Fashion designer Olympia LeTan has produced a series of 21 handbags that feature embroidered reproductions of first edition classic novels. The collection aptly named 'You cant judge a book by its cover' was inspired by the designers passion for collection old books. Each bag is lined in Liberty print, has felt applique and is embroidered with silk thread. Delicious.
The bags are currently on sale in Parisian powerhouse Collette....LOVE that shop. Last time I was there they were showcasing Barbie Dolls dressed by various legends such as shop regular Karl Lagerfeld. All kinds of ace.
