Literal rather than metaphorical corners have been cut in this stylish Cut-Corner Minaudiere from Judith Leiber.
It gets its name not from shoddy craftsmanship but from its stylish angled corners. I really love the contemporary quirk they bring to what is otherwise a very traditional Judith Leiber minaudiere. Traditional never means staid in the case of Judith Leiber though. Gray Austrian crystals are arranged in an arabesque design, nestled amongst onyx pyramid studs. The onyx cabochon decorated push lock clasp sits proudly atop the polished metal frame.
This minaudiere is far from practical though. It's very small and slender, so you'll be lucky to fit even the essentials inside. There's also no strap, which may disappoint modern misses. Personally I think one would ruin the look, although there's no denying it would have made it a bit more functional. This is really a purse that works more as a statement piece, a work of art, rather than a convenient carry case.
And we pay the sort of price usually reserved for a work of fine art too, a mammoth $3495. My frugal side suggests that no purse should cost that much, but my fashion loving one knows that a Judith Leiber clutch has every right to command the big bucks.
