About the Brand
Blending glamor and humor, the designer Charlotte Dellal combines her love for the golden age of Hollywood with an offbeat universe, rich in wacky animals, powerful phrases and whimsical symbols. Leopard, spider and cat head prints come in a line of leather goods and accessories that are as classy as they are playful. Handcrafted in Italy, in the purest tradition and decorated with a signature detail, shoes and handbags combine modern lines, refined materials and glamorous details, to settle such new classics. Sarah Jessica Parker, Keira Knightley and Blake Lively, are some of the many celebrities who choose Charlotte Olympia creations to walk the red carpet.
Charlotte Olympia Dellal was born in South Africa. On graduating in 2004 from Cordwainers College in London, she launched her eponymous label in 2008. Her designs are inspired by the glamor and sophistication of the 50s, pinups and actresses from Hollywood's golden age, like Rita Hayworth. Her immoderate love for wallets and high heels and a very assertive idea of sophistication leads to constantly inventing new forms treated with a humorous and offbeat touch. In 2011 she was awarded an Accessory Designer Award by the prestigious British Fashion Council.

Fitting perfectly into the Globetrotter trend, Charlotte Olympia offers us a world tour. Inspired by her trips and safaris, the British designer works on African and animal prints like the leopard, lion and zebra, that she applies to bold and sophisticated bags. The world map and passport are printed on clutches, a true invitation to travel. The colors are warm and earthy.
