Olympia Le-Tan: Mini Malette

From the brilliant and creative mind of Olympia Le-Tan comes chic clutches and bags disguised as classic novels, such as works by Tennessee Williams and Arthur Miller. There’s even bags in the shape of milk cartons if you’ve never been a great fan of literature and reading. The embroidered clutches and bags are designed by French designer Olympia Le-Tan and are handmade with love care, and maybe even a tiny pinch of pixie dust. I’m dying to get my hands on one for myself, but they carry a lofty price, some hundreds of Euros for a single clutch. While I could never be creative enough to justify such a purchase, it would be lovely to call one of these clutches disguised as a book all my own. With my morals though, I would most likely force myself to know the plot, characters and setting of the book from which my clutch was inspired both thoroughly and inside-out in case I was ever asked on the subject of the bag. I can’t think of anything more embarrassing than someone catching me out on not knowing about a book- especially when I have a product in its image.

This is one of the more accessible of the bags and clutches price-wise from Olympia Le-Tan- and that's better is the use of soft brown leather as well a a top handle strap, the cute size and material book cover detail show on the side. The mini case is a pint-sized bag that can protect such valuables as your small laptop or iPad stylishly with vintage chic.

My favourite colour is dark green, the use of contrasting light pink and the fancy script font on the cover. I love the contrast between a neatly stitched skyline of the city, the black and white clothes of the boy and girl and her skirt and shoes- but it's really the pink font of 'Magic!' that has caught my eye the most.
