Jerome Dreyfuss Lucien Python Shoulder Bag via Net-a-Porter for $1280

Parisian designer Jerome Dreyfuss has seen his profile rise quite a bit over the past few seasons. Net-a-Porter has picked up his luxury-contemporary bags for Spring 2011, and the Jerome Dreyfuss Lucien Python Shoulder Bag is a great place to start if you want to understand his aesthetic. The colors and combinations may be a little left-of-center, but the materials are top-notch at a price that isn’t too terrible, in the grand scheme of things.

The only thing that makes me question this bag is the fringe on the front; the more I look at it, the more it seems like an overwhelming suede mustache. In my mind’s eye, I can see this bag looking absolutely chic sans the tan suede, but I still have a nagging little feeling that perhaps the design would lose something without it. A sense of playfulness? Maybe. But if Jerome Dreyfuss is skillful enough to make me stop and consider that a suede bag mustache might be a savvy design move, then I suppose I shouldn’t question his choices anyway. Still, I’d like to see the bag without the fringe for comparison’s sake; I quite like everything else about it, particularly the color combination and texture. Let us know what you think in the comments, or buy through Net-a-Porter for $1280.

    This ist not really my style, a bit too much of everything!

  • Maggie

    Definitely too much!

    I think that if the red flap in the front actually matched the leather going through the chain, it would be okay. And, rid it of the suede mustache and the “coin purse” under it.
    I didn’t like this collection. I saw another version of this on another site. It was too, too much as well.

    I don’t think I’d buy it, but on the right person it could be pretty awesome.

  • AshleyG

    It would be fine if it didn’t have those glittery tortilla strips hanging off the bottom…

  • nappy

    it looks like somebody went through the recycling bin of fendi,lv,chanel, celine, and everybody else and pulled out all the scrap parts and made it into this bag. the fringe makes me think of a weird nazi mustache in a bad bad way

      • KaylaNiche

        HAHAHA! I can see all the elements you described. #frankenbag

  • Lucinda

    Yuck, it looks like a Frankensteins monster of a bag that’s puking up!

  • Lynn

    I LOVE everything about this bah!

  • JJ

    seriously, who in the right mind would carry this?

  • rose60610

    It’s like they had scraps of python laying around and didn’t want to waste them so they threw them together quilt-fashion. Hideous.

  • Lulugurl

    Way too much.

  • Lynndenise

    Too much.

  • Bee

    I could love this bag! Right after I remove the fringe :) and hide the strap. I’d also make the coin purse detachable ( I like the colour but not the bulk). hehe

  • DJ

    I need brain bleach to wipe this image from my mind.

  • Cathy Fitz

    Tooooo much going on. And I also don’t like the color choices.

  • Lynda

    There is definitely too much!

  • Hope

    It looks like the coin purse on the front is slurping noodles. Not attractive.

  • 19yearslater

    Too much. The bag looks like it’s puking.

  • bisbee

    It’s really awful.

  • Barb

    Way, WAY too much. looks like a bag with a fringed pouch stuck to it..

  • Musette

    this bag is hysterical – in a Not Good Way! Betcha this is a ‘scrap project’ – I wish I could do a ‘scrap’ project and charge $1300!

    xo

  • Chele

    I won’t carry this bag even if it was free (a gift or won in a drawing, etc).

  • ChanelAngel

    Oh ghosh.. it looks………..so mismatched everywhere!
