Happy Birthday Baguette!

No, not the bread!

Today Fendi is celebrating the 15th anniversary of its iconic bag by releasing a chic coffee table book (You know how fashionistas love coffee table books)

The book not only tell story of the fabulous bag but also showcases some of Silvia Venturini Fendi’s favorite Baguettes. Also inspired by the celebration six memorable styles of the Baguette bag will land in Fendi stores worldwide.

One of the eight contributors of the book is of course  SJP.  Let’s not forget how in the early days of the baguette, her character Carrie Bradshaw was one of the biggest Baguette addict. Remember the episode were  she gets mugged?

 ”Having the Fendi Baguette was a very big deal, and the gateway to everything else. It really opened the floodgates and influenced the storyline—especially Carrie’s habit of spending more money on fashion than her home,” she told the Times.

And as a true bag-aholic, of course I had to share my favorites with you guys! I especially love the make your own bag one!

 

P.S. How about if we finish with a poem to the baguette (seriously I’m not kidding), curtsey of Japanese writer Banana Yoshimoto

Tiny Friend

It wouldn’t suit me if it were even a smidgen bigger.
And if it were even a little smaller, it would double as an ornament.
We all find ourselves alone from time to time –
in a party, in a car, in a restaurant, or walking down the street.
We may not know why we are alone, or even why we are here.
In times like this, this bag will stay close beside
you like a puppy, like a parrot perching on your shoulder,
or like the doll you were never without in your childhood.
Yes, it stays with you just like a best friend.
