The Jimmy Choo label is the unofficial prince of posh urban style. It has sort of a pared down bohemian aesthetic that works well for more conservative women. This Rosalie bag, unfortunately, looks too much like the iconic Hermes Birkin for me to think it's very interesting.
The soft brown leather on the Rosalie is well chosen. It's pale, versatile, and has a very subtle texture. The gold hardware keeps the look warm and understated, and the tonal straps and plackets are minimal and sleek.
Unfortunately, the shape is so much like the Birkin's that I just can't help comparing them. There's nothing wrong with that, I guess, except that Jimmy Choo is such a prominent label on its own that it doesn't really need to rip off other people's designs. The other thing is that the Rosalie lacks the streamlined simplicity of the Birkin. All the grommets and details make it just a bit less balanced.
At $1,495, the Rosalie is significantly less expensive than the Birkin, so if you're looking for a cheaper alternative, it's definitely an option. But, really, why not just save up for the real thing? At least you know it will retain its resale value.
