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!

     Reminiscent of Dipping Dots, these call for a red silk dress!

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.

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?
