Charlotte Olympia is a British shoe and accessories brand founded in 2008 by Charlotte Olympia Dellal.
Charlotte Olympia designs are influenced by her love of the old and classical cinema glamour from Hollywood, from the pin-ups and movie stars from the 1940s and 50s. Her design philosophy is to create luxurious, feminine shoes and accessories with a hint of humor.
The brand became known for the ‘’island’’ platform Dolly pump, the Kitty flat and Perspex Pandora clutch box. These fashion hits became literally obsession among the fashionistas all over the Globe.
As soon as she launched the brand, she quickly developed a loyal following with her feminine, colourful and nostalgic aesthetic.
“The essence of my brand comes from my love of old Hollywood glamour. The Forties and Fifties are bygone eras that I am nostalgic for, and they play a huge part on the sensibility of the brand. I like to give my collections a soul and a story, and a little sense of humour. I always have a clear starting point and I run with it.” – Said Charlotte during an interview for the British Vogue in 2013.
