FENDI Launches New #FendiPeekaboo Video starring Naomi Watts
The new video, called ‘Wild Untamed Naomi’ is a vignette of a private moment in Naomi Watt’s day within her apartment in New York, documenting her hidden and surprising side, accompanied by the FENDI Peekaboo ISeeU bag.
What starts as an average and restless day becomes untamed as Naomi escapes into her own world and discovers the joy of releasing stress and anxiety through a cathartic release of movement, unleashing her inner, wilder, and unseen side. With the help of her FENDI Peekaboo ISeeU bags, Naomi will seek out the extraordinary in the ordinary.
‘I love the colours! And it is a classic shape that’s very functional, whether you’re travelling with it or just using it as a day to-day bag. It just works.’ said Naomi Watts about the FENDI Peekaboo bag.
