A219280 - Kathy Van Zeeland Luxury Croco Embossed Zip TopTote Bag
I have had other kvz bags and this was the first one that had such bad construction I had to return it for the same bag.
I know I am hard on purses but the interior should not be fraying after wearing for a short period of time.
If you are getting one her purses " Buyer Beware"
Poor Construction of Lining
I have owned this bag for less than 2 months and use it every day. The interior lining is falling apart above the pocket that is designated for your cell phone. For an interior space that would encounter repeated use, the lining should be reinforced, there is barely enough material to sew together. On a positve note, I like the size of the bag and the features of the bag, but disappointed it was not more durable.
Grown Up Bag- New lining too dark!
This is a great bag for business or other occasions when we need to look and feel a bit more professional. I love the size (LARGE) - A leather bag of this size and quality would be very expensive. I carry exclusively KVZ, and her new line allows me to choose a Kathy bag for every occasion...
(OK - I had to deduct a star for the darker purple lining. A lighter color makes it much easier to see and navigate inside the bag! Hope Kathy's team reads these reviews!)
Nice looking from afar
Pros: Good size. Gray color was gorgeous and a true medium gray.
Cons: Found that the material of this handbag felt filmy/plastic-y and upon closer inspection looked cheap and obviously fake. Outer zipper pockets were small and hard to access and those zippers were very hard to move on the model I received. Slide pocket on the outside was also hard to access and too small for sunglasses yet too big for cell phone. When I slid in my cell phone I then couldn't get it out very easily so if you have a bigger or wider hand beware that this narrower pocket sounds better than it is. Finally, inside organization was just not there. Certainly not worth around a $100 bucks when you can get leather handbags for this price.
Another great bag
I bought this bag in the Pomegranate color. I thought it would be a bigger bag than in it but it still is a great bag for work. It does fit files if you need to carry anything big, easily can fit an iPad. Very classy looking with the croco texture print. Outside pockets are great too.
Received this bag today! Absolutely gorgeous, KVZ! This new luxury line is so beautiful! The material is wonderful! The croco embossed gives the appearance of high quality leather. My go-to fall purse! I love it!!
