Fendi Fellas

  1. To the guys (or maybe girls) in here, I just searched in FB for a group for Man's peekaboos owners and didn't find anything.

    Hoping any of you guys are interested in sharing your Men's peekaboos here, and perhaps also make a group in FB for the same purpose?

    If you're interested, think it's a good idea or have a better one, please post!

  2. Great idea!

    I'll take pictures of my Peekaboo when I use it next and post here.

  4. So, since I'm the instigator, I thought maybe I should show my cards first, here are some pics with my beloved new sidekick, this is actually my biggest luxe purchase (so far) and I couldn't be happier, hope you guys like them, I tried to do the instagram embedding thing, but turns out it doesn't work here, so here are the pics, let me know what you think! (I added a bonus one, not posted anywhere, as an exclusive, a close up of branding details ;) ) IMG_3328.jpg

  5. Beautiful peekaboo! I love the colour and the contrast straps! :smile:
     
  6. Thank you, I'm envying your alligator peekaboo, and that LV strap is life!!

  7. Great pics! I love the colour combination. Keep the pics coming!

    My Peekaboo is my biggest bag purchase (I've only spent more on a watch), and I love it to pieces! I'll post some soon of mine.
     
  8. I just took some pics of my Peekaboo and what I have paired it with so far. I got the LV Racetrack Moccasins just to match the bag (didn't have black casual shoes in grained leather with silver hardware to match the Peekaboo before). The Dior Homme charm is reversible with a mirrored side, and also a logo-embossed side.

    The drivers are lovely! And also, I wasn't aware of the existence of that Dior hangtag, well, I must confess since in my city there's no Dior boutique, I steer clear of even going to the website, I just couldn't handle teasing myself and also torturing me, haha.

    Let's keep the pics coming!!!! I'm happy to report that, since I got my peekaboo last month, the front panel is giving away, which means... I'm now actually starting to use it with the front panel open!!! (for me I wanted the panel to give in inwards, so the inner suede wouldn't be exposed, dust can easily get there and mess the lining up). I'll be posting pics of this styling soon, if everything goes well I'll be getting my bag bug (aka Peluso) a brother from Prada, and also If I'm lucky enough perhaps I'll get an LV tassel, but since the blanc gamma I'm guessing is really sought after, let's see if the local boutique SAs can work their magic.
     
  10. Thank you very much! The Dior hangtag was not originally a bag charm. It belongs to a Dior Homme long and large necklace with a waxed cord. I hardly used the necklace, but then I had the idea of turning it into a charm. The metal chain closure to which it is attached is actually from a limited edition Dior mirror for women (called the Dior Sparkling).

    The leather on mine hasn't softened much. I had to soften the front myself by weighing the front down over two nights so that it would drop down outwards (which exposes the suede but I think it's the way Fendi intended it to look so I don't mind), and I'm hoping that it will soften even more over time so it can drop lower. I'll show pics next time with the front dropped down.

    I can't wait to see more pics of yours. You're tempting me to get another Peekaboo but in a different colour than black.

    I think that's the whole point about peekaboos, the contrasting colors, and hey, if you have the budget go ahead! I can't say that I can make a peekaboo collection nor I intend to (at least not at the moment, haha), there are these really beautiful shades and combinations, one that really catched my eye is this one: https://www.fendi.com/ii/man/bags/p-7VA388E21F07QY

    The interior I think is the exact same color as the outside color of mine (military green) and the outside green of that one they call it "Amazon green", from the looks of the pictures the outside color is vibrant but not that much and extremely saturated, or maybe this beauty with Qbic studs (which is not color block) which is also the same color as mine (just in case you didn't figure it out yet, I have a thing for military green/khaki color): https://www.fendi.com/jp-en/man/bags/p-7VA388SH7F06Y6

    Anyways, so many gorgeous options (as equally or more expensive O_O).

    I'm gonna step out of the subject but, I'm incorrigible! I don't even have 3 months with my peekaboo and I already set my eyes on this one (but since in the entire country there's not an actual boutique of the brand, the only thing there are is brand corners but owned by the department store in which they're in perhaps I won't be able to get it, but I'm already working with some SAs to locate it, haha): http://www.loewe.com/usa/en/men/bags/puzzle-xl-bag/32230UUM46-8890.html?cgid=m_bags#start=1

    But yeah, I'll keep the pics coming, and I want to see your peekaboo/drivers in action too!

  12. Oh, just forgot, and also since you mentioned that you used something that wasn't specifically a hangtag as a charm, if you look closely on the third pic I posted (the one with the baby blue blazer) the long "charm" that is hanging is not even something that is supposed to be hangable, it was an appliqué that came with a pair of trousers I got, and since that appliqué gave the pants a really off vibe (or at least one that didn't match my style) I took it off and modified it so I could use it as a bracelet, but then it hit me that perhaps I could use it differently as a long hanging charm, here's a close up of the bracelet/charm in charm configuration:

    BTW, I took a look at your pics again and noticed the "watermark", great idea, I watermarked mine too, that's my instagram handler (sorry about the second pic's definition, front facing iphone camera).
     
  13. I definitely don't have the means to collect Peekaboo bags, but it is my favourite bag and I wouldn't mind one in some iteration of blue with grey or something. I don't have any blue bags and the Peekaboo would be a good choice for me to get in blue, like the one below from Ssense with two tones of blue that can easily be matched with other accessories. I have to wait for it to get a markdown if possible because I can't justify getting another one otherwise.

    Here's a pic I shared recently on the forum with the Peekaboo and the LV loafers:

    The Loewe bag that you posted has some seriously good colour-blocking.
     
  14. Very creative! I like it! Wouldn't have thought it came from an appliqué from trousers.

    I watermark my pictures to prevent people from using them to sell a bag that they don't have (or to sell a fake using pictures of an authentic bag). I used to sell on eBay and I didn't watermark my photos before. Someone took pictures of a bag that I had sold and listed the bag as if they owned it. I reported it to eBay and they removed it, but what if I didn't see that auction? Someone may have been scammed into paying for a fake, or no bag at all.
     
  15. That's a very interesting combo of blues on that peekaboo, and yeah, I hear you, I think I waited like a year for a pair of color block Fendi shoes from the department store in which I mostly do my shopping (outside the online shopping I do).

    The trick is to be patient and, if you're lucky and, well, if destiny decides it is for you, you'll surely get, really hope you do, I'd like to see how you make it work into your outfits, and btw, your outfit, on point! Too bad the pic is a little blurry and the details of the drivers and other accessories you carry are not that defined.
