Conte out Lieber in
Posted 07 August 2003 - 01:50 PM
What I want to say is that everybody can add Swarovski crystals to a heart shaped solid or a puppy or whatever, there's no need to engage a high end designer.
On the other side: Which other desgn can be done for solids e.g. for the Circus theme, the Fantasy theme, and so on ?
Does anybody have any idea ? Speculations ?
As said: very very interesting !

When EL went with Jay Strongwater his designs did not "go with" what was already done so maybe JL's will not either. A whole new look.
But from what I have seen of her work it is like the older solids pre-Conte so maybe EL is going back to that ( the jeweled fruit etc).
And maybe since JL will be making hundreds of solids not just a one of a kind handbag the price can be reasonable.

I think the JL designs will be totally different just like Strongwater's, I also think the price point will remain in the $150-$300 range.
They will most likely all be Neiman Marcus exclusives.
I am going to email from the JL site and see what response I get.
Either way I am excited!
Going to go check out the shoes now- it's about that time that I get a new pair!!!

If I write the name correctly, I actually find a lot
Thanks Ann, with reading fast the difference from the way of writing to the other one, was for me not noticeable
You are right Uma, the name (written correctly or wrongly) sound both really very German. The wrong way written would have been the nicer name

What would be very exciting if JL kept some kind of control over them and didn't let EL sell them in warehouse sales flooding the market.
CC stores don't bother me just the EL warehouse sales that sell them for pennies on the dollar.
And don't even get me started on prototypes that make it to ebay.

I don't think JL would have that control over EL but let's hope I am wrong and she does!!
I think from JL I would like to see a solid that was a powder compact it would open just as the powder compact would and it would have a mirror and a little puff, the compact would be a jeweled design and the solid would be under the mirror.
I think we need to start the guessing of next years solids!!
Before we start let me say my first guess is a riverboat!

Would like to see a coca-cola can covered with stones. Animals are always good too.

That rose bag is to die for.
The small pill boxes are $370 each!!
Neiman Marcus always has the most solids, 9 this year!!
We are all in trouble!!!!!

I really don't care who designs them if they are wonderful to look at and the cost is reasonable.

Do you have any idea how long Conte has been designing for Estee Lauder, and what his feelings are on this change? I had heard he was disturbed when they brought Jay Strongwater on, but that could have been a rumor.
Now I'm going to go study my Fantasy Flower. If any will fall apart, it probably will be mine.

Oh well! Guess I'll have to wait and see what happens!

The Humpty Dumpty Pillbox is very funny
And yes Liliane,the wrong written name sounds better(oder w‰re mir "Lieber" ).
Have all a sunny nice day Uma
