Of course, Fendi makes the Peekaboo style in many different colors each season and 4 different sizes (large, regular, mini and micro). This one is the regular size. Unfortunately, among the regular sized Peekaboo bags, this one is priced highest. All the other colors I've seen are in the high 3000s or low 4000s. But I just had my heart set on this one! Sigh. But the whole inner compartment where the monster yellow eyes are is made of python so I guess that's more expensive. The rest of the bag is calf skin and it is super nice.
By the way, it is extremely hard for the bag to dip in the front like the photo above. I literally had to push it down and take a picture real fast lol. It looks more like this on its own:
But here's another reason I was more willing to shell out big dough for this bag - when it's closed up, the monster eyes are completely hidden and it just looks like a black, professional bag! I love the versatility. I could totally use this bag to go to an interview and no one would know there's monster eyes hidden inside... hehe.
When it's closed up, it looks exactly the same from the front or back:
Twist lock closure on both sides:
Here is what it looks like from the side when the front part is open:
It also comes with a removable shoulder strap:
You can adjust the length of the strap:
Here's the attachment hardware:
I love that the zipper pocket is red on the inside, and by the way, this is the only zipper pocket that the bag has:
Here's what the inside looks like on the back compartment - it's a very soft and velvety material instead of python on the front compartment:
Here are its legs =) :
Another thing that comes with the bag that I thought was super cute is the rain coat!
It even has a picture of the bag on it... adorbs!
Here's the bag wearing it lol:
So cute! I guess for that price, it better not get wet in the rain! Hahaha.
Lastly, here it is on me! I couldn't wait to use it already and went out to dinner with it. I think the size is perfect. I would actually struggle to keep it full on both front and back compartments.
I really love how subtle it is. It really lives up to its name! Like a monster in hiding lol. Before I got this bag, I was considering the blue version, but I'm glad I went with black in the end.
I have been just staring at it and petting it nonstop since I got it. It makes me happier than I even thought possible... lol! I know this is a splurge item, but that's what I call money well spent! =D
