G.I.L.I. Lambskin Leather Triple Compartment Crossbody
Unfortunate Terrible Zipper Problem
This is a beautiful purse with soft luxurious leather. I loved the concept and design. Unfortunately, as many have noted, this item has major zipper issues. And a triple compartment cross body bag means three zippers…so that is a serious problem. One zipper just didn’t work from the get go. The other two failed to close soon after. I loved this purse so I tried everything to make these zippers work....but to no avail. They are permanently stuck opened and unusable. Such a shame. I was shocked at how terrible these zippers were, especially for the price. Thank goodness for QVC’s great customer service.
The leather is the most luxurious ever but the zippers are awful! You can't close them without a lot of work if you open them all the way. Gili should have never sent these out for sale. Terrible quality control!!
The colors are nice and the leather is good quality; however, the zipper is poorly designed and, if the zipper is unzipped all the way to the end, it is almost impossible to re-zip and close without pulling out the end of the zipper that is tucked inside the purse at the end. I am aware of the issue and still find myself battling to get the zipper to zip closed every time I use this purses. The only easy solution I've been able to identify is to just pull out the end tabs of all three zippers and leave them hanging out--a bit unsightly, but better than losing an hour trying to re-zip the closure every time I use this purse set. I did not use the purse(s)--bought two different color schemes-- until the 30-day return period was already exhausted, or I would have sent them back. Someone very obviously returned one of my sets for just this reason as the zipper end had clearly been pulled out and stuffed back in. Giving it one star because I won't use these--too much zipper aggravation every time I have used them. Also, they only look good if they have minimal contents--any bulk, and they whole set looks like a really bad idea.
Zip Pah Dee Doo Dah ! ~
As others have already stated broken/non-functioning zippers as well as exposed snaps are deal breakers for me... back it went ! ~ Seriously... $200? ... I foresee a deep discount in the future ! ~ Too bad tho, the concept was original and the quality of leather was first class !
Hit or miss
I bought 2 purses to mix and match the colors. The blush color purse was defective (zippers) there was no fixing the zippers. The black set was great...so back went the blush. Hope the black one keeps working. The leather was nice.
The zippers on this purse does not work well. For the price I expected better quality.
Softest Leather I have ever!
The leather of this purse is not to be believed - it is softer than any leather I've felt - which is saying something as I love to purse shop! I almost don't want to carry it because I'm afraid to mess it up. It is a lovely purse! The fact that you can take it apart is pretty cool, too.
I love the colors, the style, and the lambskin but the zipper once opened would not close.
I returned it. This was my first GILI item but it has put me off.
I have been a satisfied QVC customer for years but this year seems to be .one return after another.
I'm discouraged as I want to like and therefore keep what I order as returns are not my style.
Pretty and practical
really like this purse. It's very pretty and has more than enough room.
Good Idea; Poor Execution
I think this bag is a good idea and the leather is soft....but really, when you unsnap the pouches, who wants to carry around a clutch with snaps on the one side? That is so odd to me. If I saw a woman carrying the pouch as a clutch with snaps showing I would think it was defective or cheap.
Received my GILI purchase today. It is luxurious! Worth every penny! Beautiful craftsmanship and the Lamb Leather is to die for! This is my favorite designer bag, and I own several! So happy with my purchase, so ladies don't hesitate on this one for it is amazing!!!!!
I am surprised that a bag at this price point has a "zipper tail"---that is the zipper is not sewn into the end of the bag but rather it sticks out. Poorly made. Should have had better finishing touches on it.
