The name Judith Leiber is synonymous with small, bejeweled evening bags called minaudières. Small by design, a minaudière is meant to be carried easily in the hand, containing only a few essential items. In Leiber's world, the essentials are a handkerchief, a lipstick and a hundred euro bill. This one is large enough for any smart phone and will actually hold more than enough for your night out.

Surprise your wife with an outstanding Judith Leiber piece on Christmas, Valentine’s Day and other occasions.

According to handbag historians, the minaudière was developed during the late 1920s when Charles Arpel (of Van Cleef & Arpels) noticed socialite Florence Gould using a cigarette case to hold her necessities. Arpel elaborated on this practical idea, creating small, decorated cases for the same purpose.
