Long after it's introduction into the world of celebrities(and then us mere mortals) and then followed by it's faded status as an "It Bag" , the Jimmy Choo Ramona and it's little sister the Riki are still going strong. Jimmy Choo has a knack for resurrecting this style each season. Just when you think it has seen it's final incarnation, the Riki is introduced yet again in a new leather, color, sheen, or texture, and with new embellishments. I am always very curious what the new version will look like. Sometimes the new combination is hugely tempting and sometimes it is downright laughable.It's slouchy hobo style is enhanced with rings and belting to create a casual bag with a certain sex appeal. It is an easy bag to wear with a myriad of styles. This is why I think the Ramona and Riki prevail today. The Autumn/Winter collection at Jimmy Choo had some nice choices. My personal favorites were the Slick Red Riki and the Coarse Metallic Suede Riki . Cruise was just introduced, and I fear it might be a rough one for the Riki and Ramona. What I have seen so far looks a tad overdone. All available at
