Fendi, the luxury fashion house, is known for a number of iconic bags including the Baguette and Peekaboo. The brand’s success was largely catalyzed by late designer Karl Lagerfeld who put the brand on the map as a top fashion house. However, it was Silvia Venturini Fendi who made the biggest contribution to the brand with her re-imagination of two of the company’s most recognizable bags. Venturini is the granddaughter of Adele and Edoardo Fendi who founded the family business in 1925 on Rome’s Via del Plebiscito.
Venturini is credited with inventing the Baguette, a bag that was inspired by how Parisians slipped bread under their arms after a trip to the local bakery. The minimal trapezoidal shape, single detachable strap and effortless flap was an immediate hit – soon to be spotted on the arms of actresses, models and fashionistas all over the world. The bag has been reimagined over the years in various shapes and styles from polka dots designed by Damien Hirst to graffiti scribbled by Richard Prince and is now considered a fashion icon worthy of a place in any handbag hall of fame.
The bag has also been reimagined as the Peekaboo, a more structured and playful version that was first introduced in 2008. Like the Baguette, the Peekaboo has become an instant hit and is coveted by A-list celebrities, fashion VIPs and everyday women alike. Our curated collection of pre-owned fendi bags include both the classic and contemporary styles including a wide variety of sizes and colors.
