Hot Trend: The Book Clutch

Fashionistas are calling it “librarian chic” and “beauties with brains”…ladies I bring you the “book-clutch”.

Olympia Le-Tan collection

These hard to come by clutches have been spotted in the hands of Michelle Williams and Natalie Portman. Designer Olympia Le-Tan was the first to come out with a variety of vintage looking covers – and her collection of twenty-four designs has practically sold out. And at $1140,00 each, these are definitely collectors items! I’ve seen a beautiful purple Great Gatsby one that I am dying to get my hands on *sigh*.

New York designer Kate Spade has also released a similar collection of book-clutches, as well as a magazine clutch that resembles a rolled up travel mag. Spade’s clutches, like this “Emma” clutch below, are around the $325 mark – tempted?
