Must-Have: Judith Leiber’s FEED 1000 Clutch And How to Wear It

As I mentioned yesterday, a Judith Leiber clutch is a must-have for any woman’s wardrobe.  The company is closing in on almost 50 years and is a go-to for the finest in women’s accessories. Judith Leiber was born in Budapest, Hungary and studied the art of handbag-making during World War II. She immigrated to the United States with her husband in 1947 and finally launched her own company in 1963. Her pieces are sophisticated, stylish and classic and some of her famous fans include Halle Berry, Kristin Davis, Kim Cattrall, Eva Mendes, Sarah Jessica Parker and many more.

Judith Leiber has collaborated with FEED on the FEED 1000 clutches which will provide 1000 school meals for children through the UN World Food Programme’s School Feeding initiative. The clutches are so elegant and sophisticated, in true Judith Leiber fashion: crafted from metallic linen with ornate beading on the front and the FEED 1000 logo on the back. They show that giving back is indeed fashionable and the collaboration is the start of FEED truly tapping luxury designers.

Here is how I would wear the clutch for Spring.

With such an intricately beaded clutch, simple yet chic accessories are needed. Wilt’s Angle Tank Dress ($121) is relaxed perfection and you will be able to wear it everywhere from the office to a walk on the beach. I love unique jewelry and Unearthen’s Sand Necklace ($205) is understated, yet unlike anything I have seen before. You can never go wrong with Fendi and the Crisscross Napa Booties ($965) work for warm weather as well as for Fall, with tights.

Judith Leiber’s FEED 1000 Clutch retails for $495. Visit www.bergdorfgoodman.com to purchase and www.feedprojects.com for more information.
