When I think about baguette bag, first thing popping right in front of my eyes is the scene from Sex and the City, Carrie in her red V-neck top, stacked gold necklaces with Fendi baguette bag under her arm. I guess we can also talk about that unfortunate scene when Samantha lost her Fendi bag as well. Remember?
Until this year, all these outfits along with the baguette bag were buried in ‘90s archives. However, Fendi decided it the right time to bring back this bag and make it popular again. Instagram has just exploded under the number of photos that cool It-girl squad have been publishing lately.
I admit that baguette is not for everyday wear, especially not for working hours. The reason is simple – besides your phone, wallet, and keys you can’t actually put anything else in there. So, if you are a businesswoman with a laptop and lunch, I guess you should stick to your work bag for day events. However, the baguette is perfect for late night drinks, or those days when you simply want to stroll down the streets.
Short History of Baguette Bag
When Silvia Venturini Fendi proposed to the headquarters her new design of the bag, they were more than skeptical about it. All her colleagues suggested that the bag was too small, comparing to other bags that Fendi offered on the market. But Silvia was determined about it, and so baguette bag was released in 1997.
This bag soon became a cult object. It is not only the fashion accessory but the creative object that many women wanted to have. From Madonna to J Lo, all trendspotters were seen carrying the baguette in the late ‘90s and 2000s.
This year, Fendi bag is here to stay. Even if it has a tote version now, many girls still opt for the small baguette one. Along with the redesigned and revived Dior saddle bag, they are now objects of craving for many It girls.
Small and Chic
This might not be the most functional bag ever, but it is definitely the one that will give you that great ‘90s vibe. You can wear it with all-white-everything look like cool girl Rikke Krefting.
Browns are Trending
Matching your logo brown bag with pants will now give you even better ‘90s glamour. You can easily pull out this outfit for a night out with friends, or for a casual coffee break during the busy day.
White For Summer
Typical Fendi print on this bag will surely make your outfits trendy. The trend of wearing logos is not gone so you can be sure your outfits will be noticed.
Pastels were definitely one of the biggest trends for last and this season. If you have that luck to find baguette bag in pastel pink color, then you can wear it with other pastels – lilac, baby blue or sage green.
You can wear your small Fendi bag more casually like Caro Daur. This larger version is great for those girls who like to carry more things everywhere with them.
