Having watched Seasons 1 to 6 of Sex And The City countless times, one of the bags you’ll see over and over in Carrie’s massive closet is the Fendi Baguette, which also happens to be one of the very first designer bags that was loaned to the series.
And after countless episodes of watching Carrie through all her highs and lows, the bag has become a cultural icon in her own right, just like Carrie Bradshaw.
First created in 1997, the small handbag is named after the French loaf, because like the real baguette, Fendi’s version also can be carried under the arm. Having seen at least a 1000 different variations made and sold since the day it was launched, the Fendi Baguette Book celebrates its namesake in all its glory, with 250 pages out of the 344-page tome devoted to full-sized images of the Baguette in all its different permutations, from embroidery to sequins to beading, along with more in exotics like fur and crocodile.
Priced at SGD155 (get it from the new Fendi flagship at Ngee Ann City), the hardcover coffee table tome makes a great gift for fans of this iconic handbag, guaranteeing oohs and aahs with every flip of the page. I would know, I’m still slowly flipping through my own copy, and finding something new to fawn over on every page.
