Exquisite patterns, new arrivals, deluxe materials and precious stones multiplied the Baguettemania. 250 pages are not enough to tell all the details of the last 15 years, but each page is a remarkable story climax. Prestigious designers have used their talent to beautify a baguette, adorned by magnificent customization, polish and embroidery. From the exotic Savanna to the power of nowadays women, every bag is inspirational.
 

The boom of this Fendi trend product was personified in a “Sex and the City” episode, when a thief was robbing Carrie Bradshaw. The phrase that she shouted at him will always me remember: “This is not a bag. This is a baguette!” For many, these luxury bags are also pieces of art. The enhancement around its outlines captivates its consumers and there’s no limit of baguettes to buy. Passion is endless and baguettes’ desire too. The book is the materialization of this sentimental journey that accelerates the heartbeat.
