    Judith Leiber Limited Edition by Andrew Gn Black Leather and Green Python Evening Bag
    Excellent Condition
    10" Width x 6.5" Height x 1" Depth, 7.5" Shoulder Drop

    This unbelievable Judith Leiber Limited Edition by Andrew Gn evening bag is a show stopper. Gn is originally from Singapore and started his design career in Paris as an assistant at Emanuel Ungaro after graduating university. In 1997, he was chosen to be Artistic Director of the House of Balmain's ready-to-wear and accessories collections (where Oscar de La Renta did haute couture), but his debut collection was met with much criticism, ending with a termination of contract. Since then, his solo collections have been extremely well-received and Gn has a huge fanbase in Japan. The bag has a lift clasp closure with gunmetal hardware. The top exterior of the bag is done in stingray, accented directly below it with a shell form design done in green python. There is a black tassel with gunmetal hardware on the front of the bag. The interior is done in metallic gold leather and has one slip pocket.

    This bag is in Excellent Condition. There is minor scratching to the hardware throughout.
