Ok, we all know that Natalie Portman, a Harvard graduate, is supposedly intelligent and many intelligent people read books. But come on, did she really have to carry that book, Lolita by Vladmir Nabakov to a premier of the movie Black Swan?

Hahaha. Well, this is not an ordinary book, but actually a clutch bag from a French brand called Olympia Le-Tan. Olympia Le Tan is an innovative French brand that exclusively designs clutches inspired by book covers. These beautifully handmade clutches can be a very unique fashion statement when matched together with an elegant dress.


Among with the novel “Lolita”, Olympia Le-Tan makes clutches and bags with some other famous covers of books such as the “Catcher in the Rye”, “For Whom the Bell Tolls”, “Moby Dick”, “The Pearl”, and many more. Unlike their quite inexpensive appearance, these purses are hand-stitched from France and comes in a limited edition of 16 per piece. So far, the brand had released only 21 types, so they have 336 bags total on sale. Due to their rarity and hand-craftsmanship, a single clutch costs over $1330!

On the left, you can see a book full of gorgeous Olympia Le-Tan clutches! The brand releases clutches with usually their 1st edition book cover, which attributes to the classiness of the clutch. If you are a book lover, this bag is definitely for you!
