Blame it on Karlito, Fendi’s year-old miniature mascot who launched the current frenzy to clip a fab little friend to your bag. But Karl Lagerfeld’s furry likeness isn't the the only thing the style set is using to make their carryalls one-of-a-kind: Showgoers outside the Milan and Paris fashion shows have been snapped with every kind of doll and decal decorating their designer duffles.
So whether you choose a single Stella McCartney letter as a noncommittal monogram or grab a Hello Kitty coin purse for practical purposes, here are 17 street-style worthy trinkets that look more high fashion than junior high.
