Moonlight Sonata

It’s the other side of Sunshine – the brand new Moonlight satchel bag by Fendi, seen at the maison’s SS21 show, with its unmistakable half-moon shape.

With Spring in the air, it’s time for a brand new tote. Following the success of the iconic Shopper, the Fendi Sunshine welcomes a new shape in the family, the Moonlight bag, launched for the first time on the Fendi Spring/Summer 2021 catwalk.

Named after its half-moon shape, this compact satchel bag with a clean top-line stays true to the Sunshine Shopper by featuring all its distinctive codes.

The round design is adorned on the sides by the signature rigid tortoiseshell-effect details, recalling the handles of the Sunshine Shopper. The frontal flap is peppered by the traditional tone-on-tone Selleria handmade stitches of the Maison and embellished with a soft gold guilloché metal buckle with the FF logo, adding a precious and bold detail to the bag. A whispered and surprising fashion touch, the hot-stamped Fendi Roma script is embossed under the flap, revealed as one opens the bag.

The final twist is given by the adjustable shoulder strap enabling an easy double carry, cross-body or under the shoulder, whilst the colour palette – black, brown, grey and green, but also yellow, orange and light blue – reflects the strong and versatile attitude of this contemporary bag.

Lifestyle Insider is a kind of junction point, connecting people with diverse interests that touch on the more luxurious aspects of lifestyle – fashion, design, travel, food and spirits, art, watches and jewellery, cars, yachts, and aviation, and technology. People today don’t fit into boxes and categories. In our individual ways, we are interested in diverse themes, products, and the challenges that face our world today. You will judge how well this effort of mine caters to your passions and proclivities.

Lifestyle Insider is a showcase of all that is beautiful and luxe. Behind every creation, is a designer, chef, entrepreneur, or a design maison. I have delved into my own appreciation for objetsde luxe that I have admired over the years – be it a love of fashion from the world’s top Parisian and Italian fashion maisons and their ’90s muses, or the care that goes into sari and Indian textile collections in my own family. Growing up on four continents, as the daughter of a former Indian Ambassador, I’ve seen a remarkable array of historic places and met a myriad people. My aim is to bring my world view into this website, a curation of what I find particularly stunning, unique, and newsworthy.

It’s an exciting time for brands all over the world. With change comes opportunity. With the global ‘reset’ and uncertainty on many fronts, there is a chance to write a new script. Let’s be those pioneers.

A bit about me:
A luxury and fashion journalist with 25 years of experience in publishing and magazine journalism, I have edited some of India’s top fashion and luxury magazines. I got my BA in Comparative Literature from UC Berkeley, and went on to receive my Master’s in English and French from the University of Strasbourg, France. I have also studied German and Film. I live in Gurugram, India, and look forward to once again exploring our world with a new-found freedom.
