Haute Designer: Robin Lee Simmons

I discovered the rlee Collection on MySpace and have been an admirer ever since. Originally from Los Angeles, Robin Lee Simmons, owner and designer of the rlee Collection, created her first handbag line in 2001 called boo Studio, titled after the nickname of her driving force…her son, Park. Over the years it has grown into a Multi-Accessory Collection including bags and stunning jewelry. Exquisitely designed using the finest quality satin, Italian leather, eco-friendly hemp & bamboo, vintage fabrics, as well as stunning, genuine feathers including ostrich, coque & peacock. Each handbag has a hand-beaded handle that is a bit of jewelry all on it’s own consisting of acrylic & glass to gemstones. The rlee Collection offers custom order, special occasion feather handbags that can be dyed to match any color…the perfect gift for any bride, bridesmaid or fashionista! All work is done in Robin Lee’s studios around Charleston, S.C. Her handbags have been featured in several major fashion magazines and coveted by some of your favorite celebrities, including Christina Applegate and Lucy Liu. Below are two beautiful handbags from the latest rlee Collection.
