Black Fendi Spy Bag The Fendi Spy Bag has been a longtime favorite here at Purse Blog. And by here at Purse Blog I mean with me. It was my first high-end designer handbag after starting Purse Blog and it was a major splurge. I cringed at the price tag, as I went from below the $1000/bag spending to over $2,000. I have a Honey Spy which I absolutely adore. The color is just right, the leather is smooshy, and the design I love. I am drawn to the Fendi Spy design as it is so entirely different from many other handbags. It is not a classic hobo, or tote, or satchel. It is truly its own shape. The handles are stunning, the hidden compartments are genius, I just love this bag! The Spy was huge a few years ago, it was one of the “it” bags. But is everyone over it now?

The Spy is one of the few Fendi handbags that truly had people going ga-ga. Wait lists piled up with people willing to shell out over $2,000 for a handbag. And a few years ago, not all handbags broke into the $2,000 range like they do today. Everyone HAD TO have their Spy bag, and Fendi caught on and released countless renditions of the Spy (mink, denim, beaded, jeweled, you name it!). But is the Spy fame over? After I saw this Black Fendi Spy Bag on Saks I thought how lonely it looked there. No “Sold Out” written underneath it. Just a hidden Spy bag looking rather lonely on the Saks website. Buy through Saks for $2,250.

What do you think about the Spy Bag: Love it or Leave it?

I think the Spy has entered iconic status, much like the speedy. It no longer has the hype of an “IT” bag, but instead has the long lasting endurance of a LV Speedy and will be around forever now.

i think the spy is beautiful even though i usually only buy bags that can go over the shoulder.

i agree with these ladies ^ that even though it’s not sold out it is still iconic and will be always

I honestly think the spy was an amazing iconic bag but I think they over did it. They released too many of them in such a short space of time. I think the hype that is created around a bag also has so much to do with marketing. If you make very few versions and pieces they will sell out easily and will make people want them more. Like Hermes’ supposed 6month waiting list… I think it just is clever marketing.

I would have to agree with Merve, it is an original and iconic bag but Fendi did overdo it. Releasing too many of them and in all sorts of different, sometimes even tacky, versions, decreasing its iconic stature.
