Jimmy Choo launches the Catherine Collection
July 27, 2011: Jimmy Choo has launched the Catherine Collection which is inspired by the mood of French film noir. The Catherine bag is imbued with ladylike classicism. The mood is tailored with exacting, couture level detail recalling the formal handheld bags of a decadent era. The Catherine lock is an almost jewellery-like expression of scored and studded metal craftsmanship, made in brass with a golden finish.
The slim and beautifully filled top handle drops to a soft rectangular shape with a top zip and snapped pockets on each side. The bag features a panel or flap pocket on the side featuring a rectangular quilted motif with a zig-zag stitch, framed out in luggage stitched leather. The effect is sporty, yet formal. Very chic and classy!
Materials range from a perfectly luxurious box calf in black, blonde and lipstick red to a slicker version in black vintage-finish patent leather, all with the quilted panel in elaphe snake or a more luxurious version in hair calf printed to look like leopard from an antique bag.
