This year marks the 25th anniversary of Fendi’s famous baguette bag. The handbag first hit mainstream popularity after Carrie Bradshaw and the ladies of Sex and the City wore it on their shoulders. And thanks to the recent ’90s fashion revival, the slim shoulder bag is back in style. That said, the OG will cost you well over $2,000. Luckily, if you’re a fan of the overall baguette shape, but don’t want to spend that, plenty of other brands have their own take on it.
Silvia Venturini Fendi designed the “baguette shape” in 1997. Essentially, it’s a simple rectangle with an adjustable shoulder strap. However, its material varies from knit wool and leather to sequins. It’s synonymous with casual, cool girl style, and, these days, it’s a favorite for celebrity and fashion influencers. In fact, you can expect to see a lot of the baguette bag this month around New York Fashion Week. Although little is information is confirmed, the Italian luxury brand is set to present a baguette-focused show on Friday, Sept. 9, to celebrate its anniversary.
