Judith Leiber’s £5,000/ £8,000 rhinestone embellished jaguar clutch

Judith-leiber-clutch

As soon as you hear the words "Judith Leiber clutch", you know you're talking about serious money. Like, "you could buy a second-hand car for that" kind of money.

Would you pay it, though?

This jaguar clutch bag icon is covered in crystals and costs $5,015/$8,000, so even if we DID take it out somewhere we'd probably spent the whole night worrying about either losing it or being mugged. And on balance, we think we'd rather have the car.

What about you, though? Do you think this kind of thing is worth saving up for, or splashing out for if you happen to have a spare £5,000 burning a hole in your pocket? If you do, you can get it at Net-a-Porter icon.

    It’s very pretty. I’d buy it just to put it on my shelf and stroke it. Alas.. I am poor.

    Oh I love it so, so much. I wonder what it would be like to live in world where I could afford it?
    I have a little jaguar ring with tiny teeny diamonds and sapphires that would coordinate perfectly with it.
    Bag envy. I haz it.

    I love this clutch, just the shape of the jaguar is amazing!! I’m sorry NJ, but I really want to see what the knock offs look like!
    Dear Fashion Police, can you let me know where to find cheap structured bags like this one???

    If I had the sort of cash on had it would take to be able to even think about buying that, it would be mine in a heartbeat!
    It’s hideously expensive, but absolutely gorgeous.

    I agree with you guys, I love it too and I wish that purchasing something like that wasn’t just a distant dream!
    I particularly like that it isn’t symmetrical; if you look at it on the site you can see shots from other angles and I love that it has a tail on the other side and that its paw is down.
    So elegant!

    I’d never spend that kind of money on it, but it is devastatingly gorgeous.
