Summer 2012 has been flying by and although it’s already about a week into August, the thoughts of fresh fall fashion have been keeping things optimistic. It’s exciting to hear about new development on luxe brands. Judith Leiber’s new contemporary bag collection, Overture, has made things ever sweeter. Just in time for fall, the designer who was previously most noted for her celebrity loved crystal minaudieres, has launched an affordable collection of handbags. Now, not only will Judith Leiber accessories be worn on the red carpet, but will also be designed so that they can be taken out on the town seven days a week.
Even though this is a new line, the collection’s name comes along with some history. The term “overture” is what Judith Leiber used to describe the opening price point styles in her previous collections during the 1980?s. Jana Matheson, the company’s current creative director sought inspiration from this, feeling like 2012 would be the perfect year to release a line with a concept based on the word. Noticing the increasing popularity in the contemporary market, Jana wanted to create unique and special designs for today’s trendy urban girl. The modern collection consists of 31 styles of minaudieres, clutches and cross body bags. Clean silhouettes are enhanced by animal prints, foil treatments, embossed pythons and oversized locks. All the elements of the designs are reflections of what Judith loves; exotic skins with a twist of whimsy and dramatized ornaments. Overture products retail between $295 – $995, which is more affordable than Judith Leiber’s Couture line. Don’t be alarmed though, the strong detail and eternal aesthetics that Judith Leiber customers love is still very present in all Overture products. Looks like you don’t have to spend a fortune to look like a celebrity after all.
Overture Judith Leiber will be available at www.ShopBop.com, www.JudithLeiber.com, and Judith Leiber Boutiques.
