"Hot new footwear label Charlotte Olympia is the brainchild of Cordwainers graduate and London IT girl Charlotte Olympia Dellal. The half-Brazilian, half-English designer is inspired by the glamour of the 40s and 50s and her statement making block color sandals and quirky-cool shoe boots are already a hit with style setters Kate Moss and Sienna Miller."
this is my new favourite from the AW09/10 collection!
leyla, i'm so glad you started this thread! it's about time charlotte olympia got her own feature thread in the shoe section. i love her platform designs and tend to think of her along the lines of nicholas kirkwood (both brilliant "emerging" designers, but different aesthetic); her non-platform styles are so-so i.m.o.....but her signature platform styles are divine. and yes, very wearable.
i really love this "piano key" style but haven't been able to find it anywhere.
also love this black & white striped platform pump for fall '09:
