“It’s not a bag, it’s a Baguette.” Those were the famous words spoken by Sarah Jessica Parker in a season three episode of Sex And The City, when her character Carrie Bradshaw was in the midst of being mugged. It was this phrase that helped to skyrocket the Fendi baguette to fame, solidifying the item as an in-demand, must-have accessory and one of the best designer handbags of all time.
Now over twenty years later, the bag (or should I say, baguette) is still as popular as ever.
Last September, Fendi celebrated 25 years of its iconic design with a dedicated runway show in New York. For the event, Fendi called upon modelling superstars like Linda Evangelista and had the industry A-list seated front row, Kate Moss and Kim Kardashian included.
While the runway itself was much-talked-about and publicised highly on social media, the event was so all-encompassing that it was easy to miss the finer details. Like the announcement and debut of a Fendi x Tiffany & Co. collaboration, for example.
Yes, Fendi and Tiffany have worked together to create a unique interpretation of the famous baguette bag and the coveted item is finally set to be released today!
Of course, it will come as no surprise to learn that Tiffany's Fendi Baguette will be available in the jeweller's signature blue shade. The collaboration includes three different interations of the baguette, including a medium size handbag, a nano bag and an even smaller bag charm.
Debuted on the runway by none other than Bella Hadid, the collaboration also includes a reimagining of Fendi's iconic hardware. While every baguette comes adorned with a Fendi FF Zucca clasp, Tiffany has added its signature Tiffany T into the mix, combining both brands' logos in one. It's a true match made in fashion heaven.
The collection is set to debut today, but will only be available to purchase for 24 hours, while quantities remain available. To purchase a piece from the collection, you'll need to join the waiting room on Tiffany's website, which is set to open at 8:30am EST (1:30 PM in the UK).
While it might be somewhat of a feat to get your hands on a Tiffany & Co x Fendi baguette, the iconic handbag (without the Tiffany blue hue) is readily available online. Keep scrolling to shop other Fendi baguettes below, including vintage and preloved iterations.
