Charlotte Olympia
"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!

her shoes have been at NAP for a couple of seasons now (a few pairs were at theoutnet as well). the designs are very creative, yet wearable.

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:

I've seen them on browns. To be honest, they've never really appealed to me.

Not really that keen on any of her shoes that I've seen so far. I think artistically the first pair in #1 are pretty, but as a pair of shoes they're really not my thing.

Cheryl Cole's been wearing her shoes lately though, she wore both of these pairs:


Quite like the first pair, really really really dislike the second pair.

leyla: modeling pix of the leopard maxine please... I adore that shoe!

I was dying to buy these but Brown's sold out in my size and seemed to be the only one to stock it.


"Malice" shoe

Charlotte also did the shoes for Krystof Strozyna's fw09 collection:

Gotta say the Malice and Maxine in leopard both look fantastic.
