Charlotte Olympia is known its conversational and literal accessory collections, and while we’ve given mixed reviews about many of these designs (let’s remember the Soda Bottle Heel Sandal), practicality is often an issue even if we love Charlotte Dellal’s creations. With Dellal’s new 9-to-5 Collection, coming soon, women who need more practical (but still stylish) shoes will get a bit of a break. Read More…

What do you get when you mix PVC, glitter, suede, and a soda bottle? If you weren’t able to guess, the answer is these Charlotte Olympia Soda Bottle-Heel Platform Sandals.

The creative wave that’s sprung from Dellal is bound to make a splash into the hearts of even some people who don’t consider themselves fans of Charlotte Olympia. Read More…

Feelings about Charlotte Olympia vary wildly in the TalkShoes office.
