The French house Azzaro, now owned by
the Spanish private equity firm Reig Capital, has signed a deal to
produce handbags with Judith Lieber for spring 2008. Azzaro designer Vanessa Seward said, "they won’t be your typical jeweled minaudière, though both Azzaro and Lieber are known for their sparkle."
About her her next
clothing collection Seward commented, "I will be using some chiffon, and doing some
minidresses and bohemian shapes. One of my inspirations is ‘Sweet
Charity,’ with a bit of danger, of course."
