Charlotte Olympia – 2011 in pictures

21 Dec

It’s been a while since the last post including shoes by Charlotte Olympia, so I looked for some pictures that I haven’t posted so far and now I share these looks with you. Of course, there have been a number of CO shoe sightings, like this one here, but today I’m dedicating the whole post to the English designer.

The trademark platform – it really makes these shoes special!

Celebrities like Katy Perry, Sarah Jessica Parker and Blake Lively are big fans:

Sylvie van der Vaart loves these heels too!

Rosamund Pike wore Charlotte Olympia at the photoshoot & the premiere too!

German TV host Mareile Höppner and the pregnant Hilary Duff are next:

As you know, Kelly Ripa is big fan of shoes, she likes CO in particular:

As the designers webpage says,

“With a design philosophy focused on femininity and inspired by the allure of glamour of old, Charlotte Olympia designs have become synonymous with classic shapes and meticulous attention to detail. Each shoe is handcrafted in Italy using only the finest materials and is finished with the brand’s signature gold spider web on the sole.”

Let’s hope we see more and more spectacular shoes in the future!

After a couple of days of absence [there’s so much work and travelling to do these days :S ] I’m back again to make a mega-post again, with a subject that will surprise many of you.

Mainly, because I bet you don’t know the people you’ll see in a few moments 🙂 Since I live in Europe, the German influence is massive in many parts of our everyday life. However, in the case of the shoes, shoe design, it’s a bit different.

It looks like the most famous ladies in the country that gave us Karl Lagerfeld, Jil Sander, Hugo Boss and Escada wouldn’t care that much about high-fashion, especially not about shoes, unlike their colleagues do in France, Britain or even in Italy. Of course, you can see some well-known pair every now and then, but I wonder what the reason behind this phenomenon is.

Now I’m going to show you a lot of German – even if some names don’t sound sooo German – ladies: TV hosts, singers, actresses, models, athletes, society chicks (aka useless people), bands.

I’m really interested in your opinions! How do you like what you see? Did you know any of them?
