$1,300 DIY Bag

Fendi Artist Baguette Bag

— March 1, 2008 — Luxury
Have you ever looked at an expensive design and thought to yourself, 'I could do a better job myself.'? Well, if you are feeling creative and have $1,300 laying around, famous fashion brand Fendi has released the Fendi Artist Baguette bag to satisfy your artistic cravings. I thought the logic behind DIY projects was to save money! Alas, it's a 'one of a kind' Fendi...

For the $1,300 you get a box of special Fendi Pantone markers and a plain white leather 'baguette style' bag, minus the signature logo pattern. Don't worry though, people will know it's Fendi thanks to the interlocking “F” magnetic closure on the front flap.

I like the concept of having your own design and all, but $1,300 for a plain white bag and some markers is way too much. Check out some of the resulting creative designs.
