Fendi Large Leather Peek-a-Boo Tote In White
One of the most unusual and note-worthy bags to come out of the Spring Summer 2009 season is surprisingly from the house of Fendi. Usually churning out bag monstrosities, Fendi seem to hit the jackpot this time with the very chic Peek-a-Boo Leather Tote! I love the cute idea of being able to have a bit of bag voyeurism by show your bag contents. The simple lines and shape in a variety of sumptuous leathers (from exotics to fabric to calf leather) and colours also attribute to the bag being a bag to watch out for this season.
The large tote measuring 40cm across in width and 30cm in height is perfect for guys as well. The bag whether open or closed retains a great shape and with non frivolous detailing and it's what makes this bag being able to pass off as gender bending.
I would love to own one, especially in white colour! I tried on the white version in Bangkok's Fendi store, it looked very cool! The turn-lock closure is a joy to use. But it costs a hefy THB 88,000 (Approx. SGD $3800). I almost had my jaws dropped. Singapore Fendi store at Ngee Ann City sells this bag for about SGD $3400. So your best bet for the bag is www.net-a-porter, which you can get the most savings at approx SGD $2500. That is close to a SGD $1000 difference which you can redirect to other bag purchase or safekeep it in the bank:-) Net-a-porter's stock is however limited to a light grey colour for the large size, unlike the wide range of colours and materials to choose from at the boutiques. The bag looks like a soft briefcase/doctor's bag while not being too serious and conservative. Love the shoulder strap option which creates a whole new look again.
