Bag designer Olympia Le-Tan has looked to her love of surrealist art as inspiration for a new collection of clutches.

To create the new line, entitled the Olympia Le-Tan X Magritte Collection, Le-Tan was drawn to the work of the French artist, Rene Magritte, and transformed his paintings into embroidery.

“When I started doing my research, Magritte’s beautiful paintings kept popping up, so it really seemed like the perfect choice. When his estate agreed to let us use his work, it was like a dream come true.”

Le Tan’s bags are known for their intricate needlework that depict various images, often as humorous as they are delicate.

Olympia Le-Tan X Magritte Collection is available at Moda Operandi.
