Charlotte Olympia An Accessory To Murder Collection

“On a dark night, two girls found themselves in the wrong place at the right time and I was about to get caught in a Spider’s web. A web of beautiful women, high heels, leopard print and murder”.

To the backdrop of a classic film noir tale, Charlotte Olympia launches the Autumn Winter 2017 collection. There’s a victim, a detective, a heroine and one serious shoe plot to unravel. And so, the case begins.

The Collection is shown in full Film Noir style in a Fashion film Directed by Sophie Edelstein.


Inspired by 40s film greats like Lauren BacallBarbara Stanwyck and Rita Hayworth, designer Charlotte Olympia’s fall line of shoes, bags and accessories is an ode to Film Noir and it’s stylish mystery and mayhem.

This Collection is everything my retro-loving fashion heart could ask for.  It’s the monotone story of femme fatale style with pops of powerful pinks and heartbreaker reds.

‘In fabulous shoes, a girl can get away with anything’ 

Nods to iconic Film Noir symbols are present throughout the collection including rotary dial telephone bags, killer leopard prints, glamorous gloves, heart motif stilettos, lace up heeled tweed and suede Oxfords, framed handbags, pearl embellished Cinderella heels and of course newsprint.

Here’s a peek at the Collection that is making headlines this season and remember fellas “Never come between a girl and her shoes”.

Knock on Wood: Clogs are Hot for Summer 2017

Chanel Wood Slides

Clogs are totally hot for summer 2017, once known as a folksy shoe worn by gardeners and smurfs, the clog has come a long way from its humble orthopedic foot care beginnings.

This iconic style was originally made famous in the late 1960s by Dr. Scholls, the sandal’s raised toe crest and contoured sole encourage natural gripping and flexing when walking. Perfectly simple, playfully chic, and crafted in wood to last through the years, the Original Exercise Sandals were an unexpected fashion hit and has remained a feminine favorite for decades.

According to well known fashion lore: Clogs come back in style every seven years.  The last time they made a huge showing was in the 2011 shows (which happened in 2010 so get out your calculators folks… was 7 years ago) they remained front and center the whole year once fashion darling Alexa Chung adopted them as her go to style.  Then last year we got a sneak peek of the trend rearing its head again in fur lined versions at Gucci and Fendi.

Thanks to the revival of 1970s style and all things boho, clogs have made their way into the summer 2017 collections of just about EVERYONE. From Saint Laurent’s studded prints to Chloe’s organic modernist take, clogs have been given a cool fashion update for spring that is anything but folksy.

Effortlessly chic, easy to wear and oh so comfy they will give your feet a much needed summer vacation.

Whether you choose to rock them in the form of slides, sky high platforms, strappy sandals or slip-on mules there is no disputing that wood soles are hot hot hot this season and don’t forget to keep ahold of them when the season ends because the trend will be back again in 7 years, hello Spring/Summer 2024.
