In the last couple of years, both Shia Labouf and Kristen Stewart tried unsuccessfully to bring back the rat tail haircut (alas, the Thompson Twins just did it so much better). But other than that, we must admit haven’t seen much in the way of rodent referencing style.
But 2020 is indeed the actual Year of the Rat (no coincidence, it’s also a presidential election year). And Fendi is celebrating with a new Chinese New Year capsule collection that makes uniquely stylish reference to the furry little scavengers. The Women’s Collection includes the iconic Peekaboo and Baguette bags in elegant rose gold, and unique materials include nappa leather and dazzling sequins. There are also Pequin jewelry boxes and rose gold wallets.
For the Men’s Collection, the red/gold color combination symbolizes luck and joy—the latter of which we are very much in need of right now. A cartoonish rat motif, specially designed for this line, lends a cheeky touch to the mini bag, wallet, and card holder.
The entire rat-tastic range will be available as of January, in Fendi boutiques worldwide and on Fendi.com. Oh, and 2021 is the Year of the Ox—already looking forward to fashion’s tribute.
