The Olde Book Purse

itkl_olde_book_purse

First there was the Olde Book Backpack, and then there was the Olde Book Messenger Bag. Now that olde book is more compact than ever as a purse.

It looks like an old leather-bound volume you’d find in your grandmother’s library, but it functions like a handbag. It holds your wallet, your phone, possibly your eReader or your book, depending on their respective sizes. It has an adjustable shoulder strap that comes off entirely in case you want to use it as an oversized clutch or pop it on a bookshelf to sneakily hold something. Like all books, with this one you can use your imagination.

Check out additional pics below. Apparently, is’s big enough for Kiki to use on her deliveries.

The North Face has unveiled a new Access Pack backpack that features a cool rigid panel that opens up with a press of a button and stays open until you close it. It also features ejector tabs and handles that will give you quick access to items like phones, pens and laptops.

Naturally, the bag won’t come cheap at $235. That’s a steep price for a backpack, but it might be worth it for a useful bit of gear that you’ll probably use every day.

Check out the demo video below to see how the Access Pack works.

Star Wars anime, comic book, and tattoo patterns abound in everything from wallets to handbags to backpacks.

The Covet is strong with me. Check out more pics from the lineup below.

Ideal for cyclists (or spies on stealth missions) the Adidas Y-3 Sport Backpack has a trim, fitted design, so you can actually wear the bag like a vest.

Of course, its carrying capacity is limited—Adidas notes that it’s designed to hold “light luggage”. That means stuff like your phone, wallet, a clean shirt, etc.

The Y-3 also features waterproof zippers, ventilated padding, reflective fabrics and a hanging system that allows for the addition of a Camelbak. Unfortunately, you’ll pay a ridiculous $410 for the stylish convenience.

Sorry, but there are even more Dooney & Bourke bags for all of us to drool over. Not only have they revealed new Mickey, Minnie, and Star Wars bags, but I also spotted a whole Haunted Mansion collection that’s to DIE for.

Move over, Optimus Prime — this transforming bag can go from heavy-duty work day to evening flair in a snap. Created by design house Luxilitatian, the “Bag Revolution” can easily convert into nine different styles.

Made from a combination of leather and waterproof nylon, the bag transforms six ways and comes with a great pouch insert (for that tricky tablet or your latest paperback obsession) that can be carried three different ways. There’s also an easy-to-access insert for all the important little things (keys, cards, and cash) and a handle that allows you to wear the bag in several different ways.

Check out the bag in action below.

Designer Olympia Le-Tan is known for her unique style, which includes intricate and beautiful embroidered clutches like the ones featured in her recent Star Wars comic-inspired collection.

Unfortunately, the clutches were a very limited edition priced over $2000 during a short pre-order period, so we’re super jealous of anyone who will be receiving theirs on May 4th.

Still, the clutches are definitely worth checking out—even if it’s just to appreciate them for the masterpieces that they are.
