Arguably the first real 'it bag', the hype and furore surrounding this was its price tag - upwards of £1,000. Created in 1998 the idea behind the Baguette, according to it's creator, Silvia Venturini Fendi, was that each one was a mini piece of art that would jazz up any outfit.
It proved irresistible arm candy for even fictional characters such as SATC's Carrie Bradshaw
, coming in any colour leather and fabric, including exotic skins (lizard, crocodile and mink), sometimes patchworked together and woven with gold thread and festooned with diamonds.
Despite the fact it just about fits keys, lipstick and a couple of credit cards, the Baguette continues to sell out. But hey, practicality wasn't, isn't and never will be a selling point of an iconic bag.
