Fendi’s most iconic bag, the Baguette, is getting a celeb makeover. Stars including Sarah Jessica Parker and Rihanna will add their personal touch to the handbag to honor the opening of a new store in New York.
Among the most covetable arm-candy of the late ’90s, the original Baguette was a constant source of envy—especially as it sat nestled neatly beneath the arm of Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw. Fast forward to 2015 and a new version of the bag—the 3Baguette—has been issued, and how fitting that SJP herself is giving it her design treatment.
Rihanna, artist Rachel Feinstein, model Jourdan Dunn, and The Man Repeller's Leandra Medine will also work their fashion magic on the design. Their finished pieces will be displayed in the new store at 598 Madison Avenue in New York, from Feb. 13 to March 13, before being auctioned for charity.
If you want to be in with a chance of owning one of the five fab collaborations then keep an eye on the bags' auction site (launch3baguetteauction.fendi.com), which will go live in late January. Happy bidding!
