Olympia Le-Tan Book Clutch

 

Thomas Mann ‘Zauberberg here as a slightly lighter diet in the form of a bay of Olympia Le-Tan.

What’s this? Looks like a novel or paperback, but is not a book. The riddle of the fashionable solution: What is deceptively genuine as the original cover of a first edition, is actually an embroidered bay bag of the Paris designer Olympia Le-Tan. With the fashionable eye-catchers, every woman can be seen and is guaranteed to be well-read.

Sheakspear’s “Merchant of Venice”, Boccaccio’s “Decamerone”, “The Leopard” by Giuseppe the Lampedusa or Herman Melville’s “Mobby Dick” – who carries one of the original Clutches and Minaudières from the collections of Olympia Le-Tan Fashion as in the intellectual choice of his reading exquisite taste. According to  fashionruling.com,  attractive first editions in the original language of the Parisian serve as a model for their hand-crafted, originally hand-crafted breeches. But also Lesestoff like Charles Guimont’s “Paris”, guidebook with clever, cheeky title statements like “Turn your Humor into Money” under the arm make themselves a good and funny companion on a walk – not just between the stands of the Bouquets on the banks of the Seine. They also served as inspiration for cookbooks, caviar sacks, milk cones, pills, furinifilms such as “8 1/2” or “La Dolce Vita”. Even jazz disc cover or songtitel turns it into handbags with special note. Le-Tan was a DJ in the fashionable nightclub Le Baron in Paris, which counts to Sofia Coppola, Marc Jacobs or Björk to his guests; At the after-show parties of Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga, Yves Saint Laurent or Azzedine Alaia.

Family Reunion

Olympia Le-Tan studied Italian literature in her native city of London before working as an intern, later as a stylist for Gilles Dufour – Karl Lagerfeld’s right hand – at Chanel. She went with him to Balmain and then worked for Dafours Label before she took the step to start her own business. The grandmother had given her the embroidery, the love of the 1940s / 1950s she shares with the mama and the enthusiasm for beautiful, antiquarian books she has grown from the father, the illustrator Pierre Le-Tan, in whose extensive library she grew up.

Bookworms on the Red Carpet

The young designer also discovered Hollywood for herself. The actress Tilda Swinton supposedly walked over the red carpet with a handy bed-cover at the film festival gala in Cannes. Her Le-Tan evening bag graced the famous children’s book “Ant & Bee”. Natalie Portman chose Vladimir Nabokov’s cult “Lolita” for the premiere of “Black Swan”, Clémence Poésy was wearing Jean Cocteau’s “La Belle et la Bête”. Michelle Williams was already seen twice with a Le-Tan Clutch: once with Arthur Miller’s “The Misfits”, then with JD Salinger’s “The Catcher in the Rye”. We are eagerly awaiting the premiere of the new adaptation of “The Great Gatsby”. Also to see who will carry F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel. The trendy Trendy handbag from the winter collection 2012/13 was sold out.

Exclusive Lovers

The designer’s coverts cov- ered as pocketbooks are covered with a fine Liberty cotton satin and hand-embroidered with silk yarn. Even the interior, lined with beautiful, fine, often floral fabrics, can be seen. Each handbag is numbered, marked with Olympias name label and limited to 16 pieces (the lucky number of her creator). It was only recently that she employed helpers in her little atelier next to her apartment. In the past, she embroidered all the parts by herself. This has its price: 1,140 euros costs such a piece of art to be made for several days. This does not slow down the demand for the hot literature bags. They go away like oven-warm baguettes and are sold out in their own online shop by Olympia Le-Tan or at Net-a-porter in no time. They also offer exclusive luxury boutiques and selected conceptstores such as The Corner in Berlin. On request, there are also custom-made products. But only of titles, the Olympia Le-Tan pleased. After being “blown away by the wind,” she is often asked in vain.
