LONDON — Fendi has given new meaning to a coffee and baguette takeaway with a summer pop-up at Harrods known as #FendiPeekabooBar, a mix of luxury, street, Italian food and drink.
Two cafés, one on the ground floor and one on the fifth, offer FF-branded cappuccino and espresso, while a Baguette bar serves up different versions of the bag, some miniature, others with sequins and others that resemble the ones that Carrie Bradshaw carried in “Sex and the City.”
There’s a station for customizing mini Peekaboo bags, some in exotic skins, others in leather, with different handles, straps, cases and names. It is the first time that Fendi has offered customizable Peekaboos, and the brand said it will turn the bags around in two days.
Fendi’s new Peekaboo pop-up at Harrods.
Fendi partnered with the L.A.-based illustrator Joshua Vides to design the immersive space, which is located on Harrods’ ground floor, facing Brompton Road. Vides’ thick, black, Roy Lichtenstein-ish lines, some still dripping with paint, adorn the white walls and furniture.
In an interview, Vides said he looked to the Fendi archives and to Karl Lagerfeld’s sketches from the Seventies and Nineties to reimagine the space in his signature 2-D marker style.
