FENDI AND TIFFANY & CO JOIN FORCES, CREATING THE BAGUETTE BAG HANDCRAFTED ENTIRELY IN SILVER
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the FENDI Baguette bag, as well as its artistry and influence on the world, FENDI and Tiffany & Co. joined forces to pay homage to the iconic bag created by Silvia Venturini Fendi in 1997. Named after its attitude and worn under the arm like a baguette loaf, the Baguette bag has become a cult object, a cultural phenomenon that immediately revolutionized the fashion industry by defining an archetype of style.
Through its FENDI Baguette ‘hand in hand’ initiative, the Italian luxury House partnered with Tiffany ‘Makers’—the artisans at the famed Tiffany & Co. hollowware workshop in Rhode Island—bringing to life an exclusive Tiffany Baguette bag in sterling silver. The artisanal masterpiece is an homage to heritage. A group of Tiffany Makers crafted the Tiffany Baguette bag in sterling silver over a period of four months. The bag is engraved with lilies, the national flower of Italy, and roses, the national flower of New York State. It is also the first of FENDI’s ‘hand in hand’ partnerships to originate outside of Italy and is a showcase of Tiffany & Co.’s superlative craftsmanship.
In addition to this unique piece is a dedicated capsule of Tiffany Baguette bags in smooth leather, shiny croco leather with diamonds and silk satin. Offered in medium, nano and pico sizes, the capsule of Tiffany Baguette bags pays homage to the most significant codes of the two Houses.
