Judith Leiber Asscher, Handbag of the Day
Many of Judith Leiber's designs are quirky little creations that wouldn't appeal to most. Her Dora fish is cute, but might make a grown women feel a bit like a child. But this one I like. The Asscher is a compact evening bag with a large Austrian crystal placed front and center. Surrounded by even more crystals, the bag resembles a great, big diamond glowing against a field of black. Lined in satin with a detachable chain, the bag measures 3.5" square and is 1.5" deep. $2695.
