Does Fendi Have The Most Adorable Names For Their Bags Or What?
The Peekaboo and Strap You were our travel companions recently in Hong Kong. See what we mean about the names? In collaboration with Fendi.| August 9, 2017
Fendi may be almost a century old, but it has zero plans to look that way. The century-old knowledge is in the craftsmanship and technical expertise, but everything else is young, young, young. Take the recent Fall ’17 collection we saw in Milan, for instance. It was sexy, youthful, sporty and street, but still so polished. Then, there’s the ridiculously adorable Fendirumi and Bag Bugs that people have been snapping up since their release a couple of years ago. Finally, the bags with the gosh dang quirky names. The Kan I, Peekaboo, 2Jours, Dotcom and even the classic Baguette. Shrink them down to micro sizes and you just can’t help squealing.
We were recently in Hong Kong to attend the insane “F Is For…Fendi” party and we had the Peekaboo travelling with us the whole time. It may have been the Mini Peekaboo, but we could fit a lot in there. At least two wallets, two phones, a portable battery charger, a lipstick and lip balm. Also, you know how you tend to leave your bag open against the wishes of mother dearest and many concerned passers-by? The Peekaboo is intended to be exactly that way, showing just a little peek of the inside. Unbuckle if you wish and as you please.
Another fun and quirky thing about the Peekaboo is the plethora of styling options. Enter the Strap You, Fendi’s collection of bag straps – from minimal and monogrammed to embellished and embroidered – that you can easily strap on to your bag of the moment. Because we love the idea of a house logo being used as a design, we went with a bold yet classy one with the iconic double F repeating throughout. (Though, giving the bag’s neutral colour, any Strap You would have worked.)
The Peekaboo is a Fendi icon and signature. Stick around as we delve into yet another bag in the weeks to come, one that heralds a new era of accessories in Fendi’s history. Any guesses which one we’re referring to?
