Little Black Book, 2021
Little Black Book, co-published by Bynd Artisan — and supported by Breguet, Perrier-Jouet, and Marina Bay Sands — is a treasure trove filled with quotable quotes and words to live (and dress) by, with guest appearances by famous muses such as Coco Chanel, Diana Vreeland and Audrey Hepburn. It’s a must-have guide for the contemporary woman to find her own voice and way of being in the world. “It is my passion to share these thoughts with you, and I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy sharing them. More so, I hope you add your own to them (that’s why there are blank pages too),” Olga writes in her opening note. From Olga Iserlis, prominent businesswoman and high society “Event Organiser Extraordinaire”, comes her new book, which offers a generous helping of canapé-sized inspirations, ideas, anecdotes drawn from her own experiences. Over 208 pages and three sections (“Fashion & Style”, “Etiquette & Manners”, and “History & Tradition”), readers are invited inside the elegant world of Olga Iserlis — a gallery of personal musings gleaned from her wealth of observations, notes and conversations she has had with herself on ideas she considers interesting and important. Alongside them are fun, historical facts annexed by a thoughtful bibliography of sources, humorous anecdotes and etymological analyses.
