At first, I really wanted to dislike this incarnation of the Jimmy Choo Maia Hobo. It is, as La Gunn would say, a lot of look. It’s suede and animal print and color-blocked and wooden-handled. It has an extra strap that Choo is pretending makes it a hobo (ha, it totally doesn’t) and it’s got a center zipper that makes the bag larger or smaller, depending on how you use it. The Maia? She’s no shrinking violet.

And besides the extra shoulder strap (a message to the folks at Choo – an extra strap doesn’t suddenly make a satchel a hobo. This is a satchel), I kinda like it, but only if the zippered portion is left open (which is my feeling about almost all of the Choo zip-center bags). It reminds me of the Louis Vuitton safari aesthetic of this season, but executed in a more edited and reasonable way. The material means it would probably get dirty fast, but if I had a bunch (and I do mean a BUNCH, it’s way overpriced) of extra cash laying around, I’d rock it. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $2995.

    Oddly, I like it too. Usually I don’t go for the animal prints but the blue kind of makes it cool.

  • Merve

    I definitely dont like it. Too much going on and the price is just stupid.

  • Anita

    I like the blue and animal print together, but either the strap or the handle have to go.

  • HuntJumpSC

    Too similar to all of the awful knockoff animal print bags I see where I live. I hate those things and they’re everywhere I look!

    OMG! A blue zebra just exposed himself to me!

  • janis

    This is one Choo I don’t like. The blue zebra pony hair is just too much!

  • Puss in boots

    I actually like this bag!

  • janis

  • jess

    lol how much for this Jimmy Choo Maia Hobo ? what kind the leather?

  • My Tran

    I DO like, minus the wooden handles. Maybe black/brown leather handles would’ve been better.

  • Sinful Dresses
