Do grey, dark and dreary days make you yearn for something bright and "sunny"? This handbag by Jamin Puech solves that problem with its cheery and warm colors presented in tailored stripes. Jamin Puech is a contemporary fashion brand that was formed by Benit Jamin and Isabelle Puech. Their creations often had a "bohemian flair" and they used mixed materials to create wearable art in limited editions. They have boutiques in most fashion capitals of the world. This bag highlights their talent because this bag is tailored, smart and unadorned, unlike their more typical richly embellished bags . The bag resembles a messenger style bag with a large flap. It is rectangular with curved corners. It is covered with canvas fabric with brown leather trim. The pattern is striped, with some large stripes and other thin ones. There are multi colored stripes that are wide and large, while others are thin and narrow. The colors are mostly bold, daring and strong such as a deep red orange, a sunny yellow and an emerald green. The strong and bold appearance of these colors are soothed with the addition of sea green stripes. The appearance definitely "wakes one up" and puts a smile on one's face. Yet the stripes also give the bag an air of sophistication. Brown leather trims the bag and also provides accents. The double leather carry straps are interrupted by orange plastic rings. This small detail adds tremendous pizzazz. The drop is 8 1/2". The bag closes with two snaps. The inside is a raw suede. There are three internal compartments, two open and one zippered pocket. The "Jamin Puech Paris" label is sewn inside. The inside is in great shape, I doubt this bag was ever used. The measurements of the bag are 12"w x 7 1/2"h x 1 1 /2" d. Likewise the bag is in wonderful condition with small evidence of age on the the orange rings and on the edges of the leather handles.
What a great bag! Seen from faraway, it is cheery and bold. Yet there is a smartness and sophistication to it. This combination doesn't often work, but thanks to the creativity of Jamin Puech, success is achieved. Condition; Excellent VINTAGE Condition
