It is time to bring out that Baguette of yours and start flaunting because the bag is back. Yes! Fendi has brought back the classic for their Spring 2019 collection and fashionistas are raving about it. The French house has started the #BaguetteFriendsForever series of films, and the phrase, “It’s not a bag, it’s a Baguette” to commemorate the return of the icon.
Hailed as one of fashion’s first ‘It’ bags, the Baguette by Fendi was launched in the year 1997 and is believed to be popularised by Sarah Jessica Parker, as she played Carrie Bradshaw in the romantic comedy-drama, Sex and the City. Designed by Silvia Venturini Fendi at a time when Prada’s nylon backpacks were in, the Baguette really did come as a breath of fresh air.
Our pick of 5 bags will help you be “friends forever” with the Baguette.
1. Embroidered Mama Baguette
Understated and classy, this Mama Baguette is constructed from fabric and decorated with embroidery throughout the exterior. The FF lock comes in gold-tone, the lining in fabric and the flat handle in leather.
2. QuTweet Bird Baguette
This bundle of joy is from Fendi’s QuTweet Capsule collection of 2014 which was inspired by the vibrant wings of tropical birds and the art of origami. It has lively beads forming two birds on the front and dangling fringes around its outline.
3. Zucchino Mama Baguette
Recognisable at first glance, this version in Zucchino canvas is more of a traditional design with the iconic FF logo spread all over the exterior. The logo lock and the buckles are in black tone, and the shoulder strap is cut from leather.
4. Fur Monster Baguette
A rather comical touch to the iconic design, this Baguette is from the brand’s famed Fur Monster line. Sewn from leather, the bag has signature monster eye detailing on the front and a trim of soft fur along the edges.
