That Charlotte Olympia (aka Charlotte Dellal) designs some of the loveliest and most imaginative shoes that we've seen in a while is a very well-established, by now, fact. It can be argued that the London-based designer, and Dellal scion, is solely (no pun intended!) responsible for making the platform sandal the shoe of the last few seasons. She also happens to have a penchant for some serious animal print so we were delighted to see that her A/W'11 collection, presented during London Fashion Week, at the seriously chic Mark's Club, takes that one step further. We think the words cute, cat and flats should give you a pretty good idea of what we're talking about! We want.
While perusing the collection and mentally compiling a shopping list in the process (you would too!), we got the chance to sit down with a cup of tea and watch the short film that Charlotte created alongside lovely-sounding London filmmaker Jam and featuring model Portia Freeman. And now, not only can you watch the film but shop the To Die For collection online too! To save you some time we even screen-grabbed all the shoes that caught our eye, cat flats included, for the gallery below just because, you know, you'll want to stare at them for a while!
