NEW YORK — Red-carpet season has been good to Judith Leiber.
So good, in fact, that the handbag company has seen a 35 percent spike in the number of celebrities — Michelle Williams, Natalie Portman, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer and Laura Dern among them — toting the signature structured evening bags. At the Emmy Awards last month, 34 actresses carried bags from the collection, up from just 12 in 2009, and the Golden Globes saw 23 actresses carrying Leiber bags, up from 14 two years ago. Nearly 20 carried Judith Leiber at the Screen Actors Guild Awards — and the jury is still out for the Independent Spirit Awards and the Oscars, both of which take place this weekend.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
