Since the Peekaboo debuted on FENDI’s Spring/Summer 2009 runway, we’ve come to associate this playful yet contemporary style with the fashion house, as it strikes the perfect balance between sophistication, impeccable craftsmanship and an irreverent attitude. This is a bag with a “smile”, where its front panel can be left open to reveal a soft pink nappa leather lining.
FENDI gets even more creative with this season’s Autumn/Winter 2022 Peekaboo Capsule, which celebrates the different sizes and iterations of the icon. The timeless silhouette now features Selleria macro stitches, in contrasting colours that line the sides of the bags, while the handles are embellished with exotic leathers, in styles appropriate for both women and men.
The women’s series features the FENDI Peekaboo ISeeU in Medium, Small and Mini, crafted from soft grained leather in black, white and mint green, which best show off the oversized Selleria stitching detail and unique handles. In particular, the Selleria process involves using a special thicker waxed thread that then’s stitched by hand to form the bag.
An additional camel-toned version is done in full suede as well. For a dose of extra fun, the capsule includes three versions of the Micro Peekaboo in its most fun-sized yet, paired with python straps. All these still bear the bag’s distinct features of the twist-lock fastening and soft front panel.
The men have it just as good, with the Peekaboo ISeeU Medium and Mini dressed in asphalt and camel coloured Cuoio Romano leather, a natural leather exclusive to the house.
Keen-eyed collectors will notice subtle differences of a more angular silhouette for the men’s styles, while instead of contrast stitches, they’ve gone for more streamlined tone-on-tone choices instead, both in the hardware and the Selleria stitches. The unique detail of an exotic handle still remains though, while you’re free to complete the set with the O’Lock logo adjustable shoulder straps.
