The Fendi Baguette Needlepoint Kit
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!
