DESIGNED to embody what it means to be a modern woman, the Fendi Peekaboo bag has become synonymous for both its must-have status and as a symbol of the House’s Roman craftsmanship. Continually evolving with the needs of its wearer and finding itself presented in new iterations each season, Silvia Venturini Fendi’s vision redefined a normal modern accessory into a girl’s best friend.
Designed with a clean and minimal vision, and incorporating simultaneously both geometric and curvilinear qualities, the Peekaboo’s functionality reigns just as loudly as its beauty. Inspired by the mid-century frame bag, the trapezium shape has been translated into contemporary leather by Fendi’s ateliers and been given a double turnlock upper frame, gusseted pocket construction and keyhole hardware that causes the famous suspended smile-like drape revealing the savoir-faire of Fendi’s ateliers.
Delving into the process of its creation, influencer and editor Bryan Boy visited the brand’s new factory in Capannucia, Italy to look into how the Peekaboo Interlace is made. Shining a light on Fendi’s steeped heritage in leather work, we are given a rare insight into the meticulous process of this revered handbag.
