It’s that time of the season when all of our favorite boutiques slash prices to make room for the new season. And hey, I’m not complaining one bit, and you wont either once you see all the gorgeous bags, shoes, clothing and accessories in the sale section. Gotta love those deals!
Here are a few of my favorites from the sale:

This adorable find is called the Momo (Did you notice all his bags are labeled with a male name?)
There is nothing simplistic about Jerome Dreyfuss‘s new Momo, so if you’re looking for something simple, you’re looking in the wrong direction.
So why have I fallen so hard for this bag? Because the mix of fabrics is purely genius! It’s a fun crossbody that can be worn anywhere. I can honestly say there is nothing quite like it in my bag-drobe.. but I wish there was!
Jerome Dreyfuss is no stranger to Bag Bliss! I have written about his attractive, yet functional handbags before and I have always enjoyed doing so. He is, however, a stranger to Net-A-Porter. Well, at least he was until just recently! That’s right, Jerome Dreyfuss has come to Net-A-Porter!
Famous for his use of super soft and supple leather, Jerome Dreyfuss introduced his handbag collection to the world in 2002. Interestingly, the French designer gives each of his pieces a male name. Reportedly, his intention was to make the man in your life come in second to your coveted accessory. Wow, talk about ego trips! Then again, I have been known to baby a handbag or two in ways that seem on the verge of insanity!
Jerome Dreyfuss is a designer that isn’t mentioned very often over at TBF. Oddly enough, however, this isn’t the first time I have featured the French designer in a blog post. His styles are often referred to as laid-back or relaxed. They are nonchalant, sometimes to the point of quirkiness. His use of supple leather and ultra-soft suede only serves to add to this effect. So it was no surprise when my gaze fell upon the handbag I have pictured here. Meet the Jerome Dreyfuss Luciene Suede Fringe Bag. No, your eyes are not playing tricks on you! Leopard print and fringe have been paired together in a single handbag. What I find interesting, however, is how the pouch on the front and the fringed panel are both detachable. So this bag can be worn three ways. Personally, though, I think the bag looks best without the pouch and fringe attached. This handbag is definitely something for the more eccentric person. Someone that is looking for something unique, even something a bit on the quirky side. This bag is something I personally would not buy for myself. And yet, for some reason, I find my eyes being drawn to it. Hmm… but perhaps that was what Jerome Dreyfuss had in mind.
The Jerome Dreyfuss Luciene Suede Fringe Bag is composed of haircalf, suede, and pebbled leather. It measures 10″ x 6.5″ x 3″ and it retails for $795. Find it at Shopbop.com.

Jerome Dreyfuss Joss Clutch
French designer Jerome Dreyfuss has made the Editor’s Pick list over at Shop Bop. What is this curious-looking clutch called? Meet the Joss Clutch! To be honest, when I first saw this clutch, it didn’t appeal to me at all. The crisscrossing straps on the front seemed a bit weird to me. But the more I looked at it, the more it began to grow on me. The simple shape and the buttery soft leather were calling out to me. For some reason, I see this clutch being worn as an everyday bag. Like when you’re out running errands and you don’t want to carry a lot of stuff with you. I picture this clutch paired with jeans and riding boots. Definitely not a look that is for everyone, but I think it has potential if worn with the right outfit. Plus I love the little flash light, key hook, and mirror that are tucked inside! How cool is that?
The Jerome Dreyfuss Joss Clutch is new for Fall 2008. The soft leather clutch features wrap around strap detail and a flap closure. It measures 12″ x 6.5″ and it retails for $635 (A bit high, but these bags are made in France). The Jerome Dreyfuss Joss Clutch is available in Petrol (Dark Blue) and Kaki (Brown).

We here at Bag Bliss have fallen head-over-heels for french designer Jerome Dreyfuss. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this designer, below is a great interview with the handbag designer that was published some time ago in Elle. A member of thefashionspot was nice enough to translate it from French to English.
Your first fashion desires?
I got into this career to flirt with girls. I was super shy and asked them if they wanted to come try dresses at my place. One morning, I got to my office and it was incredible, Naomi, Claudia, Nadja Auermann sitting in the stairs and waiting to try on clothes and I hadn’t even booked a meeting.
When I begun, we were immersed in the minimalist era, an austere fashion, very dark, a little gothic, anyway hyper minimalistic and here I was with my images of fashion that made me dream when I was a kid, and that was Alaya, Mugler, Montana.
Accessories were a desire. I thought girls’ consumption habits had changed. Bags became the silouhette’s essential element, which it was not before.
Innovations for the spring-summer collection?
The shapes are still a bit “loose”, bags that slouch, all soft, in which you can put a lot of things, that are rather large. About the range of colours, there is an emerald green that works really well.
Your sources of inspiration?
I work for my wife and my friends, for girls of my generation who are on the go, work and have children.
My leathers are as soft as a baby’s buttocks, and babies’ bottocks are really soft!
