In general, I hate being called by nicknames. Mandy. Manda. All kind of annoying, all not my name. There have been very few people in my life who have gotten away with calling me either, and no one currently has the privilege. I’d like to keep it that way. I don’t mind calling other things by those names, though, and I’m completely fine with the Jimmy Choo Manda Suede Bag.

In fact, I can’t believe I haven’t written about it already. I’ve expressed previously that I like the way that Choo has mixed leather and suede in many of their recent bags, and I think a deep color like navy blue demonstrates the difference between the two fabric types to great effect.

Jimmy Choo Manda Suede Bag

Navy is dark, but my favorite color to wear in spring and summer is white, and nothing looks better with white than navy. As a result, it works as a spring bag, even though it’s dark and partly suede, and I think that the folks at Jimmy Choo have pulled off a very clever trick by realizing that. Of course, navy also works really well for fall, meaning that a bag like the Manda is one of the few purses I’ve seen lately that will actually work year-round. It’s a bit expensive, but if it’s wearable beyond a few months of the year, it’s money well-spent. Just don’t call me Manda. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $1595.

    This bag is very cute and I also hate people giving me nicknames, especially since my name is short enough that it doesn’t need a nickname.

    I like the idea of coupling suede with leather, and I think the design of the handles on this bag are pretty clever. The color is beautiful…but beyond that I think the bag itself is a little ho-hum. I do realize that lots of women prefer it that way so as not to compete with their bag for attention.

    I think this would be a great all the time bag…I think the shape is nice and it definitely would go with tons of spring and summer outfits.

  • Sarah

    Yay, I am so glad we finally agree on a bag Amanda. I think this is one of Jimmy Choo’s best.

  • janis

    It is not my favorite Choo…I like a little more bling on my bags.

  • hazel

    Ohhh I think it is pretty! I love the color and the mix of materials

  • Otter

    Quite like it. Only down side is that suede is a bummer in the rain and snow (yes, i know — it’s a Spring bag – but still . . . . ). I’d have a breakdown if the bag got spotted.

  • Merve

    Its a nice bag but i think the open zip detail has started getting a bit boring from Choo.

  • Kim

    I purchased a very similar style in white. Beautiful bag however the idea of white suede made me very nervous. It was part of a 60% off sale at Jimmy Choo so I decided to take a chance.

    Beware, I wore dark pants and the black from the pants rubbed off on the bag. These pants had been dry cleaned several times. I was surprised that the white suede attracted the color from the pants.
