To celebrate 15 years of Fendi’s “Baguette” bag, made famous by the likes of Carrie Bradshaw in Sexy and the City‘s heyday, Rizzoli has just published a book in its honor. The coffee table book, compiled by Silvia Venturini Fendi, illustrates the story behind (including the making of and cultural mark left by) this incredibly impactful little bag, which now comes in more than 700 versions. Arguably the first “It” bag, the Baguette is a timeless, yet bold statement piece. French retailer Colette also jumped on board, and is now selling 37 of the vintage bags. The bags range from $800 to $29,000, so you might be better off with the $75 book. You decide!
