Judith Leiber & Ashley Longshore Unveil Second Collaboration
The Follow-up Collection Features Three New Limited-edition Minaudieres
Judith Leiber, an American luxury brand, reveals its new novelty clutches in collaboration with pop artist, Ashley Longshore. As with the first capsule, the handbags were designed in partnership with Judith Leiber’s Creative Director and Co-owner Dee Ocleppo Hilfiger.
“We’re thrilled to once again work with Ashley Longshore, whose provocative artwork is an intersection of pop culture and social issues captured in a unique and satirical way,” said Dee Ocleppo Hilfiger. “Each clutch is inspired by one of her existing pieces and amplified with thousands of Swarovski crystals in Judith Leiber’s signature style.”
“I am enthralled, excited and so happy to be collaborating with Judith Leiber for a second time. The world needs these sparkling, happy, fun conversation pieces now more than ever,” said Ashley Longshore. “Much more than just a handbag, these limited edition works of art hold a story. My new collection is about optimism, the power of a gesture, and a bold statement about a woman’s power to make her own money.”
The minaudières in the new collection include, “I’ll Pick Up the Tab,” “Optimism for the Win,” and “War and Peace for the Ladies.”
I’ll Pick Up the Tab
Made in Italy, this disc-shaped bag consists of over 13,000 crystals set by hand. A special coating of clear crystals brings out the details of the hand-painted dollar bill.
Optimism for the Win
This rectangular clutch, featuring more than 13,000 crystals in 18 varieties, boasts a bold and sexy message. As a result of over 40 hours of handwork, the bag reflects perfectly in any light, creating a crystal effect.
War and Peace for the Ladies
This special piece, which took a year to produce, was constructed using engineering methods inspired by a knight’s armor. The articulated index finger, hinged naturally at the joint, was created with 10,000 handset crystals in 54 unique shapes.
The collection will be sold on AshleyLongshore.com starting November 20, 2020. During this exclusive pre-sale period, customers will receive a 12×12 Ashley Longshore painting with each purchase. The collaboration arrives on JudithLeiber.com on November 30, 2020.
