The confusion between Cognac and Chocolate Spy Bags

  1. Since I got my Cognac Spy bag, I've noticed a few things. When I'm indoors, the bag looks much darker. Once I'm outside in the sun, the bag looks exactly like I pictured Cognac would look like. In the shade it's darker again, bit I mean darker different (not like dark chocolate, but like milk chocolate). I know this happens with many bags when placed under different lighting conditions, but due to the discussions in this sub-forum regarding the confusion between Cognac and Chocolate (dark drown), I thought I'd post my pics of the bag under various lighting conditions to illustrate my point. For those trying to decide which brown they'd prefer, I think Cognac can offer a bit of both worlds (light and dark) for brown bag lovers. Don't fret too much if you find it difficult to locate a Chocolate Spy. The Cognac is just as good.

  2. Well, it's gorgeous no matter what light it's in.
    Thanks for showing the difference.
     
  3. And the baby spy is in chocolate right?
     
  4. :yes:
     
  5. Wow! What a gorgeous bag. Thanks so much for sharing those pics-- I was actually thinking about how Cognac might show up in different lighting... You read my mind! :p
     
  6. I can never decide....:crybaby:

    :rochard:I'm not REDUNDANT! Just CONSISTENT! :wlae:
     
  7. wow i never realize how much darker the chocolate is i love it!
     
  8. R - that chocolate spy is 2007, so shiny & really dark (the finish has changed this year). I like it...sort of like a black purse with a bit of different color....very neutral with a splash :nuts:
     
  9. uhhhhhhhhhh so not that I mean to be annoying, but just to clarify, is the brown on the zucca/nappa spys chocolate or some other color? I had wondered that but it doesn't look like from the pictures I've seen of chocolate and my zucca in real life. lol sorry..:shame:
     
  10. PS- I never liked the cognac before but recently started to, this isn't helping.
     
  11. Hey Baglady have you managed to sold your Fendi spy bag Black?:smile: I been wanting one for ages,right now have to save to get one,but i really fell in love with your black spy and wished i could afford it any colour,choclate looks yummy too.
     
  12. It's dark brown (chocolate). The colors are stated on the authenticity cards and my two spys have different names- cognac for the cognac spy (duh) and moro for the leather on the zucca/leather baby spy.

    I have to say I like cognac much better than dark brown. Good luck on your choice. You really can't go wrong since the spy is a great design.
     
  13. ^^ Oh I know that chocolate is the darker one, I was just wondering if the brown on the zucca/nappa was chocolate or some other shade that doesn't exist in regular spys. I had been wondering that but then I read Lo14's post: And the baby spy is in chocolate right? and you nodded yes....so I'm assuming it is?:confused1:
     
  14. Knee hi -- yes it is...on auth cards its called "moro". On the 2006 & 2005 bags, the brown (chocolate) does not look as dark as my 2007 choco in the photo, I think the new finish coat Fendi is using now darkens it a bit...very pretty! :graucho:
     
  15. Your bags are delish ladies! :nuts:

    Me gonna join you Cognac lovers soon :graucho: shhhhhhh...
