If you’re anything like us, you’re obsessed with And Just Like That, the next chapter in the Sex and the City story.
The series, which follows Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte as they’re navigating love and life in their fifties, features many callbacks from the original SATC era – and episode three was no exception.
Fans noticed that the recently bereaved Carrie Bradshaw was clutching her legendary purple sequinned Fendi baguette in And Just Like That.
Bag lady Bradshaw has always been a Fendi fan, but this bag, which had popped up in the series before, shouldn’t have been in her possession.
Fans of the original Sex and the City TV series will remember that Carrie had her aforementioned fave Fendi stolen while out shopping on Jersey Street in Soho, in series three episode, What Goes Around Comes Around.
When the mugger demanded Carrie gave him her bag, she said the legendary line: “Actually, it’s a baguette.”
While we were told that Carrie’s very expensive bag is in a consignment store in the Bronx, it appears that the writers either forgot Carrie’s bag was stolen, or that she was somehow reunited with her Fendi.
Either way, fans were thrilled to see the gorgeous purple baguette back where it belongs – on Carrie’s arm.
After spotting Carrie brandishing the bag in the new episode of And Just Like That, fans quickly took to Twitter to celebrate the bag returning.
“Glad to see the stolen purple Fendi baguette was retrieved, Carrie,” wrote one person, adding a cry-laughing emoji.
“Carrie slaying with her purple sequin Fendi baguette again,” noted a second. “Omg I manifested that.”
A third agreed it was emotional: “Carrie going back to her old apartment with the Fendi baguette that was stolen. I'm cry.[sic].
And a fourth said: “THAT purple sequin Fendi baguette is back! Carrie’s home.”
The original bag was released in Fendi’s Fall/Winter 1999-2000 collection, and caused a stir when released – searches for the bag rocketed over 1011 per cent after it first appeared on screen.
In a true nod to her iconic character, Sarah Jessica Parker starred in an advert, which you can watch below.
Now, the baguette been re-released to coincide with the launch of And Just Like That for the princely sum of $4,300 (or £2,980 if you’re UK based).
And Just Like That, we’re totally broke.
And Just Like That continues Thursdays on Sky Comedy and Now.
