While most twitteratis were quick to fashion police the delicious looking bag and it’s manufacturers, quite a few even appreciated it.

Posting a picture of the Baguette clutch, a user tweeted, “Just when 2020 was going from bad to worse, Moschino turned it around with a statement item everyone’s always wanted in their wardrobe.. A baguette bag (sic)”.

Another tweet, a metaphorical one this time, read, “I decided to treat myself to a new Moschino’s baguette clutch bag but half way home got bit hungry (sic)”.

While another user took a dig at its steep price tag, “Shall I pay for rent or my moschino baguette clutch this month? (sic)” and, “£758 to look like you’re holding a subway? is this a joke (sic),” tweeted another.
