Jimmy Choo does leopard spots with lots of glamour. Satchels are this season’s bag to covet and Jimmy Choo
‘Catherine’ bag with its boxy shape in black leather and leopard print calf hair screams glamour. There are tons of practical pockets so you get to compartmentalize everything.
Inspired by Parisian vogue circa 1970s, the Catherine hits a more subversive tone of femininity with old school clasps and poppers, short shoulder handles and an oblong shape but screams boudoir as this leopard shows its true spots.
The Catherine is the star of Choo’s Autumn/Winter 2011 advertising campaign which features a sultry Raquel Zimmerman clutching her Catherine bag lain on the satin strewn bed of her hotel suite with a brooding Ben Hill slouched on the chair behind her. Shot by Steven Meisel the ad campaign harks back to French film noir heroines and reveals the sex appeal to this buttoned down, modern take on a fit-all Mary Poppins’ bag, Jimmy Choo style.
The Catherine bag will be in store come August.
