Rachel Zoe set to launch handbag collection
Did you know. . . Famous celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe is teaming up with Judith Leiber to launch her own handbag collection! Very interesting.
According to WWD. . The stylist, a vegetarian, said she is obsessed with animal skins, and the line incorporates plenty of them. Exotic skins such as lizard, crocodile and python, among other materials, are used in the two silhouettes that she created with Zambrelli. The Medusa style is a pliable satchel with ruched outside pockets at the sides, woven leather or suede shoulder straps and a flap closure. The Cleopatra is an oversize, rectangular minaudiere. Both 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.
These bags will be available in September at Neiman Marcus as well as in the Judith Leiber stores located in Las Vegas, Atlanta, New York and Costa Mesa, Calif. Price range for this collection ranges from $2,000 to $10,000.
My opinion . . wow, pretty pricey! 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. . . buy a simple classic Hermes!
