SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Charlotte Olympia

Charlotte Olympia is inarguably one of the most innovative shoe designers of today.  Diana Vreeland is recognized as “The Empress of Fashion”, and was a fashion icon of her day.  These sandals by Charlotte Olympia are inspired by the late and great Diana Vreeland and her unique and fashion-forward style.  The architectural details and luxurious textures make these sandals truly remarkable.

What do you think of these sandals?  How would you style them?




These beauties, my friend, are Charlotte Olympia‘s matryoshka suede heels.  And, yes, the darling little matryoshka doll is indeed winking.  For those of you unfamiliar with these Russian dolls, they are wooden dolls with each a smaller copy of the subsequent doll, of which are placed inside one other, and represent the design in many worldly objects which tend to mimic the concept of an “object-within-a-similar-object”.  I love the fun, floral print on the toes, and the black laser-cut suede is gives a unique and intricate aesthetic.  They run a high price tag at $1565, but you can find ’em here.
