THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO FENDI PEEKABOO LOOK ALIKES

THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO FENDI PEEKABOO LOOK ALIKES

The Fendi Peekaboo bag is an old classic that has kind of been forgotten about in the recent years. Retailer have pumped out many similar bags, such as the Dolce & Gabbana Sicily (here) and the Louis Vuitton Capucines (here), however the Fendi Peekaboo bag was the original ‘it’ bag with a single top handle. While I was reading about the design and history of how the bag came to be, I was of course curious to see if I could find some Fendi Peekaboo look alikes. Ad as you can see – my search was successful!

Anyhow, let’s delve a little deeper into the bag’s history and design, before looking at the Peekaboo dupes.

Fendi’s Peekaboo bag made it’s first appearance on Milan’s fashion week in 2008, and was an instant hit even before it launched in stores later on during S/S 2019. Silvia Fendi, the creative director of accessories for Fendi, remarks that there was a lot of word of mouth surrounding the bag after it’s runway premier – during those times, Fendi was most known for its monogram print bags that ultimately didn’t have an aura of mystery surrounding the bags.

The Peekaboo bag was Fendi’s answer to a look of subtle luxury – Fendi focused on using great leather and attention to detail as opposed to relying on monogram prints to sell their bags, and it worked. According to Silvia Fendi’s own words, “the bag marked a turning point in 2008 because, in a period of craziness for ‘it bags’, it was able to look on the inside of itself, highlighting the uniqueness of its artisanal working with bold choices and no limits when it came to fabrics.”

The bag eventually became so popular that it was launched in  four different sizes, and was even named the bag of the year by Vogue in 2015, long after it was released.

Although Peekaboo is a rather strange name for a bag, it’s essentially the most descriptive way to portray it. As you will be able to tell form the images, the bag has a sturdy single handle and a metal lock on the front.

When the bag is closed, the shape of it is rather structured and hard, and on the other hand when you open the lock, the front compartment of the bag falls down, reaveling what’s inside. This creates a more slouchy shape for the bag, which makes it very versatile – You can wear the bag in which ever way that you prefer, depending on the look that you are after!

‘Peekaboo’ is the perfect way to describe this bag, as the interior ‘peeks’ through once you open the first compartment of the bag.

 

The unique opening of the bag has allowed Fendi to play with its design even further – it’s released multiple versions of the bag, some which feature the classic Fendi Monogram and others, which include a more playful ‘Fendi monster’ print (here).

The customisation opportunities really are endless, as are the options of designing something that is limited edition. A few my favourites are the Kid’s Company limited edition bag and the British Flag limited edition bag – both of these are wearable for every day purposes, but fun at the same time!

As the design of the bag is very minimalistic and the style of the bag isn’t trademarked, it makes it rather easy for high street retailers to produce (legal) lookalikes of this bag. I’ve managed to find a few classic pieces in every day colors such as grey, tan and black when I was researching this post, but I’ve also come across these bags before either on the high street or Amazon without knowing that they were dupes of the Fendi Peekaboo.

Thus, I’m sure that Fendi dupes come in more more colors and I’ll add them to this list as I find more of them. So, if you’re looking for Fendi Peekaboo dupes in more colors (or just other dupes of different Fendi bags) keep this page bookmarked!

 

But, without further ado, let’s look at the best Fendi Peekaboo dupes out on the market this season.

So, there you have it – there were the best Fendi Peekaboo dupes that I could find online at the moment. Which one of these was your favourite? Personally, I prefer the classic black & burgundy bags, as I feel like I would get the most wear out of them. The classic dupe bags are also made of real leather, which in my opinion is a must when you’re buying bags. They aren’t cheap, I know, but they will last for years and you won’t need to baby them as much as cheaper alternatives.

However, if you are just looking for an inexpensive option to update your bag collection, the baby blue bag from Shein (here) is the best. Priced at only $20, it doesn’t really matter if the bag will last for years or not – it’s a great buy even for one season!

In any case, let me know which one of the iconic single top handle bags is most your style – Louis Vuitton ‘Capucines’, Dolce & Gabbana ‘Silicy’ or Fendi ‘Peekaboo’? I would really love to know!
