The Peekaboo Bag: A Testament to the Multifaceted FENDI Woman
The FENDI woman contains multitudes. So does her Peekaboo.
Since 2008, the Peekaboo bag has become a hallmark expression of Roman craftsmanship fused with an intimate sense of FENDI womanhood. Designed by Silvia Venturini Fendi and premiered at the FENDI Women’s Spring/Summer 2009 show, the Peekaboo was a reaction – a design born of the will to redefine modern accessories in the waning years of ‘it-bag’ ubiquity.
Clean and minimal, geometric and curvilinear all at once, the Peekaboo is a bag engineered with both beauty and playful functionality at its core. Its original trapezium-shaped form took the spirit of a mid-century frame bag and transformed it into an architectural feat of contemporary leather artistry in the FENDI ateliers.
Marrying supple and rigid forms, gravity and structure, the Peekaboo is a shapeshifter. Centred around a double turnlock upper frame, the gusseted pocket construction and weighted keyhole hardware causes a suspended drape when open, creating the bag’s signature curved ‘smile’ that reveals its luxurious inner craftsmanship.
