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 !
