Just as Charlotte Dellal is crazy about using celestial bodies for her Fall 2012 collection, I’m as much as over the moon about her moon-inspired designs particularly these ‘Luna’ and ‘Eclipse’ pumps:
Charlotte Olympia ‘Luna’ moon face pump in blue/silver, $895.00
Charlotte Olympia ‘Eclipse’ moon face pump in navy suede, £655 or approx. $1,059.00
So cartoon-like yet also so sexy at the same time. The whimsical design gets touch of a melancholic vibe from the crystal teardrop falling from the moon’s embroidered eye, but the total look is still dreamy, dramatic and desirable.
This is why Charlotte Olympia has become THE ultimate designer shoe label for me now. They’re not afraid to use lips, suede hearts, musical notes and even matryoshka dolls in their shoe designs, things that you’d think of putting on shoes if you’re a kid or a young student dreaming of becoming a shoe designer. There is a tendency for those embellishments to look juvenile but just take a look at these shoes and you can see that they’ve pulled them off effortlessly.
Charlotte Olympia is always that shoe brand that convinces me that the hundreds and thousands of dollars for their shoes is worth it!
