Jimmy Choo Project PEP Glazed Canvas Tote

Back in June, we found out that Jimmy Choo was going to be releasing a line this fall in conjunction with Elton John’s AIDS charity, and now the first vestiges of that limited edition line are making their way to market for pre-order. Everything from flip-flops to clutches will be available, but the centerpiece of the effort is the Jimmy Choo Project PEP Glazed Canvas Tote.

Just as they said it would, the bag’s pattern includes a mishmash of symbols from the Choo design lexicon – studding, eyelet, the British flag, animal print. The overall feeling is slightly punk but still high end, just like what they appear to be going for lately. It’d be a great bag for casual weekend use or for bad weather since the canvas is glazed.

The best part of the bag, though, is the big charitable contribution that it will make – 25% of the net sales from the Project PEP line will go to the Simelela Rape Center in South Africa, which provides anti-HIV medication and healthcare to rape victims. Nearly $250 will be donated for every one of these totes that is sold. Buy through Nordstrom for $995.

    I like the team up with charity for this bag.
    BUT…. it’s just not very good. I like the studded straps but I wish they were thicker. And I detest the print of the bag. It’s weird and something I may have carried in high school….. maybe. I do like that the texture can endure water, so that’d be great for the rainy winter that’s coming up.

  • yslsuperlover

  • chloehandbags

    I really like it – very Sex Pistols! :D

    ITA that the straps should, ideally, be slightly wider, though.

  • chloehandbags

    …and yes, I also agree that it’s overpriced – even minus the $250.

  • Sweet Pea

    Very good cause, but the bag is too busy for my taste.

    It reminded me of the time LV came out with something similar like this. Was it a few years back?

    I absolutely LOVE this bag!! Saw it on magazine and just fell in love with it!! When I saw the actual item it seems the print was blurry and it was not as cute as on the magazine, however, after I tried it on my shoulder… it’s the BEST look!! It is good with both casual and formal wear! TWO THUMBS UP!! I love it so much.. I bought the large one for myself and bought a medium one for my cousin as her Christmas gift….

    LOVE LOVE LOVE~!

  • jo

    i own this bag and i love it! its not the sort of thing i would usually buy but when you put it on your shoulder, it feels so right! i like the small straps because if they were thicker it would slide off your shoulder. the quality is amazing and i love that i can buy something great with such a huge contribution to charity. it makes you feel less guilty and proud to help in some ways.
