Not many bags are worth splurging out on a mega fashion show with some of the world’s biggest celebrities flown in to attend. But as one of the earliest progenitors of the “It-bag” craze, the Baguette is as much a fashion entity as it is a pop culture one.
In a tribute to the influential bag’s 25th anniversary, Fendi pulled all out the stops in a extravagant show staged in New York’s massive Hammerstein Ballroom, with major names from the worlds of fashion (Kate! Linda! Christy!), music (Grace Jones) and entertainment (Kim Kardashian and Baguette fairy godmother Sarah Jessica Parker) all in attendance, alongside the brand’s ambassadors like Song Hye Kyo and Lee MinHo.
P.S. If you’re wondering why Fendi chose to stage this spectacle in New York instead of their home turf of Rome, well few would dispute that the Baguette is practically synonymous with one of New York’s most indelible icons: Sex and the City and its protagonist, Carrie Bradshaw.
Here, a lowdown on the show and the collection.
