Olympia Le-Tan: Dizzie Bag

Some of the newest additions to the Olympia Le-Tan family include these cute, vinyl circular bags entitled 'Some of my Favourite Good Things to Eat' in your choice of three different colours.I like the subtle colour used against the main and predominant colour which is blue in this case but the black bag is the most appealing of the trio to me and something which is a little more usable with my daily routine.  

Colour: Blue
Embroidered canvas round shoulder strap bag with brass zip and Liberty print lining
DIAMETER: 17.5 cm WIDTH: 4.5 cm 490 euros.

Then again, I do like the cheery shade of red used for this small bag, the use of three different fonts in three different sizes as well as the gold brass zipper. I was always drawn to this particular shade of red as a child and it would look rather becoming with some loose hanging mid-calf socks, brogues as well as a navy floral printed dress. It seems that this red bag may be the most popular variation since it has the lowest numbers but really I would be happy with any creation by Olympia Le-Tan to call my own.

Her clutches and bags are as surprising and as lovely as the girl that makes them; Olympia Le-Tan and her family have been described as interesting, creative and with quirk, a statement which I completely agree with. Her own personal style is unique without being outlandish and her meticulous detail and kooky fashion sense translates perfectly when crafting her goods. Olympia and her sister Cleo own a studio at the quiet Japanese corner of the second arrondissment in Paris. The sisters grew up just a few blocks away with their siblings and father, celebrated illustrator Pierre Le-Tan. Perhaps the influence of her father persuaded Olympia to recreate book covers using felt and embroidered stitching to celebrate the artwork and design that may fade with the rising computer age engulfing the world.
