Charlotte Olympia Kitty Flats

London shoe designer Charlotte Olympia Dellal launched her footwear label Charlotte Olympia, in 2007 and has since gone on to achieve high acclaim for her striking, expertly crafted creations. Before introducing her luxury accessories line, the London-based designer spent time at Ungaro and Giambattista Valli. Expect statement styles in colour-popping hues, retro silhouettes, and luxe finishes. Whether they are sky-high platforms with cut-out details or flats with texture-rich embellishments her shoes are guaranteed to help you find your fashion feet.

These Charlotte Olympia Kitty Flats have been written up all over the internet and featured on several blogs. I wanted to share this unique pair of skimmers with my readers as there is something that I find particularly fascinating about these shoes. The iconic kitty cat face motif beautifully highlights the London fashion house’s inimitable talent for whimsical, playful accents which can give new life to simple closet staples like tailored straight leg pants and classic pencil skirts. I have never been one for cutesy, girly looks or accessories, but the way the cat embroidery was done keeps these shoes from looking like a pair of old lady bed slippers. I think the cut-out ear detail is really key here as well as the overall slim appearance of the flats. In other words, these kitty velvet skimmers are purr-fection!

*I love how each of Charlotte’s shoes are beautifully finished with her signature scalloped leather lining. Additionally, all of her pieces are handcrafted in Italy.
