A couple of weeks ago, I posted about Kate Spade’s line of literary accessories. Today, I saw an article in the LA Times book blog about the new “book-bag.” The collection, called “You Can’t Judge a Book by its Cover,” is designed by Olympia Le Tan, a French fashion designer. It is her first collection of bags. They became all the rage after Natalie Portman carried one at the NY Black Swan premiere.
The bags are designed to look like replicas of classic novels and look very close to the real thing. I would LOVE to own one of these. Here are more photos of the bags (images from purple DIARY):
Would you carry one of these? Which book would be your favorite?
