I am somewhat (majorly) obsessing over the
iconic Fendi Baguette these days.
The Fendi Baguette handbag is a petite, simple design
meant to be casually tucked under your arm
like, well, a baguette.
Except I never tuck baguettes under my arm, but go figure.
This is a handbag for the lady who sees a handbag as a work of art.
Each bag requires a long production time, and is exclusively handmade.
Initially launched in 1997, the baguette has made a huge resurgence
in recent years. To the extent that there is even a book about them.
These bags are incredibly special, and come in many colors and fabrics, pythons, leathers – you name it.

The beaded Fendi’s are super special.
They only make one or two designs in a year,
and are very labor intensive, making them a collectors item.
