The Tale of Fendi Peekaboo

The Tale of Fendi Peekaboo

First launched on a runway in September 2008 and debuted in stores in Spring 2009, yet it stays on trend up to now. The name Peekaboo is derived from the quirky design - when you pull down a front flap, it reveals its bag lining, and when you let the clasp open, it gives a little peek of the interior with a tiny Fendi logo - in a very clever way of showcasing the brand’s playful image. Peekaboo was created by Silvia Venturini Fendi, the granddaughter of Adele, the founder of Fendi. It is timeless and sophisticated and transcends time, passed from generation to generation, binding the family’s past, present, and future.




"Peekaboo" says Fendi without screaming logo on it. The design of Peekaboo is sleek, unique, and a modern vision of a classic bag. It is a symbol of the brand's incredible craftsmanship and beyond creativity. It is functional and flexible; it has a top handle so you can either hand-carry or hook it to your arm. It also comes with an adjustable and detachable shoulder strap that makes it flexible, it can be worn on the shoulder or crossbody.
Are you curious how Peekaboo bags are being made? Every artisan has their own unique workstation where they are assigned one step at a time. Some of them do stitching, some are in hardware assembly, some on the different panels. There are so many steps in creating a bag.

It all starts with carefully choosing luxurious Italian leather and adorning it with exquisite details, making it a true statement piece. Following that, the leather is manually cut by hand with utmost attention paid to selecting the best spot to cut the quadrant and avoiding anything with defects. The next step after cutting is making holes as a guide for pristine stitching on various parts of the bag. The special seam used is called "Selleria" and is hand-woven by the artisan to perfection. The most delicate part is painting the edges with extreme precision, making sure not to stain the leather. Before we have the final result, the artisan will assemble the hardware by fastening it using screws. The final step is attaching the handle perfectly, mounted in its specific spot from one side to the other. Ensuring the turn lock and buttons are working perfectly, this is truly a state-of-the-art process that requires talent, skill, dedication, and full attention to detail. It is an emblem of craftsmanship and creativity.

Over the years, Fendi has created many versions inspired by various themes, made with the finest leather and notable details, combining elegance and casualness. If you are planning to buy one, here are the sizes and the four major variations you should be eyeing for.

First, the Peekaboo Iconic, it is the original design from 2009, the staple of Fendi featuring the recognizable “peek” factor. The right combination of casual and classy that makes the bag outstanding.


Second, the Peekaboo ISeeU is the latest design, with a narrow opening but doesn't show the Peekaboo smile when unlocked. It is heavier due to having more hardware and structure than the Iconic. It is sturdy, so you will not have to worry about it losing its shape easily.


Third, the Peekaboo X-Lite effortlessly blends elegance and practicality in a relaxed structure. It has less hardware, a single twist lock, no center partition, and comes with a shoulder strap, making it very convenient for carrying your everyday essentials.



Fourth, the Peekaboo Iconic Essentially is a combination of the Iconic bag with a classic look, featuring a partition at the center and twist locks on both front and back. Despite its light weight like the Xlite, it remains both aesthetic and functional, with modern touches like side tabs that are integrated on both front and back leather panels.

No wonder why Peekaboo is one of the most coveted bags of Fendi, it goes beyond design, the bag that’s been considered classic and will stay in our history forever.
