Fairy Tale Footwear Fall 2013

Charlotte Olympia
'Once Upon A Time' Shoe Collection
Fall/Winter 2013

We all know how the stories go, tales told to us when we were little about bears and girls with golden locks, frogs that turn into princes and white rabbits that are always late. Gingerbread houses, red hooded capes, cats that wear boots, sleeping beauties and damsels in distress. 

Now take everything you know about these age-old fairy tales and forget about them. This is the grown up girl's Bedtime Story by Charlotte Olympia, who relates a tall, whimsical tale of enchanted forests daintily painted onto pumps, organza floral decked heels and luscious suede and velvet stilettos. Tiny enamel teddy bears and frog prince motifs are quirkily perched onto shoe fronts, and gold braiding that depicts a trapped-in-a-tower princess with long blonde hair.

The design brand spins it's web of inspiration from a Grimm Brother's classic, 'Once Upon a Time', crafting feminine and captivating shoes that allows the wearers to relive the fantasy in real life, and high style. Named after memorable fairytale characters and ancient fabled adages, these extravagant shoes are made to narrate it's own fashionable story. And just what story is that? One that ends 'Happily Ever After', of course.

This is a view into the charming Charlotte Olympia Fall/Winter 2013 footwear range.









Are you also enchanted by Charlotte Olympia's fairytale shoe range?
