Come on boys! The latest member in Fendi’s men’s Peekaboo family is the Peekaboo ISeeU XCross bag and its cut with the pleasure-seeking sensibilities of an East Coast skater in summer, perfect for everyday essentials. Initially revealed at the maison’s SS23 menswear show, clutched in models’ fists as they marched through the sky blue space decked out in frayed, bohemian denim co-ords, long leather shirts, low-slung dungarees and unfussy suiting, the Fendi boys and their bags were sporting a California kind of cool.
Arriving in a playful punch of colours that reflect the earth, sea and sky, the smart and minimal satchel is crafted using Cuoio Romano leather – a signature of the men’s Peekaboo line – in vivid green, intense blue and dazzling orange hues, as well as jet black, cow print, asphalt grey and navy. There’s a canvas version too, swathed in Fendi’s ‘FF’ monogram and trimmed with a black, croc-effect leather for easy breezy living. Highlighting the body of the bag, it’s subtly padded and overflowing with attitude. Fitted with an adjustable and detachable crossbody fabric strap inscribed with bold Fendi lettering for versatility, it balances innovation with tradition. With compact proportions, its slim, sporty silhouette is cut to carry your phone, cash, cards, keys, and whatever other bric-a-brac you might need to get through the day. Thanks to two practical compartments and an inner cardholder, it’s perfect for the everyday man in flux as he travels between the pub and the club on the night bus after a drawn-out day doing business or even chilling with their mates in the park over a few tinnies. Nothing is better for zhushing up an everyday fit.
If you’re after a bit of surplus fun though, a mini Fendi Baguette, the Clouds sliders and the bucket bag of the SS23 collection become lucky little charms that can then be hooked onto the bag’s lustrous palladium hardware for just a touch of high jinx.
