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.
