Elsa Schiaparelli and Dita Von Teese would find a kindred spirit in shoe and accessory designer Charlotte Olympia Dellal. The half-Brazilian Brit somehow elevates her penchant for surrealism (pink poodles as heels, and slippers with red lip cut-outs or whiskered kitty cats) from cutesy kitsch to fetching glamour worthy of Old Hollywood stars. It’s no wonder everyone is clamoring to collaborate with her—lingerie brand Agent Provocateur, handbag designer Olympia Le-Tan and jewelry designer Tom Binns, to name a few.
