Fendi Limited Edition Embroidered Spy Satchel: Trash or Treasure?


It's time once again to analyze the strange world of limited edition handbags. The reason I use the word strange is because, quite frankly, it is. More often than not, limited edition bags are just plain ugly and egregiously overpriced. If you don't believe me, just look at the unexplainable hoopla over this erroneously marketed limited edition designer shopping bag (mercifully, it's cheap). I'm afraid one day I'll see a long line outside Saks reminiscent of the Cabbage Patch Kids craze during the 80s for a chance to buy a limited edition pile of #%@*, but I digress. Let's get to the bag in question today.

I bring you the Fendi Limited Edition Embroidered Spy Satchel. Made from an embroidered, azure/fuchsia/gold floral-patterned black fabric, this classic spy bag features the usual woven and knotted top handles in black patent leather, foldover flap closure with the hidden "spy" coin pocket, braided patent leather piping, and signature logo-lined interior with numbered fabric patch ensuring its' exclusivity. This is the smaller spy bag version measuring 14 x 8 x 4.

Now I'd like to here from you, ladies. I think my opinion on this one is quite evident, but at $4900 via Raffaello, is the Fendi LE Embroidered Spy Satchel trash or treasure?
