We all know Charlotte Olympia’s tongue-in-cheek aesthetic; just think back to the eery Hands On Sandal. For Spring 2015, it looks as if the brand is turning its kitschy gaze on Western style.
In the past, designers inspired by the American West generally relegate the region’s rich colors and textures to fall collections. It’s interesting to see Dellal capture this theme in the spring by incorporating belt buckles, calf hair and suede into airy sandals and pumps. This change-up I believe correlates to a small shift for the brand; while Dellal still has some quirky moments in this Spring 2015 collection, like a cowboy on the back of a chunky-heeled sandal, overall, her collection is more rounded. This is likely due to Dellal’s desire to grow her brand by attracting a larger customer base; her other efforts to do the same have included a very laid-back Party Shoe Collection.
Of course, some things never change–you’ll still see some of Dellal’s signatures, like chunky platforms and the Kitty flat. Check out the designs from Net-a-Porter’s Spring 2015 lookbook below, and be sure to look for the collection when it arrives at Net-a-Porter soon.
