The Olde Apothecary

IT TAKES A BIG EYE FOR DETAIL (AND FINE FINGERS) TO ADMIRE FENDI'S MINIATURIZED BAGUETTE AND PEEKABOO BAGS. IT TAKES ELEGANCE, FROM CENTURIES PAST, WHEN NOBLEWOMEN WOULD WEAR FRAGANT POMANDERS ATTACHED TO THEIR ACCESSORIES AS PROTECTION AGAINST THE PLAGUE. MORE THAN JUST ICONIC MINIATURES, THE MICRO BAGS RESEMBLE TALISMANS CAMOUFLAGED AS FASHION.

A little petting is all it takes to activate the magical properties of the Micro Peekaboo, here featured in inlaid mink fur.

The secret is to keep the skeleton key in sight, rather than inside a vase. The Micro Baguette in black nappa leather is a discrete treasure chest, and a tempting addition to the classic version of the Peekaboo bag, here featured in patent suede with a descending degrade shade.

Nothing beats the fading pages of an old book when it comes to keeping a magical formula safe. The animated coral Micro Baguette adorned by fox fur details stands sentinel, hanging from a calfskin Peekaboo bag immersed in a blooming sea of orchids.

The spider always hides in the centre of her web. On this occasion she’s probably somewhere between the peach Micro Peekaboo, beaded with crystal flowers, and the celestial By the Way calfskin bag.
