Designer Jérôme Dreyfuss (who’s married to the superchic
Isabel Marant) gives all of his handbags classic male French monikers like Luc, Thierry, and Lucien. This fall he’s adding clothes to his repertoire with a trio of jackets. Their names? Gérard, Paul, and the intentionally misspelled Steeve,
as in Depardieu, Newman, and McQueen—three men, Dreyfuss says, “all the girls at our office are so in love
with.” Available at the designer’s New York and Paris boutiques, the jackets are done in sumptuous sheepskin and lambskin, some with crocodile trim ($1,880–$2,780). Come spring Dreyfuss will debut leather pants and shorts, but their names are still up in the air, he says.
One you can definitely rule out, however, is Jérôme:
“That would be a little pretentious.”
