Fendi celebrates 25 years of its famous baguette in NYC: Kim Kardashian, Sarah Jessica Parker and Lee Min-ho join

You might have thought it was a movie premiere, with the hoopla converted outside the Hammerstein Ballroom in midtown Manhattan. But inside, despite the celebrity’s presence, the real star was a handbag. Not just any handbag, but”Baguette“- named for the ubiquitous Fendi bag created 25 years ago and the long French loaf of bread and the way it is carried under the arm of even the discerning buyer. Fendi Friday Night Show Was a Big Birthday Party To the bag and its long-standing claim to pop-culture fame.

But why New York, when Fendi usually shows up in Italy? The bag was an early success and Pop-culture resonance in New YorkMost memorably immortalized in a 2000 episode of “Sex and the City”, a robber dared to try to take one from Carrie Bradshaw when he clearly didn’t know what it was called. .

“Give me your bag,” demanded the thug in the street. “It’s a baguette!” Carey advised her as she worked with her bright purple version.

It’s safe to say that everyone knew their bags from their baguettes on Friday night, when about 600 people packed into the ballroom — some on the main floor and others in the high balconies — to celebrate the bag and its many iterations.

The evening marked a three-way cooperation. Fendi women’s designer Kim Jones brought in her friend and lifelong boss, Marc Jacobs — the quintessential New York designer — to lend her distinctively romantic streetwear vibe to a series of 10 or so artists, including, of course, the baguette. (“I’m not one to shy away from an iconic bag,” Jacobs was quoted as saying at the theater-style event.) And jeweler Tiffany & Co presented their own baguettes in signature robin-egg blue.

In the front row sat Kim Kardashian, blonde locks and a figure-hugging sheer and sequined dress, but baguettes were the focus on the runway. There were large baguettes, small baguettes, nano-sized baguettes. Shiny baguettes, fluffy baguettes, sparkly and smooth baguettes.

There were fanny-pack baguettes, and sometimes double baguettes – two sizes stacked together. Pockets were repurposed as baguettes. There were tiny baguettes in satin built on tube socks – a perfect place to put small gadgets – or if you wanted them closer to your head attached to a satin baseball cap. The vibe was a mix of fancy and casual, sequins and sweatshirts.

As the show began, a huge cloth dropped to the ground on the wall to reveal a giant mirror, suddenly allowing the entire room, the balconies and everyone to see themselves. The models continued to move across the floor, but when they were done, the mirror suddenly disappeared and the models were standing in a giant display case, as if at a store.

Linda Evangelista, in a huge Tiffany blue cape and gown, came out with the designers for a final bow. She lauded the ’90s supermodel, now 57, in a very public moment for what she recently described as a disastrous body-sculpting process that has disfigured her.
