Last week, Fendi’s 3Baguette Project charity auction went live, allowing bidding to begin on five unique and gorgeous creations designed in collaboration with five iconic women of New York City. Musician Rihanna, actress Sarah Jessica Parker, artist Rachel Feinstein, blogger Leandra Medine and model Jourdan Dunn were invited to put their personalized touch on Fendi’s classic 3Baguette bag. As a result, each handbag is exquisitely designed to reflect their distinctive style. The auction, which ends March 13th, 2015, will benefit the organizations dear to each woman’s heart.
Her glamorous and unmistakable style is clear in Rihanna’s creation for the 3Baguette Project. Featuring a black velvet base, her 3Baguette is luxurious with embroidered black lurex on mink. With croco handle and black crystal stones encrusting the enclosure, this handbag screams rockstar.
Sarah Jessica Parker’s City Chic
Combining unexpected textures and colors, Sarah Jessica Parker’s 3Baguette is all about surprising sophistication. With shades of rich purple satin accented by black velvet and shimmering gold, this chic creation is as refined as it is fun.
Leandra Medine’s Vibrant Palette
Leandra Medine’s creation for the 3Baguette Project is infused with colorful details and whimsical accents. The blogger’s bold personality comes through in the bright chiffon, vibrant sequins and feathers that adorn the bag’s flap. Neon blue and vivid orange Moroccan inspired embroidery offer a welcome splash of color to the white base.
Jourdan Dunn’s Homage to Heritage
Taking a hint from the Jamaican flag, Jourdan Dunn’s 3Baguette is clad in yellow, green and black, reflecting the model’s roots. For an even more personal touch, a discreet quote inspired by Dunn’s tattoo is hidden underneath the bag’s flap: “you owe it to yourself, set the world on fire.” With supple green leather, bright yellow python skin and sultry red sides, this handbag is as fierce as Dunn herself.
Rachel Feinstein’s Ode to Historic Art
Inspired by a Pompeii mosaic floor pattern, Rachel Feinstein’s 3Baguette Project creation is intricate and feminine. The visual artist’s handbag combines beaded embroidery, crystals and threads to form a sea life motif. With shades of brown accented by golden metal hardware and black plexiglass, a stunning marble effect is created.
