Ernest Hemingway, J.D. Salinger, Bram Stoker, Roald Dahl…Now in Clutch Form!

12 Aug

Yesterday, Chicago street style photographer, Tres Awesome, posted photos from Lollapalooza 2011. What really caught our eye was the Olympia Le-Tan clutch inspired by Bram Stroker’s Dracula..this led us to the company’s online shop and honestly, the bags and clutches inspired by book covers are SO GORGEOUS. Watch a behind-the-scenes video and check out all the designs on their website here: http://www.olympialetan.com/online_shop.cfm. (they also have a pretty awesome blog for anyone in love with book cover design)

…was the title of Leon Levinstein’s exhibition of street fashion photography from the 1960’s-1980’s. It’s a black and white collection, but still captures a great look into the daily fashions – not just the glamorous rich models you see on the screen… but those everyday people who go out of their way to look out-of-the-ordinary.
