5.0 out of 5 starsSuper adorable Karl Lagerfeld crossbody purse that's durable and built to last.
Reviewed in the United States on 7 February 2020
This Karl Lagerfeld Paris Maybelle CHOUPETTE Camera Crossbody is super adorable, and I love the Merlot color in this "cool cat" style. The color represented on my computer screen from their product page is pretty much exactly the color I received (definitely Merlot - very beautiful and rich color!), and it arrived completely flawless, with not one stitch out of place, no sloppy threads, etc. - just perfect and adorable!
This is made from synthetic materials, so if you were expecting real leather - this isn't it. That said, it looks a little like leather (although you can definitely tell it's not at all when you touch it), but it's not soft to the touch at all, which makes it very durable and super easy to maintain and clean. This is made from hardy material that doesn't scuff, scratch, etc. easily at all - keeping it looking new for a long, long time.
It's lined well with nylon material that is also very easy to keep clean, and there were no stitches out of place anywhere. There's a small zippered pocket inside it, but that's about it - it's very minimalist, and the size is very small and light. There's an outer pocket in the back that closes with a magnetic flap - but it doesn't fit larger cell phones, unfortunately. (My iPhone 7 Plus won't fit.) The zipper is robust and hardy, the adjustable purse strap is sturdy and adjustable, and everything on it is very well-constructed and built to last for years to come.
The "cat" face is stitched on with perfection, and it really adds personality with a cute, chic look to it that will certainly capture attention and lots of, "Awww! I LOVE your purse!" comments. This would make a perfect gift for the cat lover or as a treat for yourself - it's darling!
This crossbody purse is perfectly sized for keeping my wallet, phone, and some essentials in while going out to places where a lot of walking is involved and I don't want to haul around a larger, heavier purse. It holds a little more than a fanny pack, but that's about it - which is exactly what I love about it. The cat face on the petite size of this purse is just adorable!
On the whole, the quality is actually very good on this crossbody, and if you love cats and Karl Lagerfeld, this is a home run for you. It gets two thumbs up from me!

As pictures speak thousand words and videos another thousand, I put a lot of work in setting up the lighting so I can make a good video and reveal true beauty of this purse. It is super cute and beautiful, had no flaws whatsoever. Every little detail is perfect and just by the look of it you can tell this is expensive purse. I usually have my claws out when reviewing pricey products because I expect a lot for the high price but this purse really delivers. Hence 5 stars.
Edit: After spending more time with this cute little purse I am realizing it became one of my favorites! It holds well and I am not the person that takes best care of accessories, still looks new. It is super gorgeous and I am not a cat lady!
okay i thought this was a cool looking cat purse when i saw it and being an almost crazy cat lady, i got it. can’t say it is as cool looking in person, the bright eyeglass eyes just don’t match the burgundy color right, would of looked much better had they simply been black too IMO..
purse itself is boxy and rigid so keeps its shape. color is decent and a true darker burgundy.. the strap is unfortunately not removable and are pretty long for my 5’4 frame even when on highest buckle loop. because of the extremely long strap, it is actually uncomfortable to use this purse given where it lays on my body and it keeps returning to the same spot even when i try to keep it towards my behind area so its bulkiness doesn’t bother my lower arm. to me cute purse but, it definitely makes me feel like this is a tall walkway model’s purse so yeah it is more for taller ladies than us shorter ones IMO.
overall it is a cute fashionable purse for taller people who love cats. think the whitish one would be a better choice for a gift since colors of eyes/eyeglasses look more appropriate with that color. Price wise, kinda high but, i guess its partially the brand name on why it cost more than other like ones for it isn’t made with leather or any other fancy material..
5.0 out of 5 starsAdorable for fashionable cat ladies

Gone is the stereotype of a crazy, smelly, cat lady. Enter the stylish cat ladies. The cat ladies who are pandered to by camera cross-bodies by Karl Lagerfield...
This burgundy cross-body has such an adorable design. While being fun and whimsical it's also well made with sturdy stitches, absolutely ZERO stray threads, and durable feeling faux leather. Honestly I thought it was real leather until I took a closer look! The material seems pretty impermeable to scuffs and scratches. It's a pretty merlot color and I think the blush pink glasses go well with it. I wish I had it for Valentine's Day!
I thought it would be kind of childish but because it's so well made it definitely works on an adult. It doesn't hold much, there's a small magnetic pocket on the back and a small zipper compartment inside. I can fit a wallet, lipstick, and have to choose between my phone or clunky key-ring. So it's more of a night out bag, not a day to day mom bag.
4.0 out of 5 starsClassy Alternative to Sanrio, With a Nice Surprise Inside
Reviewed in the United States on 13 April 2020
This is a cute purse, and it was actually a bit larger than I had anticipated, which is a good thing! I kind of have a thing for cats, and have gotten a bit old for Sanrio stuff. This is sort of allowing me to channel some of that energy into something a little more classy. I don't need to talk about the exterior design, as that's probably the biggest selling point. There are not many pockets, but that's ok. Adding more would detract from the streamlined look of this purse. What really made me smile is the interior fabric; it's kind of a satin embossed with Karl's silhouette. Kind of a cool touch! Why not 5 stars? I do find the price point to be high for something that's all synthetic. Had this been leather, it would have been 5 stars all the way!
I wore this bag through and through for our tropical Costa Rica trip last month. The bag is roomy, holds all the essentials ( Like hand sanitizer, lip balm, small wallet and sunglasses case to my surprise) and the strap was comfortable to wear all day. Since it was white, it went with almost all my summery outfits too. The reason I gave it 4 stars is because I did start noticing some color transfer from day 2( we were there for 8 days) and I became extra conscience about it. It is a cute bag and will go nicely with your spring summer wardrobe.
This reminds me of another favorite designer, kate spade, so I was excited to receive this item. It is the perfect size for date night or weekends out and the strap is crossbody so you can still remain hands-free and worry-free. It is big enough to hold the essentials like phone, wallet, keys, zips closed to protect it all, and is so cute with the feline design on the front!
I absolutely love this purse, I had my old Dior for years now and it’s was time to replace it. This is perfect size for running errands, vacations & summer outings. I just love it, the quality, the style, color, durability & leather. It’s very interesting, eye catching and really great choice! So very happy to have it!!!
