The JoJo in hand-painted watersnake, topped with a gold metal-and-leather chain: this is the best Jérôme Dreyfuss bag of Fall/Winter ’13, hands down. Taking things in a rare direction for the brand, the latest incarnation features minimal hardware, zero colorblocking (or mixed prints, for that matter), and a trimmed-down feel. The result? A burst of youthful Parisian exuberance.
Inky hunter green in sleek yet streetwise skin topped with flirty, fun spots: it all adds up to one of those uncommon autumn bags that’s made to make you smile. The new JoJo just might be my very first Jérôme Dreyfuss bag yet. (All it takes is one to change my mind!) If you can’t wait for fall’s release, you can shop the current JoJo on Shopbop, which is currently up for grabs in more typical incarnations, including metallic suede, for $600-$690. To be available at Jérôme Dreyfuss for $830.
