Sarah Jessica Parker Designed a Fendi Bag, Honoring Sex and the City
Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha, and Miranda all had a love affair with Fendi. Purses, shoes, accessories, you name it. The girls even got kicked out of Hugh Hefner's mansion when Samantha picked a fight with a Playboy bunny over a bootleg Fendi purse. And Charlotte, after going through marital troubles with Trey, confesses and calls her marriage a Fake Fendi. And now, Sarah Jessica Parker gets to pay homage to the beloved series by designing a Fendi bag.
Parker will be putting her own spin on the Baguette bag. Named 3Baguette, the new purse is part of a project called 3BaguetteProject that brings together Rihanna, Rachel Feinstein, Man Repeller aka Leandra Medine, and Rihanna to design a 3Baguette bag to celebrate the new flagship store in New York on 598 Madison Ave. The best part? All proceeds will go to the charity of their choice.
Parker's proceeds from the bag will go to the Brain Trauma Foundation. SJP's 3Baguette comes in gold and sports purple, white, navy, black, and brown stripes. Of course, the classic Fendi buckle is featured.
For Parker, this project was especially near to her heart because of the luxury brand's close ties with the show. She told InStyle, "Fendi was integral in the storytelling on Sex and the City, and was the first big fashion house that worked with us. Not many others allowed us the opportunity to have access and help shape our story. It was an important moment that helped give us greater fashion credibility. It’s such an important, historic house and I love how gracious and bold they always are.”
The five bags will be displayed for a month at the new flagship store, from February 13 to March 13. Bags can be purchased at the live auction site (which as not yet launched), launch3baguetteauction.fendi.com.
