It's a tricky game of cat and mouse when it comes to deciding between two of the most covetable pieces of footwear to buy this season so we thought we'd break it down. We first became obsessed with Charlotte Olympia's adorable Kitty flats when it was confirmed that they would be a carry-through style to be produced each and every season - yay! They are available in classic black and red velvet and Spring Summer 2012 sees a summery espadrille style and there's set to be a key new colour for each season going forward so it's hardly surprising that the feline flats have been causing websites to crash and stores to instantly sell out.
But we then noticed a pair of twinkly Glitter mouse pumps by Marc by Marc Jacobs that had just landed in store at Matches, and from there our dilemma began. Even superstar songstress Beyonce couldn't decide between the two so she chose a bit of both when when wearing an ensemble to match her daugther's, Blue Ivy. Taking a stroll in the Big Apple, Mummy B followed in the fashionable footsteps of Alexa Chung thanks to a pair of leopard-print kitty flats while Daughter B wore a pair of diddy mouse slippers by Little Marc Jacobs. Too cute!
Selfridges' exclusive Marc by Marc Jacobs capsule collection
And now, the animal flats have been SO poplular that Selfridges in London have dedicated an entire pop-up store to the adorable pumps. Head to the mega store's Shoe Galleries until May 5th and you'll find an exclusive Marc by Marc Jacobs capsule collection in a dedicated pop-up store. There'll be fifteen different versions, inspired by the iconic “Mouse” ballerina, that come in unique shapes and colours - including punk, perforated, metallic, espadrille and jelly flats. Race you there.
So which is it going to be? Well, both of course!
