The Fendi DotCom satchel is one of the hottest new handbags of 2016. Fendi is already known for designing beautiful, high quality, timeless handbags, so when they launched the Fendi DotCom, I knew it would be a winner!
The initial launch of the Fendi DotCom satchel offers the handbag in a creamy milk hue, classic black, cool sky blue, bark, red, and dove grey. There are also versions with whip-stitching!. Although the black with cobalt clutch insert was calling my name, I already have a couple of black satchels, so I decided to go for the dove grey since I do not own a satchel in this neutral hue. I am so glad I went with this color! The dove grey will be a beautiful light color for the spring and summer months; plus it is a color which transcends season. Love!
The Fendi DotCom satchel is made from smooth leather with a suede interior. The leather can scratch, which I already found out, but the scratch blends into the leather and cannot be easily seen without really looking hard. I have a feeling over time, the leather will soften a bit and offer a beautiful patina. I am looking forward to it aging a bit.
I love the versatility of the Fendi DotCom satchel. It has two large compartments with two equal interior pockets which each fit an iPhone perfectly. The interior clutch is offered in a contrasting color, mine is poppy. The clutch is great for storing small items such as keys or lipstick. It can also be removed and worn as a clutch. This makes the Fendi DotCom a great day into evening bag. You can go from work to dinner just by removing the clutch and carrying it in lieu of the satchel. Love that!
There are two ways to carry the Fendi DotCom satchel. There is a classic lady bag satchel top handle which can be worn over the forearm, or carried by hand. The Fendi DotCom satchel also offers a detachable shoulder strap which allows the bag to hang at the hip. The straps are on the thick side; making them extremely comfortable. I am in love!
The interior is roomy enough to carry file folders for work, an iPad, a book, and I can detach the lens from my DSLR camera and place both parts in the bag. It is great! This is a perfect satchel for work if you do not have to carry too many things with you. It has a beautiful formal, structured look which looks fabulous with office attire, dressy attire, daytime fundraiser ensembles, and a fabulous lunch outfit. This can easily be a workhorse handbag.
The Fendi DotCom satchel is currently part of Fendi’s resort 2016 collection, but it will be continuing for many seasons to come since it is already proving to be popular. The handbag is selling out fast!
