French accessories designer Jerome Dreyfuss may have one of my favorite contemporary handbag companies on the face of the planet, and I only wish that his accessories were more available in the US. Seeing the simultaneously attention-getting and useable bags that Dreyfuss has created for Spring 2011 only makes wish it even more fervently.
I question the logic behind a couple of these designs – the hanging, fringe-y pocket of a perfectly wonderful leopard shoulder bag, for example – but mostly, Dreyfuss creates things that are exceptionally well-suited for young urban women with eclectic tastes. As always, his work with exotics (and python in particular) shines in this collection, but even the regular leather begs have enough personality to stand on their own with any casual outfit.
