Judith Leiber's 'Butterfly Cake' Clutch: Quite Possibly, The Worst Way To Spend $7K
September 12, 2012
From $300 paper bags to a ring that is in all likelihood intended to be used for storing coke, it seems that the designers themselves might be on crack these days. But, today’s #WTF item really takes the cake – literally. Judith Leiber is hawking a $7,000 “Butterfly Cake Minaudiere,” and it might just be the ugliest thing we’ve ever seen. With its utterly ostentatious Austrian crystals and pastel enamel butterflies, this thing is definition gaudy. What’s more is that Neiman Marcus describes it as a “guilt-free indulgence.” Jokes. If you buy this thing you should feel guilty – guilty of a major crime against all that is beautiful and true in the fashion world.
