Designer Deals: Judith Leiber Python Beaded Tassel Clutch

Judith Leiber Python Beaded Tassel Clutch

I was doing my Saturday browsing around my favorite sites and came across this ridiculously beautiful Judith Leiber clutch. Isn’t she fabulous?! Crimson red python with gunmetal hardware and beaded tassel. It’s all in the details! Black, ruby and purple stones dot the gunmetal closure. It has a detachable chain strap and envelope style flap front with hidden magnetic closure. Purple satin lines the interior, along with two compartments and one flat pocket. Best of all, it’s brand new and going for a fraction of the price! Retail was $3995, price: $995.00 at Jill’s Consignment.

Handbags for a Cause: Kent Stetson Black Lives Matter Clutch

Kent Stetson Black Lives Matter Clutch

I first saw Kent Stetson’s Black Lives Matter clutch on Instagram (you must follow @kentstetson), and couldn’t wait to feature it on HR! I absolutely love this clutch for a couple of reasons – (1) it was designed to spread peace and awareness; (2) I love the eye popping yellow and multi-color interior flap; and (3) 25% of the proceeds will be donated to the Black Lives Matter Organization. #BlackLivesMatter is an online forum intended to build connections between Black people and our allies to fight anti-Black racism, to spark dialogue amongst Black people, and to facilitate the types of connections necessary to encourage social action and engagement. 

The Black Lives Matter clutch is handmade in the USA, comes with a removable cross-body chain, logo dust bag, clear vinyl inner pocket and is individually signed. Price: $205.00 at KentStetson.com.

Designer Spotlight: Kent Stetson

I discovered these amazing clutches on Instagram, and was immediately intrigued with the designer behind the bags. Who is he? What inspired his bold and whimsical designs? How is each bag made? I wanted to know more and see more! Kent Stetson creates stunning, cutting-edge handbags by merging traditional craft techniques with high-technology equipment and materials. After studying at Brown University, Stetson took an interest in new media and hybrid digital/traditional fine art. In 2003, as a framing experiment, he presented one of his digital paintings as a handbag, and has since made bags for collectors all over the world. By blurring the line between art and fashion he wants to in some small way inspire people to live beautifully. Mission accomplished!

I saw the Peacock Clutch (one of my favorites!) up close and it is every bit as fabulous as I expected. I can honestly say that it was hand crafted to perfection. What I love and appreciate most about Kent Stetson’s collection is that each clutch has a personality of its own. They are statement pieces that will always be a conversation starter. All bags come with a removable cross-body chain, logo dust bag, clear vinyl inner pocket, and are individually signed. Price includes shipping. All of my favorite clutches are pictured below.
