From the famed lines of the Magnolia Bakery to bite-size vegan cakes at Sprinkles, cupcake boutiques have become a longstanding trend and have taken the place of high tea for fashionistas, celebrities, and trendsters alike. Naturally, the queen of gemlike minaudières, Judith Leiber, has joined the movement for decadent edibles and for spring, debuts a line of cupcake-inspired clutches.
For the most discriminating palate of taste and fashion, Leiber offers the minaudières in two succulent flavors: mocha and strawberry. Both purses are a guiltless dessert, but carry an equally indulgent price tag at $4,295 each. They are available for purchase at Leiber’s shop on 680 Madison Avenue in New York City.
Like many of Leiber’s iconic creations, the cupcake mini-clutches are the ultimate conversation piece. Your friends will instantly spot it as a Leiber, but be prepared to divulge: “who has the best butter cream icing?”
