Jimmy Choo Ramona Studded Leather Bag: Trash Or Treasure?


I have mixed feelings about the Jimmy Choo Ramona Studded Leather Bag. To begin with, I love the 'Ramona'. It is by far one of my all-time favorite Jimmy Choo handbags, so I can't find fault with it in terms of overall design. This version attempts to interpret the 'rocker chic' trend that's all the rage this fall, but I can't help but feeling it falls short of what could've been quite a fabulous bag. The combination of black leather and gold studs should be nothing new to us, so why don't I like this bag? Are studs already boring me? I guess this brings me to what I don't like about the bag.

The fact they used studs on this bag is not the part I find puzzling. It's the decision to use them in a tiled, trinagle-shaped pattern that has me scratching my head. There is nothing triangular on this bag which might have explained this design choice. If you squint your eyes a bit, you could make the argument that the entire bag has a somewhat triangular silhouette, but that's not enough of a compelling reason to use these poor studs in such a manner. I can't get behind the uniformity of the pattern. Something more haphazard would've been far more appealing.

Disappointed is the best way to describe how I feel about the Jimmy Choo Ramona Studded Leather Bag. It also costs $3125, which is pretty outrageous for a design gone wrong. I'd love to hear what your thoughts are about this bag. Did they nail the 'rocker chic' trend, or did they miss the mark by a mile? Is the Ramona Studded Leather Bag trash or treasure?
