Charlotte Olympia Spring Summer 2017

Categories:Fashion

The success of London’s burgeoning accessories brands was one of the features of today’s schedule. Three of them put out major runway productions—Anya Hindmarch in the morning, Mulberry in the afternoon, and Charlotte Olympia at night. Designer Charlotte Dellal’s show was a riot of no-expense-spared fun. She took over an Art Deco ballroom off London’s Piccadilly for an evening performance of ’40s-theme glamour, involving showgirls, dancers, the lot.
“I based it on Technicolor movies from the ’40s, like Carmen Miranda’s, which I always love,” she said. This is a girl who knows how to entertain. Dellal seated her audience beside a high catwalk, the better to get an eyeful of the footwear. First, she sent out a passage of elegant cream clothes, accessorized with gilded platforms and colorful flat sandals. So far, so regular a fashion show; but then came the carnival of kitsch—a riot of girls dressed in a cocktail of exotic fruit costumes, followed by a troupe of high-kicking dancers dressed in gold swimsuits. They performed a hilarious synchronized routine with giant inflatable bananas—the better to display Dellal’s prowess with brightly colored stiletto pumps. After a long day, it brought the house down.

Charlotte Olympia

Charlotte Olympia presented Spring Summer 2017 Let’s Go Bananas womenswear collection, inspired by “the lady in the tutti frutti hat” Carmen Miranda. The collection celebrates Brazilian superstar and bombshell, who was popular from the 1930s to the 1950s, with mouthwatering colour palette and a feast of tropical fruits and flowers.

“There is no shortage of samba-inspired statement heels in this show stopping collection. Carnaval knee high lace-ups and Botanica platforms are decorated with golden leather orchids.  Cut-out Monstera leaf uppers adorn Verdant Wedges and Amazonia slides and feature throughout the selection of leather goods including the classic Bogart handbag. 
Accessories go bananas with cheeky Chiquita banana court shoes and fruit appliqué designs including Fruit Salad sandals, Juicy Dolly’s and revisited favourites,Bananas is My Business platform pumps and Tutti Frutti flats, both updated with a ‘Hollywood Smile’ lip motif. The Tropical Handbag and Fruit Basket star alongside Club Tropicana peeptoes and Chica Chica Boom platforms, all embellished with floral fruit clusters.“

Charlotte Olympia Dellal made platforms her platform from day one in business as a shoe designer, which was years ago and they were a huge part from her spring 2017 collection.
There were clothes, but the real emphasis was, naturally, the accessories. The footwear was signature Charlotte Olympia — big, bold and sexy. Some things rise above fashion to become a matter of personal style, taste, and being certain of who you are—and Charlotte Olympia is a shining example of that.

With her and her sister's star power, they have created a fashion dynasty. 

And Poppy Delevingne was providing her superstar touch to the incredible Charlotte Olympia Spring/Summer 2017 showcase at London Fashion Week on Sunday. 

The 29-year-old sister of Cara showed off her unique flare for fashion in a pair of low-key jeans paired with a wildly glamorous black sequinned cape.

Poppy perfectly combined casual styling with the height of glamour as she showed off her phenomenal figure in the second-skin light wash jeans. 

The distressed denims showed off her figure to maximum effect while she paired the look with a stomach-baring black vest top which further added to the low-key look.

Making the ensemble fashion week worthy was her statement sequinned cape which boasted stunning embroidery while tying in an elaborate bow at her chest. 

She boosted her already statuesque with the addition of a pair of pointed staggering heels with a pointed toe and delicate ankle straps.

CRAFT TRENDS AT LONDON FASHION WEEK

Watermelon shaped wicker baskets, surfside Ocean Drive and Old Bollywood at London Fashion Week

London was buzzing with excitement during London Fashion Week. With so many designers to see - I wanted to get in on the action! 

For the last few years I have been happy to see some strong craft influences on the catwalk from the likes of Shrimps, Julien Macdonald, Burberry, and Christopher Kane.  These influences have continued and next season’s trends include brightly coloured accessories, knitwear, patchwork and embellishments, and queen of all the new trends - embroidery. 

Here’s a roundup of some of the designers and shows that stood out the most,

Charlotte Olympia’s show at London Fashion Week was spectacular! For her Spring/Summer 2017 collection, she celebrated everything glamourous about enjoying your twilight years in style by the pool. The collection had many tongue-in-cheek moments and fruity twists including watermelon wicker baskets, parrot handbags, jewel encrusted heels, and even banana-shaped pumps.

Charlotte Olympia Feline Purse shoulder bag

Charlotte-Olympia-Feline-Purse-leather-shoulder-bag

Often Charlotte Olympia is busy designing the next Pandora Clutch, but occasionally she ‘WOW’ us with something limited like the Treasure Chest Clutch Bag and from time to time she introduced a new accessory in cats, just like this new Feline Purse Shoulder Bag.

Okay Karl Lagerfeld, you’re not the only one that loves cats, Charlotte Olympia got a feel for it too, and that’s why she introduced the Kitty & Co Collection – some time ago. For the new Fall Winter 2014 Collection, she released a playful cat-faced leather bag in full red. It’s a playful finish to any outfit and kicks you out of the comfort zone (if you only wear black and everything-quilted).

Basically, this bag is too fun to be stowed away in your tote, so it comes with an optional shoulder strap (oh, you can use it as a clutch, if you wish to). Carry it on your shoulder and show off as a dainty mini bag.

A structured handbag, neat and compact in size and seriously practical with three cardholders and array of internal slot pockets. Crafted from calf leather, the bag closes with a magnetic fastening. Measuring 10 x 15,5 x 3 (H x W x D) in cm, priced at $811 USD.

Charlotte Olympia Also Launches An Activewear Line

Categories:Fashion

Known for her quirky shoe designs, Charlotte Dellal (the woman behind Charlotte Olympia creations) is taking over the activewear world by utilizing her signature aesthetics for a whimsical 10-piece capsule collection set to launch in May, 2016. To launch her activewear line, Charlotte Olympia has teamed up with activewear and lifestyle brand Bodyism, which let her combine her one-of-a-kind looks, such as the leopard prints and the kittens faces, with the label’s signature spiderweb logo and athleisure-approved materials.

Charlotte Olympia x Bodyism Activewear 2016 Collection

Bodysim, whose motto is to spread the ‘clean and lean’ philosophy to the world, was founded by James Duigan and Nathalie Schyllert around 10 years ago, and is one of the first activewear brands whose aim was turning workout ensembles into bold fashion statements. Behind Bodyism works a team of professional experts who make sure our bodies are in good hands indeed, both physically and spiritually. Personal Trainer Duigan has, in fact, smitten many celebrities, including Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Elle MacPherson, with his cozy activewear designs and holistic approach to health, providing us with a nutrition-packed diet and some simple, 15-minute core exercises one can practice at home too.

Nathalie Schyllert, Bodywear for Bodyism’s director and co-founder of Bodyism (which could be regarded more as a movement), took the time to explain us why Bodyism’s headquarters chose to team up with Dellal, revealing the designer’s unconventional aesthetics are perfectly in line with Bodyism’s philosophy, and just proving once more that activewear can indeed be fashionable and wearable from daytime to nighttime. As for Dellal herself, the talented designer appears to be excited about the partnership and the opportunity to work with Bodyism’s team (they share a longstanding friendship with each other).

“I wanted to design a range that could be worn out and about, or for working out in the gym,” she told WWD. “I wanted to add a touch of glamour to sportswear so that you can feel dressed up, even when you’re on the go.”

Charlotte Olympia x Bodyism Activewear 2016 Collection

And just by looking at the proposals, one really gets the chance to see what it means to combine fancy designs with workout-approved pieces. From leggings to sports bras, from sweatshirts with kitty designs that are just too cute to handle to gym bags, the Charlotte Olympia x Bodyism activewear 2016 collection will just work as the best daily motivation to work out and take time to cherish one’s body goals. As for the capsule collection’s price tags, they range from £75 (circa $108) to £295 (around $425), and you’ll be able to find the pieces at Harrods, Shopbop.com, Stylerunner, Isetan and Rubaiyat. They will roll out internationally in June though, as Bodyism has chosen to stock the collection exclusively for the first month.

As for Dellal, we have to say that it has been extremely interesting to follow her latest new wrinkles: besides starting out the year by hosting her first runaway show at the London Fashion Week in February, Dellal has launched a series of collaborations that, aside from this one with Bodyism, included a risqué lingerie andboudoir-inspired shoeline with Agent Provocateur and a 26-product beauty range with MAC Cosmetics. She is a glutton for punishment indeed!
