Oh, Jimmy Choo.

On a certain level, you have to respect the brand for doggedly pursuing its over-the-top aesthetic in spite of the fact that fur, fringe, embroidery and purple suede, when all grouped together on the same handbag, are objectively a bad idea. I’m not sure if tireless commitment to bad ideas is a laudable thing or not, but at the very least, consistency is appreciated. Whether or not I appreciate the Jimmy Choo Biker Fox and Floral Shoulder Bag is a different issue.

At first, I thought that the purple, pink and blue fringe might be strategically dyed sections of fox hair, and I didn’t hate it. It’s been fashionable to put a panel or two of color in your normal-hued hair for what seems like forever, and why shouldn’t your fur bag, if you just insist on having one, have the same indulgence? Then I realized that most of the colorful sections were actually suede fringe, and I suddenly felt less open-minded.

The embroidery on the body of the bag (only the front flap is fur) could also use an upgrade. We’ve seen some incredibly luxurious embroidered handbags emerge for fall, but the details on this one look a bit inexpensive and hippie-dippy instead of intricate and elegant. What do you think? Answer the title question in the comments or pick this bag up at Neiman Marcus for $5595. (Not a typo.)
