I wonder if the "It Girls" she styles will carry her handbags?

OK with me ... I guess it would need to be a limited edition, though, as there's not much of her ... There wouldn't even be enough for all of her most famous clients

I'm curious to see it but like other said I think the name "Mac Daddy" alone would be enough to make me not want to buy it. But I honestly don't think most of the handbags would be that bad, just drastically overpriced.

Although I also do think it odd that she used such exotic animal leather for her bags. I don't eat meat, but I wear leather, although I try and keep it a a minimum of a few very used items. But python ? And lizard ? just thinking of a lizard bag makes my skin crawl.

You know how vintage alligator bags sometimes have the head and feet included? I was thinking this could be done with the "Rachel" bag, and you could prop your giant shades on the nose ... what do you think?

i'm sorry, i don't see the point...
the bags that judith leiber designs are fine...
why add the "rachel zoe" name?
Cleary the "vegetarian" label is to further limit her food intake...I highly doubt she cares about the animals.

Anyways, I don't mind her...I think she was successful, and her reign will be over soon! These bags will be interesting to see, but I kind of have a feeling they will be too "over the top" for us everyday folk ...

They sound iffy. It will look either amazing, or totally tacky.

This month's US Vogue previewed Derek Lam's bag collection, and judging from the description of Rachel Zoe's designs, I think they may bear some resemblance to Lam's bags--the snake closures especially.

On a different note, I am quite surprised by how gaudy Derek Lam's accessories turned out. Why sing praises of the '80s when your clothes are known to be young and sweet?
