Bag a Beauty
Judith Leiber, the bag brand known for its fancy minaudières, has finally opened a stand-alone boutique in the Paragon, replacing The Link’s multi-label handbag boutique, Bagbar. It opens with a holiday-store concept, to be replaced by an official (and newly renovated store) early next year. Famous holders of these luxury clutches include Queen Elizabeth and former American first ladies, Mamie Eisenhower, Pat Nixon and Nancy Reagan - not a surprising list of wealthy women, considering the hefty price tag, from $2,900 for a jelly bag to $9,200, for crystal-encrusted versions. Cost aside, these sparkly babies never go out of style…
The Judith Leiber Holiday Store is at #01-31, Paragon Shopping Centre.
