Holy blast from the past, Batman! Or would it be Batgirl, in the world of accessories? Pressing questions, these.

Anyway, if you’ve been a fan of designer bags for a few years now, you’ve likely seen the Jimmy Choo Tulita Shoulder Bag before. For those of you who joined us recently, there was a point in the not-so-distant past at which Jimmy Choo was merely a shoe brand. In the mid-2000s, they branched out in to bags and never looked back.

Back in those heady days of their first non-shoe products, however, the Tulita was one of Jimmy Choo’s first bag designs (or possibly the very first – it’s difficult to pin these things down) – but is there still a market for it?

This isn’t the first time as of late that Saks has seen fit to reissue a seasons-old bag as an “exclusive,” despite the somewhat questionable demand for the bag’s revival (Chloé Silverado, anyone?), and it seem almost equally out of left field as the previous choices. Was anyone really dying to see the Tulita on store shelves again, after an absence of only a couple of years?

It’s a perfectly serviceable handbag option, for sure, but I’d rather see Saks stock itself with new, interesting options than accessories that we all thought were interesting five years ago. Just because the economy was better back then doesn’t mean that we want to dress exactly like we did during that time. Buy through Saks for $1350.

    its an ok bag, not in my price range! (fb)

  • Tamee

    I’m not swayed either way. It looks like a basic ordinary bag. Nothing wow about it. Classic style. I wouldn’t pay that kind of price for it though. (fb)

  • Pat

    This isn’t one of my faves from Jimmy Choo. I like a black bag with gold tone hardware, but this one doesn’t really interest me. I’m not too sure if there’s still a market for it as well. (fb)

  • Amy

    It’s sophisticated, but a little off. (fb)

  • swags

    I like this one! I love the detail on the bag that takes it from your basic black bag to one that stands out. I didn’t realize that its one from several years ago as I haven’t followed Choo but I think it has classic and trendy characteristics.

    The only thing that keeps from lusting after it is the size. I love my big bags and don’t think this one would be large enough to really stand out. (fb)

    I had always wanted a Tulita bag. The price always kept me from buying one. However, it doesn’t appeal to me because I am not a black handbag person.

  • Lynn

    I actually like this one. (fb)

  • justa9url

    This bag is kind of boring… And I can’t help but see paperclips as the link between the bag and the strap. (fb)

  • Sofia Nolan

    Jimmy Choo is kicking it classy? Surprising :)

  • An4

    yawn. granny bag.

  • Debbie C

    It looks like a classic design but don’t really see the need to re-release it as an exclusive item. (fb)

  • Shine

    I agree, fashion statement is far better now that before, blast from the past and we all knew how it feels when we saw our old pictures with old fashion way of dressing. Plus isnt it that everything is upgrading, so i prefer vintage with touch of updated fashion.(fb)

  • Shine

    Its like the shape of my mom’ bag during the 80′s.(fb)

  • Tiff Chao

    This bag is a little too business like and boxy for me. (fb)

  • Kate

    It just doesn’t feel right… (fb)

  • savannah

    Its a little bit… boring. (fb)

  • Kayla

    Boring but definitely practical. (fb)

  • Valentina

    Not refreshing, but it’s a nice bag after all. (fb)

  • abitnerdy

    haha loved the last line of the blog. I think they should of held back a wee bit longer :) I need more excitement! (fb)

  • Jacqueline

    Not loving this. The strap hardware look like giant safety pins (fb)

  • Melody

    mmm its quite nice but i wouldnt go gaga over it… (fb)

  • Roxanna

    It’s too plain for my taste. (fb)

  • Karin bag4bag

    There is classic and then there is boring… This style looks like a secondhand shop bargain donated by a grandmother from the sixties. Why revive this style again ? Don’t like the color of the hardware and the hard handle dates the whole bag. (fb)

  • covertanjou

    Very boring bag. I would NOT pay $1300 for this bag. (fb)

  • robyn

    Definately not one of my favorites…..(fb)

  • Signe

    Dull! (fb)

  • Valerie

    not for me (fb)

  • Lauren

    It doesn’t do anything for me, and it doesn’t feel like a Choo bag to me. (fb)

  • Alissa

    I collect Choo Tulitas, and they are amazing. Well worth the reissue, IMHO.

  • llson

    A classic Choo bag, I own 2 embellished versions and love them. However, I would probably spend the $1350 on a newer style. I love Choo bags, they always get compliments.

  • Hakan

    model was similar to Fendi…need to be creative :)

  • Monique

    not my fave Jimmy Choo (fb)

  • Mika

    too much for its price (fb)

  • ad

  • Theresa W

    Hmmmm….looks too much like the Fendi B…need to be more original… (fb)

  • Leticia

    It seems very dated to me… (fb)

  • Sylvia

    That is kinda small for that price (fb)

  • Karelia

    Not my favourite Jimmy Choo’s bag.. but I like it (fb)

  • Adrienne Zedella

    boring (fb)

  • Tiff Chao

    It’s an okay bag. I would probably bring it to work if it was a bit bigger. (fb)

  • Leslie

    seems kind of old and dated to me. Something that my aunts would wear. (fb)

  • Deborah Curran

    not as stylish for today as I would like for that amount of money (fb)

  • Joyce

    Agree with Deborah Curran. The bag doesn’t look like its cost.
