Books in Fashion ~ Books are the New "IT" Bags



Who said books are not in fashion? Well, you need an update girl friend! In the era of technology, books have become a statement.


Clutch by Olympia Le-Tan
If you don't believe me, ask Natalie Portman who was spotted wearing a book clutch bag by French designer Olympia Le-Tan. These are very exclusive hand-stitched bags and Le-Tan only makes 16 samples of each design. One of these babies can set you back from €950 for a small version to €1090 for a larger one.
Clutch by Kate Spade


There is also the book clutch collection by New York designer Kate Spade. These bags are made of printed cotton twill under clear PVC and include 14-carat light gold plated hardware. To take one of these home you will have to cough up U$325.


Now, if you don't happen to have that kind of money lying around your bookshelves... You can check Etsy online store for more reasonable priced options or you can make your own! Check out this video of how to make one, but please make sure you don't ruin a vintage or collectors copy of anything. A book monster will haunt you if you do.
