Judith and Gerson Leiber ~

Over The Top

“Judy shattered glass ceilings before glass ceilings were even a thing.” ~ Gerson Leiber

Famous for her iconic and revolutionary designs that marry glamour and sophistication with humor and whimsy, Judith Leiber broke many barriers that stood in her way as she rose to the top of her field.

“With her ability to make handbags from start to finish, she truly revolutionized the meaning of handbag craftsmanship in the U.S. Just about everything on her bags was done by hand, with a level of craftsmanship that has rarely been matched in the fashion world.”                                                                                       ~ Samantha De Tillio

Judith’s handbags have been declared objets d’art by Geoffrey Beene; and in the New York Times, Hilton Kramer, the paper’s former premier art critic, praised Gerson for his mastery and skill of composition and color. Harold Koda, former curator in charge of the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, wrote: “…there is a beautiful resonance of aesthetic interests between Judith and Gerson, especially in their mutual love of brilliant color and rigorous structure.”

Judith and Gerson Leiber ~ Over The Top features over 500 of Judith Leiber’s dazzling designs and a fabulous selection of Gerson Leiber’s magnificient Fashion paintings.
