London-based Charlotte Olympia is your go-to label for outfit-elevating statement shoes and accessories.
Entitled ‘Secret Garden’, the Cruise 2017 collection from Charlotte Olympia comprises sandals and pumps, clutches and handbag heroes decorated with wild flowers, peas, bees and even ladybirds. Spring/Summer 2017, affectionately known as ‘Let’s Go Bananas’ draws its inspiration from style icon, Carmen Miranda. Palm tree-inspired mules, golden sandals, floral ornamentation… all manner of fun and fancy denote the universe of the 1930s Brazilian starlet. And we’re more than ready to channel her…
Charlotte Olympia has always been inspired by corsetry and the old-world glamour of Hollywood. Her admiration of the era’s pinups and glittering glitz is reflected by the names of her designs alone, be it the ‘Monroe’ pumps or the ‘Bogart’ tote. Other signature styles that epitomise Olympia’s unique fashion sensibility, like the ‘Kitty’ flats and ‘Dolly’ platforms, have quickly become modern icons, well worth investing in.
