It’s 2019, which means that things today are a lot different than they were 10 years ago, or even five years ago! Fashion has become much more inclusive than it ever was before, and I have a feeling that as time goes on it’s only going to continue to become more accepting and fluid. I think that this focus on individuality over gender roles is a great thing, but that is a topic for a whole other debate. What prompted this not-so-outrageous revelation was the runway images from Fendi’s Mens SS 2020 show. Male models carried handbag after handbag, and it’s rare that the bags steal the show when it’s a mens collection being shown, but this season that just may be the case.
As you would expect for Spring/Summer, the palette for this collection featured mostly earthy tones and textures. Models carried big totes with intricate leather details and there were Baguettes galore. Many versions of the iconic Fendi baguette appeared, including exotics and raffia iterations. Fendi’s ever popular Peekaboo walked the runway as well in a wide array of options from the iconic original to the newer Peekaboo X-Lite. View all of the bags from the runway below.
