Jimmy Choo has really been on a roll, lately, and I don’t mean that in a good way. The label’s been churning out cheesy plastic purses at an astonishing rate, and this Union Jack version of the Candy is a sad addition to the line.
There’s nothing inherently wrong with the Union Jack. It was cool for mods and it was cool for punks, and it’s patriotic to boot. But here on the Candy clutch it just isn’t working. Jimmy Choo put leopard spots on the classic blue background and muddied up its crisp, traditional aesthetic. Bummer.
I sort of like the overall design of the Candy, but it really needs to be carefully handled. It’s an unusual bag, and when you add so many extra details, you just end up with a mishmash of styles that doesn’t work. The usually clean looking lines of the bag intersect with the pattern in an odd way and add further distraction from any design sensibility.
$795 isn’t bad for a Choo bag, but this is a pretty bad Choo bag. Skip it and save your pennies.
