Fendi is an iconic label first started in 1925 and now owned by the LVMH Group. We are all familiar with their “Double F” logo. Their Peekabo bag is a divine classic and their baguettes in many a fashionable woman’s closet.
However, something we do not always see is the whimsical side of Fendi. Available at Neiman Marcus – Fashion’s premier designers, plus beauty’s best brands the Baguette Needlepoint Kit certainly brings a touch of cuteness to the forefront. Labeled “craft couture”, this little kit will get your creative desires going! While I do not embroider, I have dabbled in knitting and crocheting… so for a moment, I begin to delude myself that this adorable little box with beautiful colored yarn and a quite literally – blank canvas – of a handbag is the next product of a budding Picasso-esque master!
The natural fabric bag with golden hardware and two changeable handles – fabric & leather – calls out to me to test my creative skills…I think about the beautiful floral scenery I could create with the silken threads. There are even design cards, needles and thimbles provided so it’s just oh, so easy. Then, I snap out of it, because I am simply not detailed enough to warrant the $995.00 experiment. However those of you who are gifted in this area, might want to take the plunge and create your own work of art! You might even have a very special Aunt and Grandmother who could create a beauty that can be passed down as a family heirloom.
This fun little kit is made in Italy. Bag is 5″ x 10″ x 1 3/4″ and features a flap magnetic closure.Perhaps those of you with the right skill can come up with a beauty like the Abrazzo Peekaboo which is already masterfully embroidered! Only available at FENDI
And if you have no skill… you can always purchase the finished product!
