LA based costume designer Colleen Atwood's on screen accomplishments are just about as impressive as it gets. She is the multiple BAFTA and Oscar award winning visionary responsible for the costumes in Alice in Wonderland, Memoirs of a Geisha and Chicago, to name a few, and now she is bringing her talents to a luxe bag line, which hits stores today.

Atwood's eponymous line is steeped in luxury and vintage touches and ranges from an evening-ready pochette to lizard skin backpacks. Unexpected hues like bright orange and a buttery rich cognac calfskin, bring a fresh twist to the mostly traditional shapes and definitely include Atwood's attention to detail.

The handbag line ranges from $1000 to $5000 and is available at A'Maree's in Laguna Beach and , and also on Atwood's site,
