Jimmy Choo: The Three Faces of Eve
Jimmy Choo's Polly Glazed Canvas bag is an eerie version of pop art gone bad: the dazed, vacant expressions, reinforced by the uneven facial shapes, leave me as disoriented as Eve White was in the movie. Faces and skulls have unfortunately invaded the fashion world, but I've never understood the appeal. This claustrophobic bag confirms my revulsion, and the ridiculous price--$975--also confuses me. For that amount, I'd invest in a quality leather bag.
