Fendi Bead Square Clutch or a Coaster

This Fendi clutch has to be one of the most not so savvy handbags I have seen so far this season. First, it's really heavy in my hand. Second, it's only 1 cm thick even the Fendi SA tells me the clutch is more of a conversational piece rather than a functional clutch. A gal can put a key, a couple of credit cards and nothing else. I can't even slip a tube of lipstick in there because the tube is greater than 1 cm. My SA did not have the retail price but I would put it at around $3000 or more. Does anyone know, else I will update later. It's unique but not savvy! What do you think?

  2. I don't like it much because it's just so pointless - it's really just like jewellery as it isn't functional. Unlike jewellery though, you can't actually wear it but have to carry it around. Hassle!

  3. I guess it is a quirky piece that can be used only once(?) for a statement, but it won't be that practical... It does require someone with bodyguard to handle it... heheee! I'm with you xxxxxxx

  4. Yeah I need a purse to carry stuff...especially lipstick - this is not very functional!

  5. Maybe you can use it as a wallet and stick inside of your purse!

  6. I remember seeing that purse in the fendi fall preview window and although it's fun to look at, it just seemed awkward and almost nerdy instead of chic. I can't imagine anyone owning it for that price point/with it being so heavy. Some things are better left on the runway and out of production.

  7. I agree, no savviness in carrying a 3000 dollar CD case! Maybe if I were a spy and had several very neatly folded incriminating pieces of paper inside, it would make some sense.

  8. It is very cool-looking, but more like a piece of art than a functional clutch, it seems . . . and definitely reminds me of a trivet more than a handbag!

  9. You're so right, when sad or tired, large sunglasses will do the trick!

    i think it's too stylish for its own good. while a purse is clearly a part of an outfit, it's supposed to serve a purpose, whereas this is just silly.

  12. beautiful, classy and cool, but not practical....only good to keep money, but, you know, with money you can buy everything, so the essencial is money with those handbags :) Do you agree?

  17. I'm kinda over bags that are not functional. Especially if it's heavy but you can't fit anything in it.

  18. Probably not savvy, you're right.

  19. I sort of like it, especially for it's unique character. I definitly agree that it's functionaly is slim to none and the comment about using it as a wallet was a good one.
