My Fendi Mon­ster bag, by Candice Ber­gen

I like to wear things with crea­tures on them. My fa­vorite ear­rings are a pair of di­nosaurs. My fa­vorite shoes are vel­vet slip­pers with se­quined and feath­ered heads that look like voodoo priest­esses. So when my daugh­ter gave me this Fendi Mon­ster bag two years ago for my 70th birthday, it be­came my buddy. I think the mon­ster is bril­liantly con­ceived— sim­ply de­signed yet fully re­al­ized, and the eyes are per­fect. It’s fierce and funny. I use it al­most ev­ery day be­cause I haven’t seen a bag that is equal. I also di­vide peo­ple by the way they re­spond to it. It’s sort of like if you’re a dog per­son or not a dog per­son. I re­cently took the Mon­ster with me to Nor­mandy. The French didn’t quite know what to make of it, which is part of the im­mense plea­sure this bag brings. It is truly the gift that keeps on giv­ing. Ber­gen stars in CBS’S re­boot of Mur­phy Brown, pre­mier­ing Sep­tem­ber 27.
