While we're on the subject of Kate Spade...the other week an eagle-eyed friend sent me a link to Kate Spade's I Married Adventure Book Clutch. I had never even heard of this series of book clutches that KS is doing this spring. The company designed their own cover art for some of their favorite books and then turned them into clutches, releasing one a month as sort of a "book of the month" spin-off, according to Vanity Fair.
Here's the I Married Adventure book (left) and the Kate Spade-ized clutch, right.
Also in the lineup....Great Expectations. As much as I love anything that encourages literature, I'm still trying to wrap my head around the mechanics of carrying these around as clutches. At $325 they're not cheap, and these are not an everyday sort of accessory. It's sort of hard to plan an outfit around an purse that has graphics and writing on it, don't you think? I'd love to see these turned into posters or small framable prints, though- that would be a fun series! Or even have them actually publish the books with these decorative covers as a box collection.
Romeo & Juliet
Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest
And everyone's favorite Jane Austin...Emma
I wonder what's next on Kate Spade's next book of the month clutch! And in the meantime, apparently I really need to read The Importance of Being Earnest- that is the only one from this list I've never gotten to!
Would you carry around a book of the month clutch?
