Charlotte Olympia 'Anastasia' Matryoshka doll shoes
Charlotte Olympia Dellal has really been letting her imagination go wild in her designs recently, and we have to say we approve of this development - particularly when she turns out flights of fancy like this 'Anastasia' shoe, which is decorated with the cherubic face of a Matryoshka (or Russian) doll on the front of each shoe! As you might imagine, all that detailing makes them more than a little pricey - they are £1,125 at Net-a-Porter - but we're happy just to look.
The sandals, which feature a curly suede detailing on the top and a floral pattern at the base, are made up along the same style lines as most of Dellal's styles for summer 2012, with a blonde wood platform and slender heel finished off with scarlet piping. The inside of the uppers is finished off with mesh. We like the interplay of the colours here, particularly the way the bright yellow surrounding each doll picks up the brightness elsewhere in the shoe. A true piece of wearable art!
