Fashionable bookworms everywhere from LA to Paris are obsessed with French designer Olympia Le-Tan. Inspired by vintage book jackets and covers, Le-Tan, who once worked for Karl Lagerfeld, revives classics like Doctor Zhivago, Lolita, and The Belle Jar with her elegant book clutches and minaudières. Well-read carriers include Natalie Portman, Tilda Swinton, Diane Kruger, and, most recently, Michelle Williams, who carried the clutch version of The Catcher in the Rye to the Film Independent Spirit Awards.
