Made to Measure: Charlotte Olympia’s Craft-Inspired Capsule

-------

Charlotte Olympia

When it comes to quirky, thematic accessories, Charlotte Olympia has the market tapped. For Christmas, designer Charlotte Dellal whipped up a pair of jingle-bell platforms; on Valentine’s Day, it was suede-heart-appliquéd pumps; and for shoppers with a year-round sweet tooth, a gilded gummi-bear-shaped clutch. In the spirit of fashion week (which is basically a holiday in our books), Dellal was inspired by the detail and craftsmanship that go into each new collection. “I took inspiration from a vintage sewing box with needle and thread embroidery, gold loose buttons, and a measuring tape,” Dellal told Style.com. The capsule, titled “Shear Delight,” includes the classic “Kitty” flat, this time with gold buttons for eyes; a black “Pandora” box clutch with a measuring-tape-printed insert; and chunky wedges featuring a spool of thread looped around the base. Debuting exclusively here, the range is a little bit meta and long on charm—we wouldn’t expect anything less.

The Charlotte Olympia Shear Delight collection will be available exclusively at charlotteolympia.com beginning March 3.
