I never, ever, ever thought I would see this.
Fendi has taken their classic baguette handbag originally created in 1925 and turned it into a needlepoint kit!!! Karl Lagerfeld is the creative director, I want to see what he does next.
For $995 you can own this bag in its oh-so-cool little box with Fendi embroidery floss and thimbles (okay, why do we need 3 thimbles to needlepoint a bag?)
I’m still just so amused by it. The entire bag is made from double weave canvas (the old penelope). I can’t tell if it is lined, the flap looks like it isn’t. The edges are bound and the entire thing assembled with the signature gold Fendi clasp.
Here’s the handbag outside of the kit. You can see the construction better in this photo.
Maybe it will go on sale. Not sure what I would stitch on it, but it’s just so darn cute.
