To say that Fendi hit a home run with the Soft Trunk Baguette is a bit of an understatement. There are currently at least nine interpretations available, affirming its status as an up-and-coming icon of the Italian fashion house. And with a name like Soft Trunk Baguette, it isn’t difficult to see where the bag’s inspiration came from.
Think of it as a contemporary take on the beloved Baguette, except in a boxy, structured shape. Parked under Fendi’s men’s range, it also uses only palladium-finish hardware for the FF clasp and accompanying strap. It’s called a soft trunk because you won’t find any hard-sided elements, apart from the rivets in front, of course.
Other plus points include its ease of use, opening easily via the magnetic FF clasp to reveal a microfibre-lined interior with six leather card slots tucked into the inner back wall. Measuring 21.5 cm by 13 cm, the Soft Trunk Baguette is the ultimate companion for all your daily needs. And it does so without looking overly bulky or heavy when slung across your shoulder.
Fendi cleverly designed a sliding top handle which you can lift and carry by hand. So, if you prefer a more streamlined look, just slide it down and you’re good to go.
Logo lovers can opt for the FF motif in fabric or leather, available in a variety of colours ranging from black to brown and darker shades of blue and grey. There are also seasonal takes, such as the cloud-printed leather, Fendi Astrology and Fendi by Marc Jacobs, all part of recent capsule collections.
Prices start at SGD2790 for the Soft Trunk Baguette in fabric and leather, so you just need to decide which style suits you best.
