What do you think of the Jimmy Choo Ramona bag? Its supposedly the next IT bag. Its amazing how the media determines what is going to be hot.

Great pictures! I have a Jimmy Choo bag as well and have been pretty happy with the quality of it. Its an interesting looking bag and I always get comments on the hardware. We don't have a Jimmy Choo boutique here

I think the ramona bag is one of those bags that probably looks better in person... like I like the bag in the pics where people are carrying it.. I dunno

I just ordered the JC Ramona in navy off of saks.com. Haven't seen it IRL, and agree that the pics don't seem to be doing it justice (compared to the comments of people who have seen it). I'll post pics once it gets here: I can't wait.

^ Ohhh, that's the one I've been looking at. I love the Navy. Please post pics as soon as you get it. Its not on saks.com anymore. I knew I should have ordered it two days ago. Oh well, not that I need another bag.

I agree, not a bag I think I would get just by looking at that photo. But People just had it in their mag as the next IT bag with several celebs holding it. It does look better.

Here is a scan of the bag from this weeks People magazine. When I first saw it I thought it was very nice, however, I'd really like to see it in person. Greendrv please post pics when you get yours. I bet navy is going to be incredible .

Balbabe, thank you so much for the People Magazine scan. Karma for you!! I can't wait... I keep checking my saks.com account to see if it's shipped yet. I did read on the PBF (purseblog.com forum) that the leather is super soft, so the bag is really slouchy (which I love), but that it is very very dark navy and the leather is prone to scratching (a minus in my book). So we'll see once it gets here... my gut tells me that it's going to be love at first sight.

Greendrv, I bet you are going to love it. I think it's a fantastic bag and a great alternative to the balenciaga moto bag. I hope you get yours soon .

I received mine from bergdorf's and it's a nice slouchy roomy shape (though it might be a bit bulbous for my taste), the navy is so dark it's almost black (not sure if that's good or bad), and the leather is soft and scratch prone, but it is a bit textured so it's not quite so high maintenance as some of the other smoother bags. the one thing I don't love which is the one thing I don't love about any of the choo bags is the hardware -- it's so gold and shiny (and on this bag, there's a lot of it) that it makes the bag look a little cheesy.

^ what color did you get?

I'm not sure I'd like the shiny gold either. It would be really nice if it had a brushed gold. I don't like the new gold hardware on the Marc Jacobs bags that are shiny either.
