Alaia Leopard Tote, $4770. Jimmy Choo Gaia Leopard Tote, $2295. Both via Net-a-Porter.

Much to my eternal delight, leopard print is going absolutely nowhere. It came on strong as an accessories trend last fall, but the pattern has been falling in and out of favor for decades and it’s here to stay as long as fashion’s love for maximalism remains strong. In fact, the amount of leopard that’s surfacing for Fall 2011 might be an all-time high for the modern fashion industry.

Assuming that you’re still in to leopard, that means you’ve got some accessories decisions to make. Natural or grey? Satchel or tote? Partially leather or all haircalf? Alaia Leopard Satchel or Jimmy Choo Gaia Leopard and Leather Tote? Personally, I’ll pick Alaia every day, all day, but take a look at the larger pictures and pricing information after the jump before you let us know which design wins this Bag Battle.

    I prefer the Alaia over the Choo, though I like the idea of gator/croc on animal print.

    Jimmy Choo my whole life. No way!

    The Alaia it is gorgeous!

  • Amy

    I can’t decide. Luckily, they’re both way out of my price range, so it doesn’t matter.

  • Kjon

    The Alaia hands down for me.

  • Seejayluvsbags

    Love the Alaia……before I saw the price of course.

  • babe

    definitely Alaia, classy

  • M.T.

    The Alaia seems way more versatile and wearable to me. It’s definitely one of those bags you can wear dressed up or down. Plus, I’ve never been too fond of the bright leopard print. Too many “cheapy” brands have made bags in this color and ruined it for me.
    I also love the no-logo aspect of the Alaia satchel, makes it more classy. :)
