Talented fashion designer and parisian Dj, Olympia Le-Tan has designed a series of 21 handbags (limited to 16 a piece) that feature impeccable embroidered recreations of book covers from first-edition novels like Moby Dick, La Belle et la Bête, and Lolita. The collection is appropriately titled, “You Can’t Judge A Book By It’s Cover,” and is inspired by Le-Tan’s affection for collecting old books. Each clutch is handmade out of Liberty print lining, felt appliqué and silk thread for the embroideries, and colorful canvas for the base.
“I was thinking there were all these beautiful books around and they were being forgotten with everybody on the Internet, so I made it so that you can carry them around,” said Olympia. Since 2010 she developed new accessories like milk box bags, mini-cases for i-pad, and satchels.
My favorite is Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert. Perfect to make a subtle geek touch. Hype and cute !
