How To Build The Ultimate Judith Leiber Handbag Wardrobe


Most of us can define our wardrobes by needs, occasions, and emotions. We have our everyday essentials, like the perfect white shirt and black leather jacket, that are always in rotation. Next are our work clothes, then our night out line-up and finally our showstoppers. Let’s talk about showstoppers. These are your “wheredidyougetthatIfeellikeamillionbucks” pieces like a vintage hot pink silk wrap dress or a fits-like-a-glove sequin mini from your trip to Florence. We believe that building a Judith Leiber handbag wardrobe follows the same blueprints as your clothing wardrobe. You have your evening essentials, day to night styles, and of course, your novelty bags and showstoppers. Here is our guide to creating the ultimate Judith Leiber handbag collection.

The Evening Essentials
Just like your white shirt and favorite pair of jeans, we recommend starting your Judith Leiber handbag collection with timeless and elegant essentials that work for every occasion that might come up on your calendar. These are the bags that go easily from weddings to charity galas to the opera. They are no-brainer stunners that you will have for a lifetime.  Judith Leiber clutches can always be counted on to look amazing and appropriate season after season. We think that bags in neutral metallic shades or black offer the most versatility. Some of our go-tos are our Slim Slide Clutch in Silver and Champagne Crystal and our Fizzoni Crystal Clutch in Black. We love the Ritz Fizz Clutch in Silver Crystal as well as the Envelope Black Crystal Clutch and Soho Black Satin Clutch.

Day To Night
These days fashion is less about day and night boundaries and more about making day to night a more fluid transition. Some days we go from work drinks to cocktail parties and need one handbag to do double duty. Our exotic bags, in luxurious cayman crocodile, fit the bill as the ultimate day to night bags. Our Soho Elaphe Clutch in Champagne, with its metallic hue, graphic lines and semi-precious closure is a can’t go wrong choice. Our Crocodile Clutch in Black has clean lines and a cool semi-precious closure for the same effect. They are understated enough for work meetings and birthday lunches but are also spot on for a cocktail party, dinner date or even a wedding. We also think our crystal patterned handbags do the day-to-night job to perfection. Our Seamless Leopard is fun with jeans, but the sparkling handset crystals also keep it in formal territory. The Fizzoni Stripes Clutch combines timeless stripes with wearable colors and sparkling handset crystal for a beautiful effect. 

From a sparkling Ice Cream Sundae to a glittering Swan, Judith Leiber novelty bags are iconic. These one-of-a-kind handbags not only grace the hands of many of the world’s biggest celebrities, but they are often considered works of art. Many of our most devoted customers have collections of Judith Leiber novelty bags that they received from their mothers, grandmothers and other family members. These are accessories and heirlooms. Purchasing a Judith Leiber novelty bag speaks to the emotional side of your handbag wardrobe. Maybe you want to show off your love of animals with our Hedgehog bag or your passion for photography with our Camera clutch. We have novelty bags that defy imagination from Fairy Tale Castles to the Classic Hamburger with all the fixins’. These bags are dazzling, fun, whimsical and are always conversation pieces. 

The Showstopper
These are the bags you pull out when you want to make a fashion statement. Whether you are wearing jeans and sneakers or a slinky evening gown, our showstopping handbags reflect peerless design, creative imagination and a distinct fashion sense. Our No Limit black card handset crystal clutch is bold, witty and can be personalized so everyone knows who it belongs to. We love its rebellious spirit and it is destined to get a million compliments. Another Insta-worthy clutch is our Eclipse bag. Unique chunky crystals resemble cut glass and it is hard to look away at the beauty of this bag. It is sparkling to the max and it will remain a conversation piece for years to come. Our Serpent Snakeskin Clutch is another statement piece. At the centerpiece is a bold crystal-studded snake that resembles a vintage brooch. It is affixed to a snakeskin clutch and comes together in a way that feels appropriate for a classic starlet like Lauren Bacall or a modern ingenue like Jennifer Lawrence or Zoe Kravitz.
