Two for the Road

The Gucci canvas with navy trim handbag and the Jil Sander black clutch are polished pieces. I have the Gucci bag in both brown and black and I’m very happy with them.

  • Hi Preston, I would like to thank you for all of the chic styles that you present to your readers every day. You have inspired me so many times. I was reading some past entries and in Sept 2017 you posted about packing tips. The tote you were carrying was a Jerome Dreyfus and it is beautiful! Do you happen to remember which style it is as I am interested in purchasing one? Would it happen to be the Georges L by any chance? Thank you.

  • Hi Sherry, I pulled out my Jerome Dreyfuss grey Serge tote just last week, it is a great bag. They pop up on resale sites often. The Billy is the new version but it’s a tad over-designed for my liking. P

  • Ah, the timeless shape, the lack of baroque flash, did I mention the shape? Perfection.

  • Thank you for the info Preston. I will check some resale sites. You are right about the newer version, it seems a bit cluttered, instead of sleek like yours. I adore the Gucci bag above, do you think that the white would be pretty?

  • The white is very pretty, I’ve had it sent a few times…

  • I’m swooning for the pearl-white Gucci. I wear all black for most months (just not July/Aug) In NYC and I think it will be an easy way to brighten a look and still go from day to night. I don’t know if I’m a minimalist , but I like flexible pieces that work as hard as I do!

  • I returned the one above. Even though it’s incredibly beautiful, I don’t wear enough navy and it didn’t look right with 99% of my clothes. I’ve had the white one here two times and it’s great. Doesn’t actually look amazing with white to my eye, but it’s fabulous with everything else. If you get it, let me know.
