Fendi Brazil Baguette Bag

While there have been plenty of recent designs that continue to place Fendi firmly on our handbag radar, none has had such a lasting influence and effect on fashion as the Baguette. No matter how many new bags follow, there is something so special about the Baguette that makes it continue to shine as the star of the Fendi show.

Reese Witherspoon carries a Fendi 2Jours Tote (5)

Here’s Reese Witherspoon shopping at a Whole Foods in LA (where the daytime lighting is strangely perfect), carrying a paper bag of fresh flowers and other goodies in one arm and an orange Fendi 2Jours Tote on the other.

We’re all about radical truth-telling in these parts (ok, maybe it could be more accurately termed as radical opinion-sharing), and honestly, I don’t really like the Fendi Baguette, as a bag concept. I like that the size proportion of the bag’s body makes it ripe for embellishment, and I like all the creative things that Fendi’s done with it over its decade-plus lifespan, but I really wish that the Baguette would get re-imagine as a crossbody.

Sometimes, there’s virtue in not quite matching. Often, I look at people wearing multiple pieces that are obviously from the same collection and see someone that would do well to think a bit harder about how to assemble an outfit.

Fendi 2Jours Studded Neoprene Tote

Spotting a bag that you really, truly adore during a fashion show is one of the most agonizing things about working in this business. You know it’ll take six months for the object of your affections to even become nominally available, and when it does, the price will, in all likelihood, make you dizzy.

Babies might be too little to carry real handbags for a few reasons (among them: weak shoulders, frustratingly limited motor skills, lack of personal possessions that require carrying), but that doesn’t mean that their uber-fashionable mamas shouldn’t kit them out in their own image, all the way down to a baby-scaled representation of their own handbags.

Fendi 2Jours Tote

For those of us who cover it, Fashion Week (Err, month. It’s definitely a month.) is like a giant K-hole of glitter and fur and champagne cocktails and middle-of-the-night coverage deadlines that never relents, not even on weekends.

Pamella DeVos' Collection of 75 Fendi Baguettes (2)

Around these parts, there’s nothing we love better than a good bag collection. (Ok, maybe we love a good sale more, but most of the sales are over for the season, so there’s no use crying about it, ok?) The psychological nature of collection is such that people who are moved to amass giant assortments of things usually pick something very particular on which to fixate, and in the case of Pamella DeVos, that lust object is the iconic Fendi Baguette.
