Exclusive:
Charlotte Olympia’s Fall 2011 Film Noir

-------


For the film presenting her Fall 2011 collection, Charlotte Dellal of Charlotte Olympia turned to one of her great obsessions for inspiration: Agatha Christie.

“I am a serious Agatha Christie fan, and I used certain novels and characters as a starting point,” she says of To Die For, her noirish, three-minute short, written and directed by London-based filmmaker Jam. “The film was a way to describe the collection; obviously, shoes don’t get their own runway show, so I was looking for a way to get the feel of the collection across. Of course, it is all quite tongue-in-cheek, a bit surreal, and hopefully quite sexy.” English model Portia Freeman plays the lead. “She completely embodies the Charlotte Olympia woman,” Dellal raves. “She is not just a pretty face; she has a lot of character.” And, it goes without saying, great shoes. Poirot never had footwear like this.

The film debuts at Dellal’s launch party-cum-presentation tonight, but we’ve got the first glimpse exclusively here on Style.com.
