Apparently Gerard Darel is so hot in Europe stores can not keep it’s signature flap bag in stock. After doing some sleuthing, we discovered that this Parisian design house has been owned and managed by it’s founders since 1971, which gets The Bag Snob’s approval! Choosing popular French actress Charlotte Gainsbourg as it’s spokesmodel and muse is also a brilliant move, her mother is Jane Birkin, and may propel the flap bag to the iconic status of the bag her mother inspired, the Birkin. Grab yours now before Neiman Marcus sells out(remember the chocolate Gryson that sold out within hours after we gave it our stamp of approval?). At $625 we suggest you get both the black and the brown!
