There is always something magical and quirky about Charlotte Olympia’s collections, whether it is the iconic kitty flats, her signature spider web or the adorable sculpted poodle heels, you are always guaranteed statement shoes.
Last week I was treated to a preview of Charlotte Olympia’s autumn/winter 2013 collection, Once Upon A Time, inspired by “classic children’s fables and magical fairy tales” including some of my favourites – Sleeping Beauty, Little Red Riding Hood and Rapunzel.
I think I literally oohed and ahhed all the way round, gushing over the ‘Damsel in Distress’ booties with a tower as a heel, the sparkly ‘She Wolf’ heels, the ‘Enchanted’ gold tree stump heels, the ‘Rapunzel Rapunzel’ platforms with gold braided t-bar straps for her golden hair, I adore her hot red lips and fluttering lashes, and the cutest version of little red riding hood I have ever seen.
It is hard to name just one as my favourite, so I have gone for three – the ‘Sleeping Beauty’ court shoes, she really is the fairest of them all, the ‘Fashionably Late’ flats that come in an array of colours, and each has adjustable clocks, and I couldn’t leave out the updated ‘Kitty’ flats, which for autumn will be the ‘Sleeping Kitty’, love, love, love!!!
As well as fabulous shoes, Charlotte Olympia also does some of the best clutches around, my favourites being the perspex ‘Pandora’ clutch that has been give a fairy tale makeover – featuring a frog, crown and my favourite the Wind Up’ key.
You might have to wait until September until they hit the shops, but here are a few more piccies showing the beautiful collection, for more, I took a lot of pictures, head on over to my Facebook page.
