Summary note:
An admitted bookworm, designer Olympia Le-Tan is best known for creating one-of-a-kind handbags resembling literary classics such as 'Catcher in the Rye', 'Doctor Zhivago', and 'For Whom the Bell Tolls'. The book is designed to look like a bag that looks like a book. It invites the reader to discover the scope of the multifaceted French designer's creations from her signature minaudieres to her quirky ready-to-wear line and seemingly endless collaborations with fellow artists and designers. Born in London and raised in Paris, Le-Tan got her sartorial debut at the age of nineteen. After working with Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel and Gilles Dufour at Balmain she has earned the image of a prolific designer and worldly collector with a finger on the pulse of fashion. This book offers a playful and autobiographical glimpse into the world of Le-Tan and the inspirations behind her eclectic designs. Filled with candid photographs and charming illustrations, the book presents a whimsical look into one of the most creative designers on the scene today.
