JPK Paris75 SignatureFabric Bucket Bag with Logo Hardware & Leather Strap
Pretty bag but....
It is so funny, I purchased a bag identical to this one at a shoe store that was a leather look-alike in black with silver hardware for $22. I always get compliments on it. So, when I saw this I was like ok I love the bag so, even though this one is $129 I purchased it anyway. The only bad thing is it is fabric, and it doesn't have feet on the bottom. The one I purchased for $22 even has feet on the bottom. The hardware is very nice and well made but it is a liittle heavy for a fabric bag. The inside is a nice printed fabric with nice pockets inside and great button "magnetic" closures. So, even though I feel it is overpriced I still like the style. I am like the other lady that commented, wish they sold just the bags "at a reasonable" price. I would buy one of every color. I got the Fushia and the strap is BROWN not black.
Nice Casual Bag
I purchased this in Carbon. The color is beautiful. Somehow I didn't realize how textured the material is. It is almost like a very heavy canvas pique, very casual and weighty. The beautiful hardware just adds to the heaviness and makes the bag awkward .It s very organized but it is just not for me. I did return so someone else can enjoy. I would not recommend because I think this bag would only work for some people.
Love this bag! Received lots of compliments the first day I used it! Love the organization in the bag! My only complaint is that the hardware is a bit heavy or it would have been 5 stars!
The picture of the purse does NOT do it justice. I bought the teal and love everything about it. The color really pops in person, but is not overboard in the least. The silhouette is perfect, and it is neither too heavy nor too flimsy. I find the strap to be very comfortable and it stays securely on my shoulder. The material used is stunning and in no way inexpensive looking. The hardware is the real show. How something so simple can be so beautiful I don't know, but it works for me! As to the basics and some tips - the purse IS unstructured but has just the right amount of slouch for a true hobo. There are many pockets inside, and a simple purse organizer will help anyone who feels the need for more organization. The drop says 9" but the hardware adds a couple of inches to the drop. I'd buy several colors if I could. I am going back for the dark grey and can't wait to see the graphite hardware. it's a stunner!
Black bag, Strap IS 100% LEATHER
Love my new bag! I ordered the black. It is a really nice casual to business casual bag. This will be great for travel due to the bag's weight and the shoulder strap thickness stays on my small shoulders. I love the interior lining, its a cotton lining, and not that slippery poly stuff that makes all your items fall to the bottom of the bag. Inside the black exterior the lining is white with pretty red roses. I love the organizational pockets. I stand my wallet upright and this helps the entire bag to stand up when I put it down.
After removing it from the packing i notice that the strap was not like my previous JPK bags. So I went to the reviews here and noted that another review said they thought the strap is vinyl. Mine came in very stiff and didn't really have the texture or feel of my previous purchases of JPK Paris bags. My previous bags had the super soft luxurious Buffalo hide handle. So this morning, I called JPK Customer service to clarify and after the rep spoke with the design team, she said "the strap is 100% natural cowhide and no design revisions were made to the QVC line. They have recently changed their handles to be a bit sturdier than in the past to maintain quality and to support the hardware on the bag". I found this answer satisfactory, will wait for my handle to break it self in like natural leather will do. To the other reviewer.. I would send the bag back to QVC for an exchange or to the manufacturer for a replacement strap if yours is cracking.
This is my first JPK Paris purchase....I rec'd the Bucket Bag in Natural and the color is beautiful and perfect for summer. However, the hardware is so heavy that it makes the entire bag collapse and it is difficult to find items in the bag. When I use it I try to put things I need in small make up bags so that I can just pull the make up bag out, otherwise it is difficult to find anything in the bag. I have to say that I did get ball point ink pin on the outside. I used a Tide stain stick and a wet wash cloth and the stain came right out. I gave the bag 4 stars for the quality because it is a well made bag but this style is just too deep for such heavy hardware. I would consider another purchase because of the quality but I will never purchase another bucket bag.
The bag is nice looking, with great hardware and durable fabric.....EXCEPT the shoulder strap, which is not leather as described but vinyl. I have had this bag just over two months and the strap is cracked up and down both sides. A huge disappointment considering the brand name and the price. I would never have purchased this bag for well over a hundred dollars had I known that the shoulder strap was vinyl!!
LOVE THE TEAL!
LET'S SEE, I'M 65 AND 5 FT TALL AND I DON'T THINK THIS BAG IS HEAVY. I HAVE SOLVED THE PROBLEM OF THE HEAVY HANDLE FALLING OVER BECAUSE I PUT MY V29057 Pursfection Portable Purse Organizer with 9 Pockets IN IT AND EVERY PURSE I USE. LOVE THE COLOR, AND WOULD LIKE A SCARF TO MATCH THE INSIDE MATERIAL. I DO WISH IT WAS A LITTLE WIDER THAN TALL, BUT STILL LOVE IT. I BOUGHT MY SISTER ONE FOR HER BIRTHDAY AFTER SHE RAVED ABOUT MINE. SHE RECEIVED THE PURSE ORGANIZER FOR CHRISTMAS.
NOW ALL THEY HAVE TO DO IS SELL THE PURSE WITHOUT THE HANDLE, SO WE CAN CHANGE THEM OUT. THE HANDLE WILL LAST A LOT LONGER THAN THE PURSE. SO PLEASE GIVE US THIS OPTION.
Give Me More
I was so excited when I saw QVC was offering this bag. I have three other JPK handbags and love them all! My only regret is that i didn't get the previous three bags from QVC. The hardware does make the bag a little heavier than some other handbags so i just put less in the bag or just the neccessities for that day. However, i hope QVC will continue to carry this line with ALOT more varities. Enjoy!!!
The hardware was not gold as described in the desc
I wanted to replace the exact same bag I have had for the past two years. The description says gold tone hardware, however when it arrived it was graphite colored and not gold.
It is not as attractive with the same color as the bag. Other than the color of the hardware, it is a great bag
A summertime beauty in blue!
I got this as a gift in the Atlantic blue and it is a very stylish bag for summer. Yes, it's heavy (as others have said) for a canvas bag because of the hardware, but it is a beautiful, casual bag for summer, with great organization.
JPK Paris75 Signature Fabric Bucket Bag
This is a good size, holds a lot, and has multiple interior pockets. I really like the two right along the seams inside! However, the hardware makes the bag heavy and it also makes it flop over when you set it down. For these reasons, I returned it. Since the top is not zipped closed, I was afraid of possibly losing items during the "heavy hardware flopover".
