Object Lust: APC and Olympia Le-Tan Collaborate
The Daily Berrie recently covered Parisian jeune femme Olympia Le-Tan's quirky embroidered minaudiere clutches that boasted the hand-stitched covers of Moby Dick and other literature classics. Unfortunately they came at a steep price, going for about $1700 a pop. We love our Melville, but we'll settle for the paperback. But on January 21st, we learned from the NY Times, that Le-Tan is now teaming up with French cult label A.P.C. to create a collection of denim jackets also featuring snippets from the acclaimed classics like J.D. Salinger's Catcher in the Rye (The back banner reads: "People Never Notice Anything".) The jackets, $280 each will be available at A.P.C. on Mercer Street.
