DESIGNER SPOTLIGHT: CHARLOTTE OLYMPIA
If ever whimsy was an art form, which it is, Charlotte Olympia would have it down to a “T”. Her shoes and accessories are just so delightfully fanciful. I have kept my eye on this London based designer since shortly after her brand launched in 2008. I always look forward to seeing what she comes up with next!
First let’s talk about her shoes. Imagine what the offspring of a Picasso painting and a pair of Jimmy Choo’s would look like. That is how I would describe most of her shoes designs. There are others with a more subtle makeup, but the vivid ones are what she is known for. Just enjoy the eye candy!
These belong at the most elegant of garden parties!
Reminiscent of Dipping Dots, these call for a red silk dress!
If I could get married all over again, these would be my wedding shoes!
These are vixenous! Yes, I made up that word. I just love that little flash of red you get on the bottom of the sole.
Never has there ever been a shoe that was more meant to wear on Valentine’s day………until these. They are my favourite so far from her newest collection.
With a blue Turquoise statement necklace….that’s all I have to say.
Now for the bags! She does some amazing clutch designs. They are all pretty much of a solid construction, mostly acrylic.
With the garden party shoes, I know!
This is her popular Pandora style. It gets new prints so often. This design represents the epitome of colour blocking!
I would wear all black and just let that pompom on top be my “flash of bold colour”.
Who doesn’t want a clutch with a kitty cat face on it?
What do you think of the latest from Charlotte Olympia?
