In this guide, we’ll teach you how to spot a fake Fendi Peekaboo bag. It works for all colorways and models.

How to spot fake Fendi Peekaboo

The handler is the most reliable indicator of a fake Fendi Peekaboo bag. Countefits often have a noticeably different arch compared to authentic ones.

1. Handler

Comparing real vs fake Fendi Peekaboo bags for their handlers
  • Authentic: Handler has a perfect arch.
  • Fake: Handler arches too high, making it appear taller than the authentic version.

Too difficult? Let our team of expert Fendi authenticators take a look at your bag:

2. Buckle

Comparing real vs fake Fendi Peekaboo bags for their buckles
  • Authentic: Deeply printed “FENDI” text on the golden buckle.
  • Fake: Thinner “FENDI” text, not as deeply imprinted.

3. Interior buckle

Comparing real vs fake Fendi Peekaboo bags for their buckle's interior
  • Authentic:
    • Larger screws on the sides of the inner metal plate.
    • The “MADE IN ITALY” text is thicker, smaller, and less defined.
  • Fake:
    • Smaller screws on the metal plate.
    • The “MADE IN ITALY” text is more defined, thinner, and larger in size.

A quick mention:

  • The steps we’ve written so far are the BEST ways to authenticate this item
  • The next few steps are still reliable methods…
  • … but they apply to non-top-versions of replicas available for this item

If in doubt, we recommend double-checking the steps we’ve explained above this line.

4. Stitching

Comparing real vs fake Fendi Peekaboo bags for their stitching
  • Authentic: Stitching on the bag is more noticeable, thicker, and larger in size.
  • Fake: Stitching appears to be thinner and smaller.

5. Interior label

Comparing real vs fake Fendi Peekaboo bags for their badges
  • Authentic: Corners of the inner metal logo are less curvy and more angled.
  • Fake: Corners of the metal logo inside are noticeably curvier.

6. Carbines

Comparing real vs fake Fendi Peekaboo bags for their carbines
  • Authentic:
    • The “FENDI” text is properly fit into the carbines and is centrally placed in relation to the carbine’s height.
  • Fake:
    • The “FENDI” text looks thinner and is poorly stamped.
    • There is a noticeable distance from the top of the carbine to the text, making it improperly aligned.

Shortlist: Verify your Fendi Pekaboo

  1. Examine the handler of your Fendi Peekaboo bag. Fake versions tend to have a taller and less curvy handler.
  2. Verify the buckle on your Fendi Peekaboo bag. Counterfeits often feature improperly stamped “FENDI” text that appears too thin.
  3. Inspect the interior side of the buckle of your Fendi bag. Fake inner plates typically have smaller screws and thinner “MADE IN ITALY” text compared to genuine bags.
  4. Analyze the stitching on your Fendi bag. Fake Fendi Peekaboo Monster bags tend to have thinner and smaller stitching.
  5. Check the inner tag of your Fendi bag. Counterfeit Fendi Peekaboo bags often have inner tag corners that are overly curvy.
  6. Examine the carbines of your Fendi Peekaboo. Fake versions may have “FENDI” text placed improperly on the carbines.
