Fendi Fall Winter 2009 Peek-A-Boo BagsThe Fendi Peek-A-Boo Bags is one of the best offerings that ever come out of 'veteran' Italian fashion house. I have raved about the Spring Summer 2009 season's Peek-A-Boo designs and colours. Now that Fall Winter 2009 is upon us, Fendi has breathe new life to this 'classic and yet quirky' bag with splashes of new colours and crafting it in new materials. More sombre tones of browns and blacks or even metallics are seen on these highly coveted arm candies.Without any frilly detailing, this elegant bag can work for a guy as well. Since the large version stands at a width of 40cm, it is possible to pass off as a man's soft 'briefcase' but in a more interesting format. The removeable shoulder strap also comes in handy to change the bag from formal to casual siutations.For Fall Winter 2009, I am drooling at the leather version in dark brown with lighter brown leather handle and trimmings. Wonder what surprise the lining might bring...perhaps some horse hair print? And if anyone wants a more striking colour (I mean the ladies only), a rouge red version is bound to set your outfit ablaze with attention:-PPeek-A-Boo...now you see it, now you don't:-) These bags do sell out fast from past online research. So get ready your credit cards once any of these cuties start to appear.
