Jimmy Choo's sophisticated designs have defined urban fashion for a decade, which is why I find it somewhat confusing when he adopts arsty-craftsy techniques and materials like woven raffia. But, Choo brings his own unique sense of refinement to everyday materials in bags like this Bali hobo, and the results are beautiful.
This pale, bleached raffia isn't your everyday basket material. It's also been softened up considerably, and has the flexibility of a more supple material. The black leather trim further adds to the bag's sophisticated aesthetic, and makes it seem a little bit warmer, which I like, since I usually find woven bags to be a bit too light to transfer over into the colder months.
The raffia gives this hobo shape structure, and makes it seem less casual. I love the leather wrapping that reinforces the handle; it not only looks great, but it's also a practical and comfortable touch. The flap and buckle closure has a small, beautiful turnlock clasp, and the slim strap decorations on the sides add a touch of rocker charm.
At $995, the Bali is extremely well-priced for the Choo line, especially for a versatile bag that will take you through several seasons.
