Fendi Artist Baguette
Fendi Artist Baguette

This is the handbag that keeps on giving. Apparently the designers at Fendi decided they were completely out of ideas and thought it would be genius to give you a blank bag to let you scribble all over it. And there you have the Fendi Artist Baguette, the do-it-yourself handbag that allows you to paint all over the white canvas with markers. Markers? Not even chic paints? No, of course not paints, not any material that would give an artist a way to possibly design a better bag than Fendi could come up with themselves. You know, I like this idea. The idea is great for the family that has so much money little Suzie would love to color on a designer purse for her 5th birthday. I got a coloring book for my 5th birthday, but little Suzie, the heiress to the post-it dynasty, would love a blank Fendi bag. I find it humorous that Fendi credits their success to three main factors- creativity, technology, and craftsmanship. Creativity, really? Oh ok I did not realize this blank white bag with markers is a creative idea. The only person left to be creative is the buyer, who already has to front over a thousand dollars for this bag. But this idea could be loved by our artistic-minded handbag lovers out there. The important thing is that I do not get one of these bags myself. The artistic gene skipped a generation when it comes to hands-on-arts-and-crafts, so unless I want to look like I am stuck in the 1st grade, I better steer clear of this handbag. Pre-order through Saks for $1,300.

this is a stupid idea for something so expensive. what are you supposed to do when you mess up? what if you hate your design? and there is no way that coloring all over a purse with markers can possibly look good!

Seriously!

I love creativity, but you have to wonder what Fendi was thinking with this one. Reminds me of a kid’s project. I guess I try not to associate a designer bag I’m paying over $1,000 as something for children.

I would be interested to see what designs people come up with on their own for this bag. Maybe some will look good?

I wonder what quality the markers are?

…this seems like a mess.

i’m assuming that anyone who would buy this would disregard the markers and use their own paints to decorate it.

Amanda, that’s what I was thinking. I would buy this bag if it was less than 500. I can’t believe they are selling it for 1300.

I do agree that paying over $1,000 for a do-it-yourself handbag is a BIT steep. I’m curious if anyone has created something that looks good and how well these markers appear on that sort of canvas.

I personally wouldn’t purchase it myself but if given a free bag, I think I would create a satirical design or a caricature of myself (or perhaps of a certain Fendi “designer”). lol.

I once had a doodle teddy bear when I was in elementary school. I think it cost $10 and it was washable…Seriously! What were they thinking?

I absolutely agree with Eponine03! That doodle teddy bear is the first thing that came to my mind. This is such an awful idea..I would feel ridiculous carrying a fendi bag that I had colored all over. Why would anyone pay over $1000 dollars for a purse that they will essentially be designing??

It’s like those adidas add a color shoes that came out like 2 years a go, which were a good idea because they were sneakers and around $1,200 less. Thats a pretty ridculous price for a plain bag you can color on.

I totally agree with Alexa! It’s like they ripped off the idea from Adidas, which had limited ed white sneakers with markers as well.

I like the idea! Of course that kind of DIY bag is not for everyone, but if one has some talent the finished thing could be awesome. And fun!

It’s too expensive though.

I would just buy a plain bag somewhere else cheaper then get some good supplies, like fabric paints, if you’re bad at drawing get some stencils, or transfer a design onto it, I wonder who actually bought this? and how they decorated it?
