Charlotte Dellal’s Champagne Shoe Party

-------


Charlotte Dellal knows people. Alexander Wang cozied up to her sister Alice and took her as his date to last year’s CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards; Charlotte Casiraghi and her brother Alex Dellal are likethis; her mother, Andrea, is a former model. Not to put too fine a gloss on it, but the girl’s got friends in high places. Fitting, then, that her shoes—produced under the name Charlotte Olympia—are of the seriously tottering variety. She did make a pair of flats once. “They were experimental,” she explained at her tea-and-Champagne party at London’s St. Martins Lane hotel Tuesday. “And I swear to you, these are more comfortable.” “These,” per Dellal, were the towering, striped-wedge over-the-knee platform boots she was wearing, a look from the Fall ’09 collection being presented. “I call this my super-wedge. They’re the highest I’ve ever done.” Is there a particular girl Dellal has in mind when she designs her sky-scraping platforms? “I don’t have a muse,” she notes. “And I don’t even particularly design with myself in mind, either. I guess I just think about the Charlotte Olympia girl, who gets dressed from the feet up. Shoes first, figure out the rest later.”
