Jimmy Choo Riki Metallic Handbag
Everyone is familiar with Jimmy Choo’s Ramona Bag. For quite some time now, however, a smaller version of the Ramona has existed. It is called the Riki Bag. Yes, it has the same belted gathering and same flap closure with fliplock. In fact, it kind of hard to tell the two apart, especially in pictures on the web. But the Riki Bag is different from the Ramona. What makes it different? Its a whole 2 inches shorter in both height and width which, I think, makes it a little bit more manageable as a shoulder bag.
Although the Riki Bag is not a new thing, the color I have pictured above is! How do you girls feel about bronze? Well that’s what you’re going to get if you decide to buy this new metallic version of the Riki Bag. Now I personally don’t think bronze is a bad color. Not at all! I think it brings a new freshness to the metallic “trend” that we’re seeing right now (note: I am using the word “trend” loosely here). Hey, everyone has silver or gold, but bronze is a little bit more unique. My only complaint is that it would not be as versatile as silver or gold. I mean, wouldn’t the bronze be a little bit difficult to match with an outfit?

- Double shoulder straps
- Goldtone hardware
- Flap closure with metal fliplock
- Three open pockets and one zip
- One key fob snap
- Measures 14″W X 9″H X 5″D
