I’m hard on Jimmy Choo, but only because the company has such rich guarantee and tools that I have a tendency to carry it to a higher standard than I would a smaller label with much more limited ability to employ layout firepower. Occasionally, I get it.The Jimmy Choo Phebe Woven Leather Tote might not seem to be an innovative design achievement, and that’s because it’s not. What it is, however, is perhaps as near an ideal high-end summer bag because you can get. And perhaps that’s equally as great, if not better.We’ve spoken previously about the unpleasantness of laying down four characters for a straw bag, and it’s something that I just cannot bring myself to perform. It is not an issue of income, but one of principle — I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that those bags aren’t worth the exorbitant prices, and that I have to suspend disbelief to lose that kind of cash on leather. To get it done for straw is beyond the pale.What Choo has provided us here is the best of both worlds. This bag has the same breezy, lightweight, handmade (though it’s perhaps not) texture of a straw beach bag, but instead, it is stitched leather with a subtle shade variation plus some seriously cool manage attachments. I wish it were available in brighter colours, but if you like tan for spring, this really is a great bag to get the beach feel with luxurious materials. Just do not take it into the actual beach.
If you want to take a statement clutch bag with you on a very special occasion, Jimmy Choo’s Memento Cloud Crystal Box Clutch is the one to bring. Quoting from Disney Aladdin’s A Whole New World, this clutch bag is “shiny, shimmering and splendid” in all its angles.
We are not exaggerating and for sure your jaws dropped upon catching a glimpse of this dream IT clutch. The golden tiny beads paired with shimmering crystals is just too good to be true, but hey this is a real clutch! One might think that this would be the perfect accessory that Cinderella would bring to the ball that might probably catch the attention of the prince, aside from her glass slipper.
The cream of the crop and the icing to the cake is certainly its metal knot clasp feature which is covered and adorned in pure and clear crystals for that dreamy finish. We couldn’t just get over its beauty that we think it deserves its own pedestal in the fashion world.
Measuring 4′ x 6.5′ x 2.5′ inches (H x W x D), priced at €3350 euro via MyTheresa.
