If there is one bag that has made a powerful comeback, it has to be the Fendi Peekaboo. Experiencing an epic renaissance a couple of years after its debut in 2009, the Peekaboo has sashayed in and out, then back again into the fashion world. Displaying a fresh, fun and updated spin to its sleek aesthetic, the Peekaboo has proven itself to be an iconic mainstay collection.
Peekaboo – an apt name that epitomises the bag’s quiet subtleties and tender reveal of its precious, unsuspecting, and sometimes surprising interior; the many variations of this bag have become the perfect complement to a simple, minimalistic outfit or even the loudest and boldest of getups.
Meant to be carried with its clasp undone to unveil its contrasting interior, the Peekaboo is now an instant cult favourite that has garnered much clout. Here are four ways that celebrities have styled it!
Who she is: Helena Bordon
Her day job: Socialite, Fashion Blogger and Co-Founder of high street fashion chain store 284 in Brazil How she styled it: Don’t mistake this Brazilian beauty for your average girl-next-door. This prolific style blogger possesses an outstanding portfolio (having interned at Valentino), has an exponential fan base and a very individualistic yet tasteful style to boot. Helena is seen here sporting a boho-chic look with her printed and high-neck ruffled-collar blouse, that ABBA-blonde wavy hairdo, rounded sunnies and of course, the mini Peekaboo with a Karlito charm no less. Helena’s style? An explosive kaleidoscope of colours at its best. Look 2 Who she is: Leighton Meester
Her day job: Actress and Singer
How she styled it: She’s terrorized half of the Upper East Side, but if there is one thing that Blair Waldorf does right, it’s nailing the preppy look to a tee. Leighton’s role on Gossip Girl not only landed her the title of an A-lister, but also on the fashion radar of trend-spotters. Here, Leighton is seen on set of the TV show in her preppy getup of rich, fall hues. What better way to top it off than with a mustard Peekaboo?
Who she is: Ashley Tisdale
Her day job: Actress, Singer and Producer How she styled it: This Disney Channel star, best known for her role on High School Musical has multiple entertainment endeavours under her belt. As seen walking out of a mall with her tough, grunge outfit and the large Peekaboo in tow, Ashley’s darkly romantic outfit is perfectly complemented by the clean lines of the Peekaboo.
Who she is: Alexandra Peirce
