Happy Fat Tuesday! I don’t know about you, but any holiday that encourages you to indulge in decadent foods (Did you know Mardi Gras was originally a binging festival so people could stock up, so to speak, on fatty foods ahead of giving up their favorite treats for Lent?), wear anything and everything flashy, and let loose in the streets gets my support. Maybe you’re storming the French Quarter as we speak or maybe you didn’t even realize beads were being tossed around with reckless abandon today.
The Anatole marks the arrival of a great new shape from Jérôme Dreyfuss, who seems to just get better each season. Full of unique details without looking overcomplicated and casually versatile with enough intrigue to keep you interested, it’s a day bag you can carry to help shake up the week.
There’s nothing like a good animal print to get your engines revved, so to speak, but once you’ve seen so much leopard and zebra season after season, it’s hard for the standard exotic motifs to do the trick. Enter the Bambi effect.
The saying goes, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, but the latest variations on Jérôme Dreyfuss’ well-loved bag styles have me thinking that change can be a good thing. A very good thing.
I absolutely love this! Never one to complacently go with the ordinary designer grain, mix-master designer (and husband to Isabel Marant) Jérôme Dreyfuss always has a distinct, unmistakable way of shaking up textures and colors. But this three-way combo of denim, suede, and snake is flat-out genius.
