Olympia Le-Tan is a self-taught fashion designer. She was born in London and raised in Paris. She started her career at the Chanel design studio with Karl Lagerfeld then went on to Balmain where she worked closely with Gilles Dufour who then created his own brand with Olympia by his side.

In 2009, she launched her eponymous accessories label, combining her two obsessions, embroidery (a talent she inherited from her grandmother), and literature (a passion she shares with her father, French illustrator Pierre Le-Tan) to create one of a kind handbags and minaudières.


If you've read this iconic piece of work by Tennessee Williams, you can now wear it on you. 

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, A Streetcar Named Desire (2009) is the tale of a catastrophic confrontation between fantasy and reality, embodied in the characters of Blanche DuBois and Stanley Kowalski. 

Williams's steamy and shocking landmark drama, recreated as the immortal film starring Marlon Brando, is one of the most influential plays of the twentieth century.
