Set up as a family business in 1920s Rome, Fendi has been producing leather goods for almost 100 years. During that time, the Italian brand has fashioned several iconic accessories that have shaped its global image. Two standout pieces being the timeless Baguette and Peekaboo bags.
The Peekaboo silhouette first swung its way onto the runway in 2008, part of Fendi’s SS09 collection. Split by a rigid partition but united by its defining twist lock, the classic Peekaboo shape has undergone many iterations. The classic is as coveted today as it was a decade ago, and versions that stay true to the iconic shape remain flagship pieces of Fendi’s menswear and womenswear offering. Modern takes on the Peekaboo include the black nylon edition, suitable for more performance-led fits, and the smaller X-Lite version.
The original It bag — the Fendi Baguette — got a welcome reboot this year. Since 1997, this accessory has captivated world fashion and inspired numerous lesser imitations. Offering the option to wear it as a belt bag, over the shoulder, or carried under the arm like its namesake, the Baguette’s beauty lies in its versatility. Beauty also lies in updated versions, like the silver nylon remaster.
