Here's everything you need to know about the brand's iconic bag.

Fendi was in the spotlight in 2021 for their epic collaborations and fierce, cosmopolitan designs. Notably, the Fendace collab brought to the forefront metallic slip dresses embellished with the distinctive F-monograms, and stylish gold chokers. It was the talk of the town, and whether you adored their designs or not, you have to agree that Fendi knows how to make their presence known. 

The fashion house has established a balance of sophisticated yet zesty style, which translates to their staple bag: The Peekaboo. It was introduced in 2009, yet stays on-trend up to today. Its elegant, understated structure makes it quintessentially Fendi. Thanks to its simple composition, the bag is versatile and can take on maximalist designs for the bold, and minimal, chic designs for lovers of subtle style.

As they take on new collections with a renewed level of dynamism, Fendi has tapped the prominent Korean actress Song Hye Kyo as an ambassador. As she is known for playing independent, strong yet graceful characters, we can definitely say that the ambassadorship position is a walk in the park for Hye Kyo. She stars in a new k-drama entitled Now We’re Breaking Up, in which she plays a headstrong fashion designer, whose wardrobe includes key Fendi pieces. If you watch the series, you’ll get a peek (pun intended) at the stylish Peekaboo bags her character sports.

Here's Everything You Need to Know About the Fendi Peekaboo Bag

What is the Fendi Peekaboo?

When you leave the clasp open, it creates a dip that gives a little peek of the interior—a subtle yet clever visual representation of the house’s playful personality. While the sleek, understated trapezoid structure offers a chic look, it also compliments the design of the clasp, which appears on either side of the bag. They bag is cleanly finished with intricate stitching, precise edges, and luxurious craftsmanship overall.
