Judith Leiber Introduces Customizable Bags

Once again paving the way for iconic fashion, Judith Leiber couture has expanded the timeless, sophisticated range to introduce customizable options through their customizer tool. However, this trend is not a new phenomenon; Millennials are more interested in personalized accessories than ever before since Rag & Bone showcased their varsity jackets in Fall 2014.

The Judith Leiber collection now available is a luxury addition to the personalization market– and one which should not be missed on any account. Simply use our easy-to-use customizer tool, and create a bag that’s completely one-of-a-kind. With that in mind, let’s explore the new Judith Leiber handbags and just why you would want a customized bag.   

 

Why Customize a Bag?

 

The reasons to choose a customizable bag are plenty. What could the discernible consumer want more than something which is truly theirs? The answer is not much! Being able to carry a piece of your own personality is something which is worth so much more than the price tag alone. It’s a sense of individuality and a touch of elegance which sets every outfit apart from another. It’s also a greater sense of ownership which is alluring to all.

Customize With Your Initials, Name or Age

Customizing a Judith Leiber crystal clutch with your name, initials, or even age places a high sense of ownership onto it. You are telling the world: this is mine. What's more, you’re telling the world loud and proud: this belongs to me.

Carrying a customized purse shows the world who you are, and how proud you are to hold the bag with your name on it. There is no other purse in the world like it, and that is a thrilling realization as a customer orders, receives, and carries the clutch to the next event.       

For Special Occasions

Customizing a bag goes so much further than simply placing your name on a purse. There is no limit (within reason!) to how you can customize the new Judith Leiber purses. For a newlywed, opting to encrust the bag with crystals with your new surname is an extremely attractive prospect. But if you don’t want your surname, why not only“Mrs”? For someone celebrating a milestone birthday, choosing to feature the age is a fun, tongue-in-cheek gift, whether it’s 21, 30, 50, or even older!       

Brand Exposure

For a brand, however, offering customizable bags is another way to target the young generation. There’s no better publicity than providing personalized bags for those stars who will feature them across a vast number of online outlets, from social media to their personal blogs. A social media sensation, such as Kim Kardashian, carrying a customized Judith Leiber gets people talking. This talking translates into higher brand recognition, and it introduces the iconic Judith Leiber brand to new, younger audiences. As the younger, “selfie generation” are searching for unique accessories to show off on social media, customizable bags are the perfect way to make waves on social media platforms.

Who Has Worn It?

 

Judith Leiber has a legion of celebrity fans, and some of the most famous names through the 20thCentury have worn beautiful Judith Leiber evening bags at some point. However, while custom-made Judith Leiber purses are favored by stars such as Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner, the new personalized range is only just gathering interest.


One notable star who chose to customize her very own Judith Leiber clutch is the beautiful Blake Lively. This year’s Met Gala had the theme of “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” and while Blake chose a breathtaking red and gold gown, it was the purse she carried which got people talking.

Unfortunately, Blake’s husband, the inspiring and hilarious Ryan Reynolds, did not attend the event with her. Yet she made sure he was there in spirit. Her customized Judith Leiber purse not only perfectly embodied the Gala’s theme, but it also showed her family crest proudly to all who saw it. What’s more, it didn’t only feature Blake and Ryan: also featured in the family crest was the initial of the pair's daughters, James and Ines.

Crafted from luxury crystals, the Reynolds-Lively crest design featured a gold cross with four exquisite jewels, the initials B, J, I, and R at each point, above “Reynolds” displayed in black and gold crystals below. 

 

Final Thoughts

The future of accessories is customization. Who amongst us wouldn’t want to proudly display our name, family crest, or nickname on a luxury Judith Leiber clutch? With the introduction of the new customizable range, it’s now possible to create a truly unique accessory, crafted with only you in mind. It’s a beautiful addition to any closet, and it will take every outfit to the next level.
