Books with Style Fendi Baguette -
When it first appeared in 1997, the so-called Fendi Baguette instantly became one of the most popular and important accessories of the decade, earning Fendi a Fashion Group International award for accessories in 2000 and creating an iconic style that women coveted and collected. This richly illustrated book is the first to comprehensively focus on Fendi's signature bag, celebrating its history, craftsmanship, and artisanal design. Designed after its baked French namesake, the Baguette was to be carried under the arm. It has been created in over 700 styles, some simple and understated and others rendered in luxe materials such as fur, sequins, and crocodile leather. Contributors include actress Sarah Jessica Parker, novelist Banana Yoshimoto, art critic Achille Bonito Oliva, and MoMA design curator Paola Antonelli.
