Perusing the Judith Leiber Resort 2012 offerings now available for advanced order on Moda Operandi is almost soothing. In the giant, endless parade of new ideas that is the fashion industry, Leiber’s commitment season after season to the company’s whimsical crystal-encrusted evening bags are a shelter in the storm. You know what you’ll find, even if you’re not sure exactly how it will take shape.

For Resort 2012, the theme is…resorts. See? Pleasantly straight-foward. There are shell clutches as well as a few box minaudieres named after famous streets in American resort towns (and inexplicably, one named after a mall in Atlanta). The collection also include a full line of evening bags dedicated to the twelve signs of the zodiac, perfect for the astrology nut in your life. (But seriously, Mercury Retrograde is not something to mess with.) If you have a Moda Operandi membership, you can pre-order the bags there until July 28th. If not, we have more highlights from the collection after the jump.

    I find it very funny that the first one that caught my eye is the blue Gemini clutch since that’s my sign.
    They’re all pretty cool. Judith’s designs are pretty as usual.

    That Capricorn clutch is making me drool! I love all things Zodiac, and this bag is just beautiful. If only I had the bank account balance to make it mine…

    These are some of the most wearable Judith Leiber purses I’ve ever seen! The feature one is just adorable, as is the one with the coral stones.

    The graphic printed clutch is beautiful. I have such an appreciation for Judith Leiber after seeing her at LACMA for a Costume Council event.
