There had been Olympia LeTan's book-shaped minaudière, the "lire c'est sexy" t-shirts and the Instagram influencers taking pictures of Parisian booksellers, like Jeanne Damas . Now, it is the models who take out a book in their hand as an it bag.
Bella and Gigi Hadid appeared in the street with books that could serve as paparrazades. Gigi was seen with the existentialist classic Camus Stranger . And Bella instagrammed Stephen King's novel The Outsider , on a first-class flight, next to a cherry-print Louis Vuitton x Takashi Murakami bag, a Dior monogrammed clutch, and a water bottle. While Kaia Gerber posted on the same social network in a library, the arms loaded with printed volumes. The precursor? Britney Spears , who in 2018 showed herself with a copy of Candide in her arms. A cable crackage similar to that of the shaved head?
