You may recognize the famous Fendi Peekaboo bag after it first hit the runway in September 2008. The Peekaboo bag was for the Spring 2009 season, during a time when bags were more important than your choice of shoes, dress or jacket.

The “It” bag era was now ten years ago, and many bags from that time have fallen out of fashion or found themselves being auctioned off for the best prices online. Meanwhile, the Peekaboo has maintained its exclusive status and become a real collector’s item.

Fortunately for collectors, there is a multiple of choices to choose from when it comes to the Peekaboo. The variety of the bag includes the Large Peekaboo, Regular Peekaboo, Mini Peekaboo and Micro Peekaboo. Moreover, there is even a higher-end Peekaboo Essential and the newer Peekaboo Essentially, which is a smaller sized version of the Essential. Currently, the most expensive Peekaboo is the Fendi Gems Mini Peekaboo which comes in white croco, white gold, diamonds, rubies, and amethysts.
