The Fendi Peekaboo Tote is getting to that point in its design life cycle where people start impatiently tapping their feet, awaiting the next thing from the brand. Spring 2011 holds a few options, but until those come to retail, this pink iteration of the popular Peekaboo might just be enough to hold your attention. I just have one question, though – what is this bag actually made of?

Bergdorf Goodman’s description lists the bag’s materials as goat and calf skin, but makes no mention of embossing of any sort. When I first looked at the bag, I assumed that I was looking at watersnake or lizard of some sort, since those two materials are generally the sort of thing that create the texture you see above. And then there’s the small matter of price: this Peekaboo costs $700 more than the goat and calf Peekaboo of the same size at Saks, which has no embossing and actually appears to be made of the aforementioned leathers. Bergdorf also stipulates that this bag cannot be shipped to Canada, although Fendi’s regular leather bags have no such stipulation that I can find on the company’s website.

So, I see two distinct possibilities: either Bergdorf’s has the material identifications wrong, or Fendi would like its customers to pay $700 for some embossing and a bright color. For the sake of my sanity and the luxury business as a whole, I hope it’s the former. Buy through Bergdorf Goodman for $3250.

    Fendi introduced another amazing tote and the color is just amazing. Just the price :(. Hope it will go on sale one day. LOL

  • Bir

    Hmmm I like it very nice and very well built

  • Vitta

    Confusing. The material looks like snake-embossed leather, but then why is it patched from panels? This is usually the way genuine snakeskins are presented. And the color is a bit too strong for me. Not my cup of tea.

    The black Peekaboo Tote is on my “must have when in funds” list for serious, well-structured (alebit slightly boring but will suit my Austrian board’s sensibilities) type of work bag. And then I see this in pink (lizard ???) and I am torn, very torn. This will never fly in Vienna but I love it.

  • Constance

    ummmm I haven’t made up my mind about this purse yet. I’ll have to give it a little more thought, before I decide whether I like it or not. :0/

  • Blo0ondi

    hmmm well it looks nice but i think i should own one of fendi’s classics first!!

  • gacats

    I think the color and texture is at war with the structure of the bag.
    It seems schizophrenic to me.

  • Stylista

    Oh wow! I really really love this colour. I think the texture is great, but the bag looks a bit stiff. I prefer it in leather.

  • XXAL

    the texture reminds me of those magnetic drawing boards! (like etch-a-sketch)

    i like it!!!.. but how is it going to be peek-a-boo if the material is so stiff?

  • Maria

    What a beautiful color. So pretty.

  • Vasaki

    wow………….I already love her……<3

  • mochababe73

    I love the color, but it’s probably a little too stiff for me. I like for my bags to have some give but not completely unstructured.

  • Demi

    I love everything about this bag! The colour is amazing – I love it when I see classic bags in bright colours! It’s classy and fashionable at the same time! I just adore it!

    Just got the answer from BG. It is made from goat and calf. The reason it can’t ship to Canada is goat skin is not allowed.
    It’s weird because it really does look like python on the interior but I guess it’s just embossed.
