Tres Chic

Inspired by vibrant and old book covers, Olympia Le-Tan launched her You Cant Judge A Book By Its Cover collection in September 2009. Her love of literature was a passion she shared with her father, French illustrator Pierre Le-Tan, and her talent for embroidery was inherited from her grandmother. Each clutch is handmade in France, lined with beautiful Liberty of London fabric, and limited to only 16 pieces per design. I would love to own any of these incredible book bags –  it would look so lovely sitting on my bookshelf when I am not carrying it!

* I don’t know about anyone else, but I would love to get my clutches on one of these clutches. All are chic beautiful accessories. Each purse is hand embroidered, which not only makes them unique, but even more stunning. Be still my bookaholic fashonista heart.
