Fashion designer Isabel Marant’s partner created his eponymous label – Jérome Dreyfuss – because he couldn’t find any handbags she liked. His bags and newly launched shoe line don’t follow seasons but are timeless with a 70s chic vibe (the A/W 2017/18 collection channels Flower Power). If this rated talent can keep the cult queen of French style happy, he must be doing something right!
The brand has boutiques in London, New York and Taipei, as well as three stores in Paris, with two focussing exclusively on the women’s collection, and the rue Jacob outlet offering both men’s and women’s ranges. The look is hip and understated, with fab yet functional messenger bags, camera bags, totes, clutches, chain wallets and shoulder bags in gorgeous, soft-to-the-touch materials and a choice of neutral or more unusual, vibrant colours. Signatures include flat brasstone studs and JD’s abstract initials in tone-on-tone suede.
Alongside bags, you’ll find shoes – think boots, heels, sandals and pumps for lasses, and trainers and moccasins for lads – plus men’s accessories, such as slim wallets, coin purses and portable phone chargers wrapped in smooth leather.
A firm fave with the fash pack, as well as cred celebs Julianne Moore, Keira Knightley and Jessica Biel, this under-the-radar label is stocked in upscale global stores like Barneys New York and Liberty London, plus select multi-brand boutiques. Luxe accessories just got a Gallic shot in the arm…
