As Jerome Dreyfuss makes more and more of a name for himself, the number of retail outlets selling his bags is increasing rapidly, but ShopBop was on his bandwagon long before it was trendy. (And I don’t mean that in a snide way – it’s becoming trendy for very good reason.)
Our Jerome Dreyfuss archive indicates that we’ve reviewed iterations of the Jerome Dreyfuss Billy Bag from ShopBop no fewer than three times, but this rich purple color is easily good enough to warrant another mention and a further look.
I have a well-documented spot in my heart for purple bags, and I may need to add some purple suede to my collection sooner rather than later. It allows for a more vibrant finish than regular leather, not to mention the lush texture than suede provides. Although it’s generally regarded as a cold-weather fabric, when it comes to handbags, you can wear suede in a color like this year-round. And since you can carry this design as either a tote or a hobo, you might find yourself wanting to do just that. Buy through ShopBop for $685.
