When scouting around town for special accessories that are well-made, creatively classic, and have an element of surprise, a visit to George – A Lifestyle Store in the Crestwood Shops usually proves to be fruitful. Case in point is this Jack Gomme hand-painted tote that reinterprets an essential into something unexpected and artful.
Paul Droulers and Sophie Renier, the imaginatively buoyant and cultivated founders of the popular French handbag line, have merged their love of art, culture, materials, and design into a hybrid of creativity and uniqueness. For their spring/summer 2018 collection, they commissioned Droulers’ father, Robert Droulers, an expressionist artist and member of L’ecole de Paris, to hand-paint a limited edition of their signature canvas totes. Of course, it’s no surprise that this special accessory can be found at George, considering its shop owner is an interior designer with an artful sensibility himself. Bag, $200.
