It looks like wife Isabel Marant’s sense of unfussy Paris cool is rubbing off on Jérôme Dreyfuss. Not that he didn’t have it to begin with – this bag is just a much more laid-back take than many of his colorful leopard and python shake-ups. But Jérôme is a designer who always keeps us on our toes.
This season, it feels like he is saying, “It’s time to chill out.” This linen-canvas blend comes in a cool, funky shape that’s a great casual piece for relaxed summer. Golden hardware fancies it up, while the trademark red, white, and blue zipper-pulls are in keeping with Dreyfuss’ sense of eclecticism. And you can expect this bag to have an eclectic life – this top-handle-to-shoulder style is also expandable, which is great for travel. From city to country (Isabel and Jérôme divide their time between Paris and a cabin in the woods), this dark linen is as cool as can be. Perhaps the most awesome touch: it comes with a mini-flashlight so you’ll never be fishing around for your belongings in the dark! On Net-a-Porter for $620.
