After the Louis Vuitton 100 legendary trunks book and Christian Louboutin exclusive hardback, it is time for Fendi to go down in the ‘pages’ of history. The iconic brand from Italy beyond the confines of whatever regular has recently unveiled the ionic Baguette- a hardback book of 300 pages and named after its popular mini-totes- baguettes. Since its debut in 1997, Fendi has changed the fashion landscape with over 700 styles and steez; certainly, documentation was pending. Edited by Silvia Venturini Fendi, the original designer of the baguettes, this book is released to celebrate Baguette’s 15th anniversary. It hosts 250 spectacular photos that speak of pure aesthetics and craftsmanship.
With pages showcasing limited and vintage Baguette editions as well as artistic interpretations from the likes of Damien Hirst and Jeff Koons, for the ones who follow fashion on the toe, there are remarks by Paola Antonelli, Quirino Conti, and Sarah Jessica Parker to take note of. Priced at $125, this book will be released in June 2012. Will I grab a copy? Definitely.
