The collaboration is part of Fendi's ambitious 'hand in hand' initiative to celebrate local artisans whose expert craft transforms the Baguette into a full-fledged objet d'art.
Weighing 5.2 pounds (2,356 grams), the piece is engraved with a floral pattern of lilies (the national flower of Italy) and roses (the official flower of New York State).
