Judith Leiber

This eponymous brand, founded in 1963, is most notable for its uniquely designed minaudières featuring eye-catching shapes ranging from cupcakes to polar bears to cat-napping felines. This fun and fabulous approach to the somewhat stale staple of the evening bag instantly captured the attention of every social butterfly. But Leiber’s exquisite craftsmanship stretches beyond the fanciful to the classic as well, with the Box Clutch forming the foundation of formal accessories. Her timeless elegance is undeniable, as is her playfulness.
