When Fendi reintroduced the iconic Fendi Baguette just over two years ago, I was instantly smitten. I have been riding the nostalgia wave and loving all of the trends associated with it. As a big Sex and the City fan having grown up during the 90’s, the Baguette bag holds a special place in my heart.

When I buy a new bag, I try to purchase something that is practical and suits my lifestyle. For a long time, that meant I usually went for larger bags and gravitated towards totes or shoulder bags. For that reason, I never really contemplated adding a Baguette to my collection. However, over the last year, I have started carrying a lot less and only taking the basics with me when I’m on the go. For that reason, the Baguette’s smaller stature and tighter interior may work better for me now, especially if I went with the larger size.

Like most premier designer bags, the Baguette comes with a hefty price tag, so I have yet to pull the trigger. When it was first re-introduced, the size and price point were deal breakers, but now, I’m ready to reconsider. I am very carefully considering adding a Fendi Baguette into my collection. I haven’t purchased a premier designer bag this year, so I am trying to weigh my options.

Although my love of the design hasn’t waned in the two years since it’s been back, I do find myself hesitating on the longevity of the Baguette’s design. Will I grow tired of this ultra trendy design? Is it destined to be another trend that lays to rest or is it a new classic? My gut tells me the Baguette may become another trend of the past that could potentially reappear in another 15 years, but tell me, do you think it’s a classic?

Should I buy a Fendi Baguette? I would love to add the largest size (old habits die hard), but the smaller continental wallet on a chain is a more affordable option. Let me know what you think in the comments!

Hasn’t it been a classic all along?

I suppose another thing to ask yourself is, do you care if it’s an IT bag? A lot of the times, I fall in love with similar bags with what the masses fall for. Especially being on social media it’s hard not to when you see it every single day. In my opinion I think the Fendi baguette is a beautiful bag and will be a great one to add to your collection whether it lasts the “trend” season.

I really like the Mama Baguette, especially vintage ones – big enough to be practical and not just a trendy piece like most small bags.

I bought a baguette and a mama baguette right as they were going out of style in the monogram. I got them dirt cheap. I see that they now go for 4-5 times what I paid for them. Even though they were no longer It bags, I continued to carry them. I would love to have a modern leather version because I really like the top handle, but I’m not interested in paying $3200 for one. Maybe it’s me, but I don’t find them to be worth that particular price tag.

They’re doing another “re edition” the 1997. Lol
