Judith Leiber Couture has announced a limited-edition collaboration with Lucasfilm, featuring two novelty clutches inspired by R2-D2 from the 'Star Wars' films.

The "Star Wars" x Judith Leiber Couture collab reimagines the droid in two colorways:

  • Classic with 9,000 crystals in shades of chalk white, cobalt blue, jet black and sapphire; and

  • Gold with 9,000 24-karat gold-plated crystals,

“I have always loved R2-D2’s endearing personality. There is so much joy and nostalgia attached to the character,” says Jana Matheson, chief creative officer, Judith Leiber Couture. “Judith Leiber Couture and ‘Star Wars’ are a perfect match; R2-D2 is timeless, whimsical and charming, similar attributes to that of our minaudieres.”

The "Star Wars" x Judith Leiber Couture collaboration is available online at and in-store at Bergdorf Goodman, Harrods, Lane Crawford, Neiman Marcus, Net-A-Porter, Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue.
