Current Obsession: Book Clutches

Olympia Le-Tan and Kate Spade have recently released book inspired clutches, which I absolutely love.

Olympia Le-Tan makes the clutches out of fabric and the covers are embroidered. placed these whimsical clutches on their "future collectibles" list.   They have been carried on the red carpet by Clemence Poesy and Natalie Portman.  One was also spotted by fashion blog Jak & Jil at fashion week:

Kate Spade's books are made of printed fabric with a plastic overlay.  Her classic covers have modern graphics and her signature bright colors and fun linings.

The drawback to these fabulous book clutches?  Their price points: $1,245 for an Olympia Le-Tan and $325 for a Kate Spade.  I'm determined to figure out how to make one myself.

Penguin has released some beautiful hardcover copies of their classic books, like "Alice in Wonderland", "The Odyssey", and "Little Women", as well as classic children's books.  You can find them on Amazon or in some Anthropologie stores.  I've purchased the "Wuthering Heights" copy, seen above, with hopes of turning it into a clutch.  I'll let you know how it goes!
