Judith Leiber | Cleopatra and Medusa Collection | Mischa Barton
This is an update on the Judith Leiber post that I blogged about when the news was first introduced – The bags are set to debut this month at all Judith Leiber stores (located in Las Vegas, Atlanta, New York and Costa Mesa, California) Saks Fifth Avenue, and Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus and retail in the high range of $2,000 to $10,000.
Stylist to the rich and famous celebrities Rachel Zoe is teamed up with Judith Leiber to create high-end chic bags with reptile detailing. Rachel Zoe (a vegetarian) is obsessed with animal skins and incorporates much of this passion into her new line. The exotic animal skins used to create these bags, to name a few, are crocodile, lizard, and python. To this collection there are two basic styles that Rachel Zoe created with Frank Zambrelli the creative director for Judith Leiber. The Medusa style is a pliable satchel with ruched outside pockets at the sides, woven leather or suede shoulder straps and a flap closure and the Cleopatra is an oversize, rectangular minaudiere. The bags come in about 12 color variations, including a siren red and a matte gold, and are topped off with a heavy gold fob depicting two snakes coiled around a ring. The inspiration for these pieces came from by an old French doorknocker. Huh, I wonder if that’s what Christian Louboutin had in mind.

I haven’t seen this collection yet but I’m very curious to see how these bags turn out. So far from what I have been reading about this collection I’m not that impressed, I would rather save my money and buy a more classic bag, such as a Hermes.
