We’ll be doing the requisite rundown of all of Fall 2011′s accessories trends over the next few weeks, but when I saw the Jimmy Choo Saba Python Hobo Bag, I just couldn’t help myself. Mixing textures and python are both very important for this year’s looks, and this bag combines both of them in a very wearable, functional tote.

I’ve felt more positive about Jimmy Choo’s designs for Spring 2011 than I have about the company’s handbags in what seems like quite a while, and this bag in particular is an example of what Choo tends to do right. It has a note of bohemia without being outright hippie-dippy, and the metallic finish on the python adds an extremely luxurious touch. The deep suede trim provides just enough contrast to keep the gunmetal python from looking over-the-top. Balance: It’s a beautiful thing.

Neutrality with multiple textures, materials and colors is a difficult thing to create, but the accessories team at Choo did a fine job here. This bag could be carried in basically any situation where a black bag would be appropriate, but the exponentially higher level of visual interest that a choice like this provides pays plenty of style dividends. As always, though, you’ll have to decide for yourself if it’s worth the elevated price. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $4250.

    It not a bad looking bag, but I would never pay 4000+ for it.

    • KaylaNiche

      Agreed!

  • Alecia

    I can’t say that I like this bag.

  • ninjaninja

    Meh.

  • Musette

    I wish they would re-release the Hilary Doctor bag (with slightly deeper handles this time). That bag is my all-time favorite!

    This bag? Not so much..

    Whoa, not enough style for that price tag.

    I like python, but not here. I have mixed feellings about accepting bags from famous shoe makers and vice versa. Especially at 4 G’s a pop. For that handbag money, I’d go Hermes, not Jimmy Choo.

    That’s alot of money for a ho hum handbag. I have always liked the bracelet detail on the Jimmy Choo bags. But this one is too dark for my taste. I think I would probably prefer a little more metallic.

  • Cathy Fitz

    Really mixed feelings. I like it and yet I don’t. It might be stunning IRL, but it’s too much money to me for a maybe nice bag.

  • Jamie

    Beautiful texture~

  • Manal

    its nice but its not worth to be 4000
