Fendi for Peekaboo
Queen Rania of Jordan was seen flaunting it at the World Economic Forum, and Monica Belluci and supermodel Natasha Poly created quite a stir at Cannes with Peekaboo, the latest arm candy from the house of Fendi. Available in Net, coated straw, suede or snakeskin, the bag is the first of it kind—where the inside is as expensive or maybe more expensive than the outside. Devoid of fancy decoration, the bags are left deliberately open. Designer Silvia Venturini Fendi thinks they’re strictly for those who see luxury as “personal pleasure”.
