Charlotte Olympia - Women's Autumn/Winter 2017-18 collection in London with interview


Designer: Charlotte OlympiaAtmosphere: In a cinema in Mayfair, with characters taken straight from the film, Charlotte Olympia chose to reveal her new collection of accessories by projecting a film about murder and stilettos The collection: Romantic chic always with platforms, heels, heart details, pearls, messages and colour…and clutch bags detailed with characters and stories, therefore very recognizable and all the rage on the red carpetCharlotte Olympia : It’s basically inspired by ‘film noir’ obviously. It’s actually a theme that I am inspired by generally, a sense of my brand comes from that era and it always had regardless why I am inspired by it but this season I think I took something I am whole heartedly inspired by and something that got me into fashion in the first place, I grew up watching film noir as a child with my mother and seeing all those beautiful people on the silver screen, that old school glamour. It was taking something that I love so much and putting it at the forefront of my inspiration and that is something I have never done before because it’s normally something that’s underlying. But this time I went feet in first and did t. So it was something that naturally came to me and it’s something I watch every day. It was fun to do something that I am inspired by but then showing the audience in that way, why not make a movie? So each season as an accessory designer who is new on the circuit, I try to do something different for each season, and this season was inspired by film noir so I made a film noir.Royalty free music / Bandit & Nikit
