Fendi unfolds the secrets of the Peekaboo bags
Fendi releases a new video exploring the Roman house’s craftmanship of Laser-Cut, Interlace and Intarsio, which are used to create new exciting looks for the iconic Fendi Peekaboo bag.
The story begins with Fendi’s headquarters at Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana, where the time-honoured architecture serves as a prelude to the savoir-faire to mirror the symmetrical and simplistic silhouettes of the new Peekaboo. The four protagonists are then revealed, each featuring Fendi’s beautiful takes on distinct materials and workmanship.

FENDI PEEKABOO BAG LASERCUT
To bring this Peekaboo X-Lite to life, a resin-treated leather is laser cut to achieve the FENDI script, finished with striped Pequin pattern and FF monogram-embossed suede pocket.
FENDI PEEKABOO BAG INLAY
The Intarsio (Inlay) Peekaboo bag brings together Fendi’s iconic Selleria Cuoio Romano leather, mink and fur.
On a base of hand-carved leather, the three materials are layered to create volume for the bag, where the first layer of leather and the mink on the outside will be sewn and joined by hand.
FENDI PEEKABOO BAG INTERLACE
The Interlace Peekaboo channels the most traditional workmanship. Leather stripes are braided into knots by hand and finalized with a maxi metal needle; isn’t it amazing how the handwoven leather put up the structural silhouette of Peekaboo?
