Named after the popular game of hide and seek, this bag ranks with classics from the houses of Louis Vuitton and Dior. The Peekaboo launched with much hype and fanfare in 2009. Since then, the Peekaboo has stood the test of time and emerged (and re-emerged) as a Fendi cult favorite.
Unconventional and refreshing from anything else out there, this bag is one of a kind. After unclasping the lock, the bag opens to reveal a secret – a contrasting inner lining. Get it? Peekaboo! When closed, this handbag probably fits as much as you ever need to carry!
The Peekaboo checks all the boxes on style, quality, functionality, and versatility. Read on for detailed information about the specifics of the bag.
Fendi’s Peekaboo Bag initially launched in one standard style, now referred to as ‘Iconic Peekaboo’. In 2018, Fendi reinvented the Iconic and launched a lighter version called the ‘Peekaboo X-Lite’. This was achieved by doing away with heavy leathers and zippers and sticking to calfskin and lighter fabrics instead. Additionally, eliminating the inner middle frame of the bag helped reduce the bag’s weight. As a result, the bag took on a relaxed, more casual look. The clasp also was upgraded to a modern, aerodynamic diamond cut design.
Both styles are distinctly different but equally popular.
A stiff partition in the Iconic Peekaboo bag divides the bag into two sections. However, only one side of the inner partition (the side meant to face outwards), is adorned with eye-catching fabric or leather and a chunky zipper pocket. In addition to a sturdy single handle, these bags also come with an adjustable shoulder strap for cross body use. The large size, however, comes with a short shoulder strap instead of a longer adjustable one.
Inspired by the Iconic Peekaboo, the X-Lite model is a crossover between a tote and a Peekaboo. With a single twist clasp (versus the two clasps on the iconic Peekaboo), when opened also reveals an eye-catching interior, albeit with a few alterations. Absence of an inner partition inside the bag helps reduce its weight and an inner flap pocket replaces the inside zipper pocket. The medium size Peekaboo X-Lite comes with a single handle and a shoulder length strap while the large size has only a single handle.
The Iconic Peekaboo comes in three sizes while the X-lite, keeping in line with its tote sensibilities, comes in a medium and a large size only.
|Fendi Peekaboo Style||Dimensions in inches (L X H X D)|
|Iconic Peekaboo Mini||9.1 x 7.1 x 4.3|
|Iconic Peekaboo Medium||13 x 10.2 X 4.7|
|Iconic Peekaboo Large||15.7 x 11.8 X 5.9|
|Peekaboo X-Lite Medium||11.8 x 9.8 X 5.9|
|Peekaboo X-Lite Large||16.9 x 12.6 X 5.5|
Options for exotic leather Iconic Peekaboo bags are a plenty. Be it crocodile, python, ostrich or lizard, exotic skin Peekaboo bags are fairly easily available. For standard leather fabrication, the exterior leather generally is calfskin, with lambskin inside. The material used on the outer facing inner separator varies from model to model including fabric with signature Fendi motifs or even sequins!
Understated and elegant, Iconic Peekaboo bags typically come in muted pastel shades with smooth non-patterned interiors. On the contrary, the X-Lite range features solid dark colors, with a variety of patterns for the inner lining. With a splattering of bright options in every collection, there is something to suit a variety of preferences.
