Our wishes have come true… shoe designer Charlotte Olympia has teamed up with Disney on an official capsule collection!
Now, don’t accuse us of witchcraft but we totally saw this one coming.
Not only do Olympia’s quirky creations lend themselves perfectly to Disney’s dreamy back catalogue of pretty princesses and chic villains but in 2013 she designed a fairytale collection taking inspiration from storybook classics such as Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty and The Frog Prince. Elle Fanning even wore her ‘Sleeping Princess’ slippers during a press conference for Maleficent last year.
Then, last week, Olympia was announced as one of eleven designers hand-picked to re-imagine Cinderella’s glass slipper.
Now the London-based shoe-maker has designed three more gorgeous pieces inspired by Cinderella: a Swarovski-encrusted ‘Happily Ever After’ slipper, a pumpkin pouch and a clock-shaped perspex clutch topped off with a tiny shoe clasp. Cinders herself, Lily James, wore the clock bag to the LA premiere of Cinderella on Sunday.
Sadly without a Prince Charming to foot the bill, these fab accessories (which range from £645 to £1,295) are out of our reach but that won’t stop us from drooling over the pics… And we hope to see more Charlotte Olympia x Disney coming our way soon!
