We’ve spotted her whimsical and quirky clutch designs carried by stylish celebrities like Tilda Swinton, Natalie Portman, Michelle Williams and Clémence Poésy on the red carpet numerous times. Olympia Le-Tan weaves her magic by re-imagining classic literature book covers into exquisite fashion accessories and she goes a similar route for her latest collection – this time in collaboration with Disney©.
For this artisanal collection, the French designer references some of the greatest animation classics from Disney© such as Peter Pan, Snow White, Alice in Wonderland and Sleeping Beauty. The Book Clutch, Victoire and Dizzie bags boast of Le-Tan’s signature touches: intricate hand-embroidery, beautiful lining in Liberty-print poplin and whimsical imagery. The self-taught artist found new joy in old favourites as she worked on each piece. “Making these bags was such a lovely adventure, like a little girl’s dream come true,” Le-Tan said. “I had to re-watch all my favourite childhood films, I had forgotten how amazing they are.”
Fans of Disney© and vintage classics or fashionistas wanting a dash of nostalgia to their wardrobe, will want to grab hold of them quickly as there is a limited number of these handcrafted pieces. There are only 77 pieces of the extremely popular Book Clutch, available at Passage des Deux Pavillons in Paris and online at olympialetan.com and NET-A-PORTER.COM. The Dizzie bags are also available at NET-A-PORTER.COM while Dizzie and Victoire styles are available at the Paris concept store Colette.
