag – the latest arm candy from Fendi.
First spotted on brand’s Fall 2021 runway, the bag is Fendi’s take on the slouchy pouch trend. The moment I first saw the photo of the Fendi First bag, it reminded me of a coin purse that my grandmother had. Remember those slouchy vintage coin purses with a ball clasp? The Fendi First Bag is a modern twist on the nostalgic style. The design stands out with an oversized F-shaped clasp wrapping the top of the handbag. As stunning as it is practical, the Fendi First Bag also comes with an optional strap which effortlessly transforms it from an evening clutch to a chic shoulder bag.
Fendi fans will appreciate the interior lining in the iconic Fendi FF Monogram, while everyone else will love the spacious nature of the style. Similarly to other designer pouches, the Fendi First features a single compartment with tons of room for your essentials.
Fendi First Bag Sizes and Materials
Like any new style, the Fendi First was released in a variety of sizes, colors and materials.
When it comes to size, with the Fendi First Bag, you’ve got two options to choose from: Small and Medium. Small measures 26 x 18 x 9.5 cm (length x height x depth) and comes with a strap drop of 43 cm, while the medium sports measurements of 32.5 x 23.5 and 15 cm and has a strap drop of 27 cm.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t find the exact measurements for the Fendi First Bag in inches, neither on fendi.com, nor at other sources. So, I did the conversion myself. See the sizing in the table below:
|Fendi First Bag Style||Size (cm)||Size (inches)|
|Fendi First Small||26 x 18 x 9.5 cm||10.2” x 7” x 3.7”|
|Fendi First Medium||32.5 x 23.5 x 15 cm||12.8” x 9.3” x 5.9”|
Smooth leather versions of the Fendi First Bag come in such colors like black, beige, pink, caramel and dark brown. The new style also appears in python, mink and sheepskin, with the sheepskin option coming in the prettiest shade of light pink. Looks like I already know which handbag I’ll be carrying this winter! But, how much for the Fendi First Bag in sheepskin?
