Spotlight on: Judith Leiber

June 23, 2008

There’s something about a night on the town that makes you want to sparkle from head to toe. Women attempt this in many ways: Shimmering jewelry, bronzing powder and metallic accessories are your standard fare, but if you really want to make an impact, head straight to Judith Leiber. Known for her crystal-embellished creations, Leiber is synonymous with glitzy minaudieres that pack quite a bit of personality. To wit: Her brand new Cupcake bag, above, retails for around $4,200 and revels quite a bit about the wearer’s sense of humor.
Want more witty accessories in this designer’s cache? Provence (above, $5,995) turns crystals into a beautifully wrapped bunch of asparagus, while Pineapple (below, $5,494) mimics the real thing in shades of golds and greens. 
If you’re looking for sophistication without quite so much whimsy, Leiber also offers a wide array of bags in exotic skins, leathers, satins and beads. Portero is lucky to carry a generous selection of Judith Leiber in a rainbow of colors and styles. I’m particularly taken with this Full bead gold crystal version that feels like a night at the disco, and this Vintage Oversized Mauve Crocodile clutch that screams luxe without being quite so “look at me.”
