"It seems strange to refer to Olympia Le-Tan’s new monograph, “The Story of O.L.T.” (Rizzoli, Nov. 1), as her first book. After all, the Parisian built her namesake seven-year-old brand on hand-embroidered clutches that mimic the covers of literary classics . . ."
—Wall Street Journal
"Fashion News: Olympia Le-Tan, known for her signature trompe l'oeil clutches inspired by classic literature, debuts an actual book this month, a visual memoir of sorts."
"The Story of O.L.T. is a scrapbook-style tour of Le-Tan's life and work, including behind-the-scenes images of her collaborations with filmmakers Wes Anderson and Spike Jonze."
"Olympia Le-Tan can be appreciated on many levels. The book can be so many different things to each reader depending on the reader’s fashion education or trend exposure. This book is part journal, part look book, part visual diary, part love letter, part enigma, and a lot of 'look at me.'"
—New York Journal of Books
"The Cut: Classical literature has influenced Le-Tan throughout her life. She grew up in a house filled with books…The Story of O.L.T., out November 1 from Rizzoli, traces Le-Tan's career from Chanel to working with Gilles Dufour at Balmain to her own ready-to-wear collections..."
—New York Magazine
"French designer Olympia Le-Tan is best known for her ridiculously charming clutches, which feature embroideries of book covers. She uses everything from classic literature to cheesy romance novels, and they’re all given a delicate, vintage-style twist."
