Judith Leiber Sunburst Clutch

Some of my personal favorite handbags are ones that so accurately capture a bygone era that they could probably be passed off as really fantastic vintage finds. So much in fashion is predicated on what has been done in the past that a designer deftly recreating the mood of a time period can show a great deal of skill, if done correctly.

And with all the glitz and glitter that’s popular for winter, I can’t help but think that the Judith Leiber Sunburst Clutch is totally disco-tastic.

Can’t you just see someone at Studio 54 wearing this with a super sleek Halston dress back in the day? I totally can. But I can also see a stylish woman carrying it today with a biker jacket over a minidress, tights and booties. And whether the piece is actually vintage or just vintage-inspired like this one, the test of how good it is if it can easily blend into looks from two different eras, and I think that this one accomplishes just that. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $2995.

      lmao …. girl stop! too funny! I just pictured that in my head, sitting there at the bar mad as h*ll. lolol

  • Shari

    Way too expensive for what it is. If I’m going to pay that much, at least I would get one of her other crazy bags. I agree with tadpolenyc that her other clutches are different, but at least they’d be conversation pieces.

    I’d rather think it’s more art deco than disco. I’m just sick of the 70’s and 80’s right now.

  • Debra Zak

    so beautiful, but who can afford this right now?


    What can I say it is Judith Leiber. Just love it.

  • Terri

    dacs is right when I saw it I thought of art deco not disco. It makes me think of the old Fred Astaire Ginger Rogers film Top Hat! Or even silent films of the 20’s Jean Harlow & Clara Bow.

    If I went to the oscars I’d take this one. (fb)
