Charlotte Olympia - Charlotte Dellal's Range

Last week'Sunday Times supplement featured several up and coming shoes designers. Most of the time, I think "YAWN" when reading such profiles. Very few designers actually create something new and fresh. But one individual stood out with sassy, edgy shoes that just beg to be worn. Step forward Charlotte Dellal, creator of the "Charlotte Olympia" line. The sophomore collection from Charlotte Olympia will be stocked at Browns, Net-A-Porter and Harvey Nichols.

Her shoes are meant to be worn proudly and despite all their glamour, possess a stylish and chic edge, featuring interesting materials. This is one lady who appears to know how shoes should be. Vamp, kitsch and boudoir chic appear to be inspirations for this collection. I can't wait for my next trip to London and to Harvey Nicks and a chance to see these shoes in the flesh. If they are half as good in real life as they appear in the photos, I think I'll be making a purchase. There's always room for another pair of sky-high, funk-me shoes in my wardrobe!

shoes, shoes, shoes! luckily there was no blue shoes or I'd have just popped! I like shoes, and hat, and scarves, and coats, and tee-shirts, and pants, and blue, and blondie, and burgers, and everything!
