Book Smart

blog_poshette.jpg “Carrying a good book is like having a friend with you,” says Paris- based designer Simone Bendix, whose new accessories collection, Edition Poshette, is inspired by vintage book covers. Bendix designs original prints, which she transfers onto leather; she then gives the purses evocative names like Les Feuilles de Mon Carnet Secret (The Pages of My Secret Diary). Tortoiseshell clasps add to their sense of old-world luxury, but they can be worn in a thoroughly modern way, strapped to the waist with a removable leather belt (editionposhette.com).
