Go beyond the safe, tried and tested style paths and leave your comfort zone to be able to fully appreciate the whimsical vibes of the latest Judith Leiber clutch bag collection for spring summer 2012.

Though fashion is commonly considered to be a form of art, the pure focus on artistry and creating museum worthy pieces is rarely seen in the fashion industry. Still , Judith Leiber has become a brand known for being able to do just that season after season. Memorable, utterly luxurious and always spectacular, the handbags and handmade minaudieres are always a spectacular presence destined to be cherished and proudly displayed every single time.

From conventional designs brought to the next level with the help of fabulous gemstones and incredible focus on details, the notion of uniqueness really comes into play in each collection. Thinking out of the box and selecting unusual shapes and challenging the notion of what's acceptable and flattering has become a routine for the brand which always manages to impress us with the masterpieces that everyone is buzzing about.

From color selection to detailing, every aspect is carefully customized to style perfection. From gold and crystal which aim to give the uber luxurious vibe to the designs to the bold tones that aim to be the main focal point of every outfit, the selection is fairly varied and absolutely awe inspiring. Fun and bubbly, serious and refined and a combination between the two are the main style perspectives embraced for the spring/summer 2012 collection.

Whether you plan on 'settling' for the traditional shapes and sizes or you're planning to go for something a little more exotic like a rooster, a clam or an over the top bee hive, there will always a little something to draw your attention and make you fall in love with the amazing craftmanship, the gorgeous details or simply the designs as whole. The classy, imaginative designs will definitely put a smile on your face every single time.
