London-based Charlotte Olympia is your go-to label for outfit-elevating statement shoes and accessories.
It’s all-aboard Charlotte Olympia’s rocket ship to the height of otherworldly glamour for FW16 with the “The Girl Who Fell to Earth” collection. Inspired by David Bowie, retro sci-fi films and the allure of the 1940s, the debut runway show in London was a spectacle to behold. We’re coveting this season’s ‘Outerspace’ update to the label’s iconic ‘Pandora’ box clutch for our eveningwear accessories edit. You can’t go wrong with a pair of the label’s signature ‘Mid-Century Kitty’ ballerinas, especially when they’re updated in velvet with embroidered stars – now the only dilemma is which colour to choose!
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.
