Fendi celebrated the 25th anniversary of its iconic Baguette bag in a cacophony of colour, star power and charm at its show at New York Fashion Week. With models and celebrities in their droves in attendance – some themselves featuring in the show – it was a coming together to recognise the It Bag that could. Here, we take a look at some of the best moments from the show you need to be across.

Kim Jones, Artistic Director of Fendi Womenswear, was fascinated by Andy Warhol’s work, blending uptown and downtown, so he invited two close friends to channel that energy in their own take of the Baguette: Marc Jacobs and Tiffany & Co.

Jacobs, dubbed the “king of downtown” and regarded by some as America’s greatest ever designer, crafted a collection that held in unity his vision and played on the proportions of the Fendi logomania. Tiffany & Co., uptown icons, designed Tiffany blue crocodile baguette’s which were affixed with diamond-encrusted white gold buckles.

Supermodel Linda Evangelista made a surprise appearance on the runway at the Fendi Baguette anniversary show, her first runway appearance in 15 years. Clad in a diaphanous ice blue gown, Evangelista stood alongside Silvia Venturini Fendi, Kim Jones and Marc Jacobs, and received a rousing reception.

The Fendi Baguette anniversary show was opened by Lila Moss, daughter of icon Kate Moss who was seated in the front row with friends including Christy Turlington, Amber Valletta and Shalom Harlow. Moss was clad in a pink blouse and sequin silver skirt with a cargo overlay, carrying two Baguette bags. However, the Baguette’s didn’t stop there, with her skirt, sleeves and ankles adorned with mini Baguette’s ideal for storing AirPods, Tic Tacs and two-dollar coins.

“It’s not a bag – it’s a baguette,” Carrie Bradshaw famously uttered in Sex and the City of her accessory. Now, portrayer Sarah Jessica Parker has made her own mark on the It Bag that is synonymous with her character, having worked on four gradient variants of the bag which appeared in the collection.
