Judith Leiber Karung Snakeskin Purse | Elegant Vintage Shoulder Bag

Posted on: Aug 24

If Hollywood has a queen of handbags, it's Judith Leiber. Her stunning purses have taken the red carpet outfits ofJudith Leiber snakeskin clutch Catherine Zeta Jones, Penelope Cruz and Cate Blanchett from the mundane to the magnificent.

This beautiful snakeskin purse is no exception. We've all seen our fair share of snakeskin handbags, but no one does them quite like Judith Leiber. The python is typically the snake of choice, but their scales are big and gaudy. Judith Leiber has created this purse using the karung snake, a variety with much smaller scales. But it doesn't just give a more delicate appearance. It's also more durable. This exquisite material falls in soft feminine folds.

This striking teal blue exterior is offset by gold hardware and a serpentine chain shoulder strap. But the real star is the snap lock closure. I've never seen a closure that was a feature, but then again I've never seen one made of jewels. This beautiful piece of hardware is studded with rose quartz, jade, carnelian, and lapis stones set in a delicate swirl design. Quite simple, it's amazing.

Sling this beautiful bag over your shoulder, or tuck the chain inside and carry it like a clutch. Whatever way you wear it, you're sure to make an impression!
