No Business Like Shoe Business

London-based Charlotte Olympia's statement designs are synonymous with bold colors, iconic silhouettes, and impeccable attention to detail.  With style-setting fans like Alexa Chung and Beyoncé, needless to say that Charlotte Olympia's beautiful shoes, such as her signature kitty flats and island platforms, have generated a cult following - worldwide.

In celebration with Chinese New Year, Charlotte Olympia has launched a full collection called "Eastern Cosmic," to include all twelve zodiacs.  The collection consists of "Birthday" shoes ($795) and matching "Pandora" clutches ($1,195).  Each suede flat is adorned with a gold-plated animal, embellished with Swarovski crystals, and embroidered with a Chinese zodiac character in red silk cord.  The clutches, also adorned with an animal and Swarovski crystals, are constructed out of colored perspex, a lightweight and shatter-resistant acrylic glass.  Both items are made in Italy and comes with Charlotte Olympia's witty horoscope book.  There is an adhesive polaroid picture accompanying the flats so that you can archive these beauties among your shoe collection.  Meanwhile, the clutches comes with a dust bag, of course.

Find your sole-mate on CharlotteOlympia.com.  There is also a Western counterpart to this collection, called "Western Cosmic".  Once again, Happy Chinese Near Year!
