Judith Leiber: Eye-popping Bags

When I first eyed Judith Leiber's crystal embellished, hand-crafted bags some years back, like many others I was totally awe-struck. Though I can ill-afford these super-expensive bags, there is no reason that I cannot feast my senses and appreciate their aesthetic appeal and quirky shapes.

Statistics say that these bags have been to so many parties that probably you and many of us jointly have not attended. The whimsical shapes and magnificent craftsmanship of these bags have made them regulars at red carpet events with stars and celebrities. The stone encrusted bags in the shape of peacock, cat, dog, heart, owl, rose, rabbit, fish etc are crafted with meticulous detail and loaded with unmatched style.

You may love them or just hate them-- but you can't ignore them.

Budapest-born Judith had launched her line in 1963 and since then she has added splendid jewellery, belts, eye wear, key chains, pill boxes etc to her kitty. Interestingly, she has brought out Gnaesh and Maharaj clutches, eyeing a chunk of evolving Indian market.
