Jimmy Choo Anaconda “Mahdi”


I love lunching with my girlfriends, not only are they the sweetest and funniest group of women on earth, they always carry the best bags (which gives me lots of inspiration for Bag Snob)! Especially my friend Kim, she’s the only person in the world who induces bag envy in me so you can only imagine how delicious her bag collection is. Kim and I joined our crew at Neiman Marcus downtown for juicy brisket and lobster salad the other day and one of the girls had a bag that I could not take my eyes off. It was a luscious cream colored Anaconda bag trimmed in buttery soft cream suede. Do you want to melt now or should I continue? I kept asking to see it and really just wanted to steal it from her but she had about 10 pounds of “stuff” in it so it would have been hard to discreetly stick it in my Valextra Boston bag and run off with it. So what was this bag that captured my attention through lunch you ask? It was the Mahdi from Jimmy Choo, are you surprised? I’d never seen the Anaconda version of the Mahdi before and it looked completely different from the leather versions I’d seen at the stores and never gave a second glance to! Everything about this bag is divine, the big bold Anaconda scales contrasted against milky suede add incredible texture and dimension to the bag, the gold hardware livens up the monochromatic palette, and the two outer side zippered compartments are functional without getting in the way of the overall design. I also love that the logo is discreetly placed on top of the bag. It is so easy to use and will absolutely go with everything for every occasion. It’s actually a very soft and unstructured bag and not at all boxy like the photo above. You must go see this for yourself and tell me what you think. $3,895 At Jimmy Choo boutiques or JimmyChoo.com.

    You’re so right about the gold hardware and logo being on top. I hope the scales are sturdy and don’t fray.

    I can’t get past snake skin, am unable to even tell if I like the bag. It’s a problem for me.

    There is no “About Me” on this blog or this is a company blog?

    Quiet an interesting blog I might add. 🙂

    Hi – was in Vegas with my mom for a little fun. But in any case at the Jimmy Choo store (at the Forum)… this bag is on sale as is the Marin clutch in python. Thought you’d want to know.
