THE MARKET: Read All About It!
Although we dreaded compulsory reading in our younger days (with all due respect, Mr. Orwell), we've since warmed up to a good classic... and are even wearing 'em now, too.
With all due respect, Mr. Orwell we actually dreaded compulsory reading in our younger days, but we've since warmed up to a good classic (really, you would be proud). Plus, we’ve grown to love a good bookshelf more than most.
Whether it's the real deal or an homage paid to our beloved reads, Isaac Mizrahi (remember that cameo on Sex and the City?) said it best: “Books are back.” And we’re quick to point the finger at Olympia Le-Tan. Kate Spade did a pretty bang up job on their version of a book clutch, too; props Deborah Lloyd. But it was O.L.T.’s intricate book covers that won our hearts, which we first spotted at The Webster Miami, then again in Paris at Claire Thomson-Jonville’s pad and again at Annabelle Dexter-Jones' abode. A.D.J. has a love for literary fashion like not other; her love for Catcher in the Rye is displayed through a delicate Olympia Le-Tan clutch, a graphic hoodie and a limited-edition Richard Prince rarity (we're not sure what's more fun: re-reading the classic, or hunting for rare copies hidden around N.Y.C. by Prince himself).
Literature has seeped into the homes and wardrobes of some of the most well dressed peeps in the fashion biz, and we couldn’t be more obsessed with their literary finds. Some favorites from the “library” at The Coveteur High? We spied some classic Kurt Vonnegut at Hannah Bronfman’s pad, heard about Jodie Snyder’s The Great Gatsby and had to tear ourselves away from Tommy Hilfiger’s intensive Richard Prince bookshelf (not to mention his Eloise room—dedicated entirely to the beloved literary character!). Looks like you’ve got some reading to catch up on, kids.
