Don't judge a book by its cover





I just came across these cute clutches and I had had HAD to share! It's crazy how someone can come up with something so creative and unique yet still simple! How did anyone not think of this before?! These Olympia Le-Tan clutches - founded in France - that are designed to look like books on the outside are all handmade and come in different kinds of books by different authors. Each of them cost quite a lot because they are handmade, but I am yearning for one right about now! They each cost about 1,480 CAD! It can be seen worn by Natalie Portman on the red carpet (in the picture above) during the premiere of Black Swan. She is sporting the LOLITA book-clutch.

Some of the other designs include: 

  • Letters to a Young Poet book-clutch
  • Winner take nothing book-clutch
  • L'Arrache Coeur book-clutch
  • La Belle et la bette book-clutch
  • Moby Dick book-clutch
  • A street car named desire book-clutch
Unfortunately, the only place that these book-clutches can be bought within Canada is from Toronto at Hudson's Bay, The Room. Otherwise, you can order it online. You can even have your initials or name hand-embroidered onto the back! She is definitely a genius in my eyes.

Ahhhh... Love love love.

P.S. What do you think? Is it a HIT or a MISS?
