In Conversation with Charlotte Dellal
It’s not hard to spot a Charlotte Olympia shoe. There’s often leopard print, or a kitten or spiderweb motif involved and, no matter what the heel height, they will always be the height of elegance. The label’s British-Brazilian designer, Charlotte Dellal, has made a name for herself by creating alluring accessories to channel our inner screen goddess.
Founded in 2008 and now boasting 11 stores around the world, Charlotte Olympia Dellal’s bold, cheeky imagination doesn’t just run wild with shoes and handbags. Her collaborations with Agent Provocateur, Bodyism, MAC and, most recently, her beautifully illustrated stationery for Paperless Post are the perfect extension of the life she leads. With a husky voice straight out of a film noir, she sat down to spill her secrets about glamour, parties, the perfect red lip and why she’ll never be seen in a pair of jeans.
