Even luxury brands are now trying to cash in on the DIY movement.
On the heels of the Fendi Paint-Your-Own Artist Baguette (now selling at a staggeringly-discounted $585 at Neiman Marcus)…comes the Fendi Baguette Needlepoint Kit.
From the Neiman Marcus website:
- Natural fabric bag.
- Golden hardware.
- Adjustable, interchangeable top handles; one fabric and one leather.
- Flap top with magnetic zucca closure.
- Assorted multicolor thread, three design cards, five needles, and three thimbles.
- 5″H x 10 1/2″W x 1 3/4″D.
- Made in Italy.
If you are feeling crafty (and..um…loaded), it’s available for $995 for preorder at Neiman Marcus.
What do you guys think of this? Are the luxury-items consumer and the DIY-er mutually exclusive??
Why not – gasp – buy your own needlepoint canvas, a couple of embroidery threads, a needle – and MAKE your own front flap to a little bag you already own??
Oh, that’s right. Because it wouldn’t be Fendi then.
