SHOP TRUMPS: Charlotte Olympia
Who do you turn to when you need a dose of old Hollywood glamour and a little bit of whimsy? Why, Charlotte Olympia, of course. The Cordwainer-trained designer has become the queen of statement-making accessories. And we chose to spend our Monday morning at the stunning Draycott Avenue boutique getting caught in Charlotte’s web.
What are we still obsessing over? A rocket clutch that's out of this world, a pair of black velvet sandals with transparent gold confetti-like heels, an embellished satin clutch to die for, a red Kitty clutch that will upgrade any LBD, and a pair of velvet Kitty flats that we want to stroke all day.
This Metal Molly embellished clutch makes us wonder why anyone would want to take fashion too seriously. Inspired by Fritz Lang’s 1927 sci-fi film, Metropolis, this charming beauty from the Mechanix collection combines Swarovski crystals, leather and Perspex for a luxurious finish.
These Apollo heels are business in the front and party at the back! The translucent heels with the little specs of gold will elevate any look.
We would take this clutch to the moon and back! Pair with an elegant black suit and let the 3D metal rocket shine.
Kitty Clutch, ‘Encore’ - £695
If you want a classic Charlotte Olympia piece, invest in this little Kitty matchbox clutch. Keep it on your top shelf even when you're not carrying it to show it off.
Charlotte Olympia put herself on the fashion map with these Kitty flats and we covet her upgraded versions season after season. We’ll be wearing these deep red velvet ones all year round.
All products are available at Charlotte Olympia located at Brompton Cross, 114 Draycott Avenue, SW3 3AE.
