FENDI GIVES THE PEEKABOO BAG A MAKEOVER WITH A NEW CAPSULE COLLECTION
WITH THEIR LATEST COLLECTION, THE LEGENDARY ITALIAN HOUSE SIMULTANEOUSLY HONORS AND REINVENTS ONE OF THEIR MOST ICONIC BAGS.
The now-legendary Fendi Peekaboo bag first hit runways in 2008 and rapidly rose through the handbag ranks, becoming an instant It-bag. Since then, it has been solidified as a classic and has remained a popular choice for those seeking a timeless and simply chic piece. Now, the longstanding Italian house is launching the Peekaboo Capsule Collection, a special signature selection celebrating and honoring the iconic shape created by Creative Director Silvia Venturini Fendi.
The collection, which pays homage to the house’s enduring commitment to craftsmanship, features an assortment of Peekaboo sizes including the Peekaboo ISeeU Medium, Peekaboo ISeeU Small, and Iconic Mini Peekaboo. All are realized in grained leather with handmade macro Selleria stitches, the larger cream-colored stitch inspired from the original Roman master saddlers’ techniques. For this capsule, Fendi selected four vibrant and classic colorways for their various Peekaboo styles: mimosa yellow, tulip red, cyan blue and truffle grey, with silver hardware.
On top of this, the staple bag is enhanced with bold accessories, including matching Nano Peekaboo charms and Strap You shoulder straps, both in natural canvas and embellished by a colored FF logo embroidery. Needless to say, with this collection, Fendi has found a way to both honor their house classic and elevate it. With novel, logo-emblazoned accessories and vibrant colors, the Milan-based house has adapted their signature bag to current trends. This collection is equal parts a celebration of the Peekaboo bag and a reinvention of it.
