If you're a frequent visitor, you probably remember reading about Fendi's anniversary push for the Baguette over the past six months. 2012 marked 15 years for the first-ever It Bag, but the celebration is continuing into Spring 2013 with a bunch of incredibly intricate versions of the Fendi Baguette, some of which are brand new, others of which are re-releases of popular iterations from years past.
The Baguette has always been a canvas ripe for adornment because of its petite size and simple structure. It's not too big to carry off serious embellishment, but unlike a box clutch, the relatively generous size gives a designer ample space with which to work. The results are some of the most creative and over-the-top handbags on the designer mass market, and they're often fascinating pieces to investigate closely. The amount of embellishment that can be piled on top of a slim shoulder bag is genuinely something to behold.
