Judith Leiber New Bean Satin Clutch

I remember being a little girl and always loving the evening bags my mother and grandmother had. They always seemed so elegant and graceful. Then as I grew older I began to take note of the evening bags used on television and in movies. Once again, elegance and grace was exuded. I felt all these same feelings when I came across the Judith Leiber New Bean Satin Clutch.


In fact, I was a bit surprised that this evening bag was a Judith Leiber creation. My eye always expects to see embellishments galore, but in this case, the embellishments are present, but slightly understated. The clear Austrian crystals in gorgeous settings adorn the top chain handle. I love the shade of blue satin used. It reminds me of the crystal clear blue colors in the Caribbean. The bag opens at the crystal-detailed kiss-lock closure. I completely welcome more Judith Leiber designs like this. Do you agree or do you prefer the more recognizable bags? Buy through Bergdorf Goodman for $1495.

    I prefer this to the all crystal clad clutches that they usually turn out. There is a bag that I ran across while browsing the web and it’s called the “LEIBER Dandelion Suede Gator Handbag” #16 on the list.
    It is a beautiful yellow color.

      NOTE: I DO NOT endorse this website nor do I shop there. I googled “most expensive handbags” and this site popped up. I went back and started browsing the site and noticed that it was about replicas. YUCK! :(-

    I like the iconic crystal clutches, but this is nice for more women.

    I like both types. With this bag I have a sense memory of the early 60’s and Jacqueline Kennedy or Audrey Hepburn. Classic & elegant.

    Love love love it!!! I like this simpler classic evening bag. Pity I don’t frequent gala events where I could take it out for a walk.

    Love it! This brand has the hottest evening bags!

    I like this much better than her crystal works of art. I would be too scared to carry one. This has a very vintage feel, and I love vintage.

    This bag I can see myself carrying, not Judith’s crystal clutches (which looks to be more of a display piece than anything). This is simple and so gorgeous. I love that blue color too, surely it adds a nice punch of color to the usual black and white formal dresses.
