Charlotte Olympia: Fit for the Prime Minister


It's been ten years since Charlotte Olympia captured us all with whimsical shoes and accessories. From surrealist platforms to the iconic Kitty flat, Charlotte Dellal's range of quirky footwear is a firm favourite of fashionistas up and down the land - including the Prime Minister.

We're all well versed in Theresa May's love of shoes, particularly those from high street favourite LK Bennett and Russell & Bromley. Adding a new designer to the mix, May's first pair of Charlotte Olympia's were donned for a good cause.

Supporting 2017's Red Nose Day, Theresa proudly wore a pair of deep red velvet Kitty kitten heels especially designed for her by Dellal. Teaming them with a red jersey dress and cashmere camel blazer from MaxMara for constituency business, the shoes were auctioned, with the proceeds donated to the charity. Whilst it is a secret where those kitten shoes ended up, it's no surprise that Charlotte Olympia's beautiful craftmanship, comfort and design details impressed the PM.

Fast forward to June 2017 and a very similar pair of Kitty heels were debuted by the Prime Minister on a visit to the European Commission in Brussels. Accessorising a navy and pale blue shift and coat by Amanda Wakeley, Theresa May rocked the velvet leopard shoes in true fashionista style. The little tip ears were the giveaway, and many of my lovely readers were as excited as I was to see May wear these fabulous kitten heels.

The PM has worn these pretty frequently over the past several months. They popped up with the gorgeous blue Daniel Blake Orchid jacket at the G20 in Hamberg. They added a touch of fierce to the Florence speech outfit and looked chic with trousers and May's Herno coat when President Macron came to visit. They have made many appearances at the despatch box - and most recently, at last week's Representation of the People Act commemorations.

Perhaps it is safe to say that these are at the top of May's most favoured new purchase list? Who could blame her!

You'll have to act quick to snag a leopard pair, and the red ones are now available to purchase- perhaps the PM will add these to her wardrobe?
