Favourite Things: Jerome Dreyfuss

Jerome Dreyfuss, photographed by Matthieu Salvaing, in his Paris office, August 30, 2016

He’s married to Isabel Marant, one of the coolest Frenchwomen on the planet, and has a super-creative son. How cult Parisian accessories designer Jérôme Dreyfuss manages to surprise his family with original gifts each year is anyone’s guess, but with his eponymous under-the-radar brand of luxurious accessories to hand, he surely can’t go far wrong. Add to his vast range of butter-soft leather bags, shoes and accessories a few choice picks—gold and sapphire boho earrings from an Ibiza designer, a piece of iconic mid-century modern furniture, a little something from MoMA—and you’ve got gift-giving gold. He tells us all about it.
